If you are a long term part-timer and take a full-time 22.3 position, how does the pension work? I've been told 10 different things. Can I combine my part-time years and fulltime years to get 30 years and leave? And start collecting right then or can I combine them and then have to wait to "full-retirement age" of 65 to start collecting? Do they calculate $55 per year for the part-time years when adding the two together? Example 20 yrs p.t.(20 x $55 = $1,100) + 10 yrs f.t.(10 x $108 = $1,080) === $2,180? Thanks in advance.
