The request for a SF-50 should include the employee's full name, Social Security number, birth date and information pertaining to the dates of any previous employment, including the agency name and its contact information. Current federal employees can contact their human resources departments for this information.

Form SF-50 is the only form of proof on which retirement and pension determinations are made.

    How do you get out of the National Guard?

    A:

    Joining the National Guard involves signing a contract and taking an oath, making it highly difficult and at times impossible to de-enlist or quit, so retracting an enlistment into the National Guard or Reserves requires a request for full discharge, which must be submitted to the commanding officer of the member's unit. The request should be submitted in writing and should detail the reasons for the desire to retract the enlistment.
