 CREDITING CIVILIAN SERVICE FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVED A REFUND OF RETIREMENT DEDUCTIONS

If you have service covered by retirement deductions and the deductions were refunded to you, the service is potentially creditable toward FERS retirement. Section 1904 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2010, Public Law 111-84, enacted October 28, 2009 now provides the authority for current FERS employees who took a refund of their FERS deductions to make a redeposit of the amount refunded, plus interest.

If you repay your FERS refunded contributions, the service will be used to determine your creditable years of service for retirement eligibility and be used to compute the amount of your annuity.

If you do not repay your FERS refunded contributions, the service will be used to determine your creditable years of service for retirement eligibility; however, it will not be used to compute the amount of your annuity.

 ACTION REQUIRED TO MAKE A REDEPOSIT

  1. Complete and sign page 1 (Part A) of the SF 3108, Application to Make Deposit or Redeposit.
  2. Mail the SF 3108 to the Civilian Benefits Center (CBC).
  3. The CBC will complete page 2 (Part B) and forward the application to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
  4. OPM will review your application and will send you a statement of the amount of deposit (including accrued interest) you owe. Application processing is currently taking 6 - 8 months. If you have submitted an application but have not received a statement from OPM, you can call OPM at 888-767-6738 for a status.
  5. Once you receive this statement you may pay the amount in full or make installment payments of at least $50. You can mail your payments directly to OPM as instructed on the statement or make electronic payments using Pay.gov. Interest will continue to accrue on the unpaid balance until it is paid in full.
  6. Once the deposit is paid in full, retain the OPM statement showing payment for your records. You should submit a copy of the receipt with your retirement application.
  7. Contact the Benefits Line if you have questions about the process for making a redeposit or how redeposit service may impact your retirement annuity.
