United Benefits - Military Buyback Calculator

Military Buyback Calculator


How will military buyback affect my federal retirement?

Military buyback can make a big difference in your federal retirement. This easy to use calculator will help you determine your deposit.

If you have active honorable military service that isn’t already being ‘used’ towards a military retirement – there is a very good chance that you can ‘buy’ that time back and have it count towards your federal retirement.

If you do a military buyback – it will increase the number of years in service that are used for your annuity/pension calculation. The more years you have – the larger your federal pension.

If thinking about retirement feels overwhelming, you’re not alone. It can be difficult to navigate your retirement benefit package. United Benefits trained retirement specialists can help you understand your retirement options. We offer one-on-one retirement assistance and classes to members.
