I worked for Uncle Sam for about one year in 2002. I left federal service, and received a refund of my FERS deductions. I rejoined federal service in 2009 and have been a fed since then. Am I eligible to redeposit my 2002 FERS withdrawal (previously refunded to me), to be able to claim that year of service towards meeting retirement eligibility? I searched the OPM website and can't find specifics on this, nor can I find where/how to see how much I was refunded in 2002.

Thank you.

I would complete an SF-3108, Application to Make Service Credit Payment (FERS). https://www.opm.gov/forms/pdf_fill/sf3108.pdf

The form itself says the general rule is that if you were re-employed with FERS "on or after October 28, 2009," you CAN redeposit previously refunded FERS service. I would fill the form out and see what happens.

If you are a current Fed, form needs to go to your Agency's HR. They have to certify it and then forward to OPM. It can take about 9-10 months to get a statement from OPM as to what you owe. Once you have that, you can decide whether or not to repay it.
