FERS – Military Buy Back and Divorce


Entered federal service in 1999 and commenced FERS buy-back of 13 military years (pre-1999) in 2000, thru bi-weekly allotments from 2000-2016. I married in 2002 and divorced in 2018. Will retire in 2019 with 20 years of active FERS service, and 13 buyback, thus 33 yrs. Does former spouse have any claim to the buy-back yrs in FERS pension, or just the 16 of marriage?

That answer will be determine by your divorce decree. Normally it is a percentage based on years of service compared to years of marriage.
