Supplemental annuity


Q.  If I retire at 60 with 20 years of service, and receive the supplemental annuity until age 62, am I then obligated to receive my Social Security benefits at 62 or can I pick up filing for benefits when I reach age 66?

A.  The special annuity supplement ends at age 62. When you apply for a Social Security benefit is up to you.
