Early retirement


Q. I am 50 years old with 29 years of FERS service. Would I be able to retire with 30 years of service and start receiving my retirement when I reach my minimum retirement age without a penalty?

A. No. Unless your agency offered you an early retirement opportunity, the earliest you could retire would be when you reach your MRA.
