Your Retirement 6C Date is the date you first were employed in a 6C position, if you have continuous 6C service. If you leave and then return to a 6c covered position this date will change accordingly.

The only place that I have seen a SCD (service computation date) referred to as a retirement SCD is in my yearly benefit letter put out by OPM. It is a computed date that gives credit for military time and any other federal service. That being said, the retirement SCD that was on my benefit letters was always the same--both before and after I bought back my military time. So I concluded that OPM was merely using my SCD for leave purposes as the retirement SCD.

The 6c date is the one that determines when you are eligible to retire--age 50 and 20 yrs(CSRS and FERS) or 25 yrs(FERS).

If you want to know how a SCD is computed you can download info at http://www.opm.gov/feddata/gppa/gppa06.pdf
