Bookmark and Share

Q. I’m a FERS employee with 23 years of service and I’ll reach my minimum retirement age in July. If a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority is offered and separation is required before July, do I forfeit the special retirement supplement, or is it just delayed until I reach MRA?

A. FERS employees who accept a VERA before they reach their minimum retirement age will begin receiving it when they reach their MRA.
