That is what happens when you don't pay back your military time for retirement within the first three years and then wait a "few" years... :bawling: :bawling:

Had I payed it back within the first three years it would have cost me $1097... :redmad:

Nobody to blame but myself.. :leftright

It is worth $333 per month for life. So I have to live at least a year after I retire to break even... :D

Just passing along to anyone that is in the military that may go into Civilian service afterwards. :thumbsup:

$300/month?!?!?! I guess I need to wander over to personnel... I was under the impression I didn't have any paybacks to make??? My service time is right in there with yours though. We're not talking Social Security right? Of course I've got a few more years before I can sleep in on Mondays...

Did you start out under FERS or CSRS? Voluntary switch or mandatory?

I started under FERS and wasn't give an option. The rules under CSRS may be completely different.

Here are some good links:

When I did the calculations I figured a "salary at time of retirement" of $100K and a top 3 of $100K... I figure by 2019, I dang well should be making that much!!! Then I just did the calculation with and without the extra 4 years of military service.


Here's how it works:
Get a copy of your DD-214
Complete form RI 20-19 (www.opm.gov/forms/pdf_fill/RI20-97.pdf ) and submit it and a copy of your DD-214 to the appropriate military branch (addresses are on the form).
They complete the form and mail it back to you (in a month or so) with the total amount you earned.
Complete form SF 3108 ( http://www.opm.gov/FORMS/html/sf.asp) (the military time is on page 4, not page 2/3)
Send copies of your DD-214, completed RI-20-18, and SF 3108 to your agencies HR people.

They will then send you a bill with payment options.

It is a little time consuming, but nothing real hard unless you have lots of different services.
