Special retirement supplement


Q. I will be retiring from the Postal Service with 31 years of FERS at the age of 56. My question is about earning limits with the special retirement supplement. If, at age 56, I withdraw all or a portion of my Thrift Savings Plan account, will this affect my SRS from the USPS?

A. No, it won’t. The Social Security earnings limit applies only to earnings from wages or self-employment.
