Early retirement and penalties


Q. I am 56 years old with 27 years of employment at the Postal Service, all FERS years with no military. Contemplating taking the offer but confused about penalties for early retirement.

A. Because you would be accepting an offer of retirement, there wouldn’t be any age penalty.
