Early retirement / Social Security


Q. I am 50 years old with 25 years of service (FERS). There is talk of an early retirement being offered later this year. If I were to take an early retirement would I receive the Social  Security supplement?

A. You wouldn’t be eligible to receive the special retirement supplement until you reach your minimum retirement age. Since you were born between 1953 and 1964, your MRA is 56.
