FERS supplement


Q: I’m in a law enforcement position and was wondering if the FERS Supplement is also paid to new retirees while on interim payments or are the interim payments only a part of the FERS basic annuity?

A: The special retirement supplement is only paid when your case has been finalized and you are receiving your full annuity. You’ll receive catch-up payments of your SRS along with any additional annuity you are owed because you were on interim pay.
