Federal Benefits Q&A

Question: “If you are a current GS civil servant and accept a presidentially appointed position as an SES or GS15, etc., does your current time in service carry over and count toward retirement and high three?”

Question: “If you are a current GS civil servant and accept a presidentially appointed position as an SES or GS15, etc., does your current time in service carry over and count toward retirement and high three?”

Answer: Yes, if one accepts a presidential appointment, then one's previous time under will count for retirement eligibility and annuity computation. As far as high-three average salary is concerned, if working for three years as a presidential appointee results in the highest three consecutive years of salary during the individual's federal working career, then those years will be used in the high-three average salary computation.
