Service Computation Date after buying back military time

I initially hired into federal service in September, 1992 and worked until June 2003. I returned to federal service on April 1, 2007. My SCD date then showed July 4, 1993. Taken into consideration the almost 4 year break. This year, I bought back my initial military time from June 1972 to June 1975, paying it in full. Shouldn’t this time change my SCD?

Since your break in service and your military are both four years that is why your SCD did not change. Why it wasn’t corrected when you initially returned to federal service, I cannot explain.

Yes, my military time was 3 years and I bought that time back this year, paying it in full. I feel that my SCD date is not correct and should be one year earlier, correct? I can send the exact dates of service, if that will help you in helping me. I have been told from several sources that my current SCD is wrong. Thanks so much!

If you provide me with exact dates I would be more than happy to calculate for you and show you what and how I come up with that date.

Thanks so much! My initial enlistment was 06/15/1972 to 06/03/1975 (2 yrs, 11 mo. 19 days). My government service started 09/06/1992 to 06/13/2003. I rejoined government service on 04/01/2007. I bought back the military time this year. I hope this will help. Thanks again!

A little background first. Your leave SCD includes almost everything whereas your retirement SCD only includes creditable civilian and military service. Having made your military deposit, it now becomes creditable for retirement whereas it always did for leave. Most documents only show your leave SCD so unless you understood that they were different, you would not realize the military service had not counted for retirement. You had 2 years 11 months and 19 days active service. In addition, you worked 10 years 9 months and 8 days prior to return to federal service. If you add those two together, you have a total of 13 years 8 months and 27 days total creditable service. If you subtract that from you most recent hire date of April 1, 2007, that gives you both a leave and retirement SCD of July 4, 1993. This can be confusing unless you live and breath HR! I hope this makes me it more clear.

It does, indeed and I thank you for taking the time to figure this out for me. I will retire on December 28th this year. I hopes that your detailed answer will help someone else who may have this question. Take care and have a great Thanksgiving!
