Q. I am a letter carrier covered by FERS and I have 26 years in. I am 49 years old and my minimum retirement age is 56 years and six months. I would like to leave the post office, get a job with the Veterans Affairs Department and work there until my MRA. Would I get the same retirement at VA as I would get with USPS if I stayed there until my MRA?

A. Yes. The Postal Service and VA, like all other departments and agencies of the federal government, are under the same retirement system.
