SRS and retirement


Q: I retired voluntarily on an immediate annuity. I am 56 years old and I have 35 years of federal service. I switched to FERS in 1987, applied and granted SSDI just before I retired. Will I get the SRS?

A: Yes. However, if you had taken FERS disability retirement, the answer would have been no.
