Automatic supplement


Q: Are the Social Security supplement and the special retirement supplement automatic, or do you have to contact OPM to set this up at the minimum age of eligibility? I retired at 52.4 years of age and I turn 56 in April. I was wondering if I have to contact OPM to recieve this supplement?

A: Payment of the special retirement supplement is automatic.
