Q. I was retired on CSRS disability with 30 years of service at age 52. OPM has sent me a letter that I have made too much money for 2010 through 2012. I would have been eligible for full retirement in July 2009 (and will be age 60 in July 2014). What are my options? Can I convert to full retirement or discontinued service retirement? Can I do this retroactively to 2009?
A. Since you meet the age and service requirements for regular retirement, you could notify OPM that you have recovered from your disability and ask them to make the change. However, that change would be prospective only.
