If you hit 20 years and you are a SSG is it retirement or RCP? I'll be 20 years with 20 days by my ETS date.

Did you apply for retirement? You are eligible to retire at 20 years.

No I havent yet. But my question is, when I reach my ETS date I would be 20 years with 20 days, Can I retire and collect retirement or is it RCP and I dont collect anything just a hand shake and thank you for your service?

If you will have 20 years active federal service, you will retire with a pension. When you are at 18, you hit sanctuary and can start the transition process. You can submit your retirement packet at your 19 year mark.

Do they count basic and AIT time? I heard they don't count basic or AIT time for retirement. Is that true?

I don't know who told you that information because that is false. When you start basic training as an active duty servicemember, that starts your 20-year clock. Just look at your ERB and look at your BASD date. That date starts counting your first date of active service.
