Q. I’m 58 and have worked under FERS for 20 years. If I take an early-out, do I get any penalties? What would my retirement benefit be?

A. If you retired under the Voluntary Early Retirement Authority, you wouldn’t be subject to an age penalty. Your annuity would be computed using the standard formula: .01 x your high-3 x your years and full months of service.
