I spent 15 years in the Air Force. I took the early retirement and money. With that, I had to spend time in the AF Reserve. The issue is that I am short 9 mos of my 20 years to get to retire.

Is there a waiver? I have tried unsuccessfully to get a Civilian position (GS) to make up the 9 months I am lacking. I think that as soon as they see I was a Vietnam Vet, they know how old I am.

Does anyone know who I can contact or where I could apply for a waiver for the 9 months?

Thanks!!!

That is certainly a good idea. I was hoping there was an office and or a format that I needed to follow to do this.

Why did you post this in the "Ohio" forum? I suggest you repost in the "Military" forum.

Why didn't you stay in the AF Reserve in order to make your time?

Since you took an early retirement, I don't understand what you are looking for. Are you working on another retirement?

There are a lot of unanswered questions. Why would anyone get a waiver?

I'm a bit confused by this post - you took an early retirement at 15 years, but somehow can't get retirement at 19 and change?

That said, with veteran's preference I'm surprised you aren't able to get a GS position. Veteran's preference dominates above almost all else when you apply for those jobs.

Default No I didn't retire

Back in '92 they offered "early out" to those qualifying which I did. It's on my discharge. What they did was discharge me from Active AF and then immediately put me in the Reserves, inactive. The time of AF and AFR was supposed to equal to 20 years. However my case it didn't.
So I called AFR and they totaled everything up and said I couldn't retire due to me being short 9 mos.. So what I am trying to do is find a way to put in a waiver for 9 mos..
I worked directly for three Generals and know this can be done. If any of them were alive I would contact them.

So I am out of knowledge on how to get this 9 mos waiver. Please any info would be helpful

I was told try a recruiter, that was a no go and while they didn't say it couldn't be done, they didn't know how to do it.

Thanks for any help!!!

Because I am a newb! LMAO. Will look for the other forum.
I chose Ohio because it's where I currently reside.

Yeah mispoke. I took an early out. Then went to AF Reserve immediately. Went inactive.

I really can't think of any way someone can pull strings to get a waiver when no waiver is authorized by law. Had you been on active status, all sorts of things could be done. Even if taking an early out and knowing how many points you needed would have enabled someone to finagle the right status for you. But (sit at home) inactive reserve removes all options. The only options while on inactive status I can think of is being moved to a full reserve unit and participating in point generating activities, or, get someone to get you back into active duty, or have someone pull strings to get you involved in inactive reserve point generating activities such as instruction, Honor Guard, or even some volunteer activity on a military facility or at a military function. The first think I would recommend is find out what earns you points and focus on achieving what is needed instead of hoping for an elusive waiver.
