Special retirement supplement


Q. I recently received my FERS benefit estimate from the Postal Service regarding the Voluntary Early Retirement Authority offering to all eligible clerks. I am 53 years old with 27 years and 11 months of service.  Am I eligible for the special retirement supplement (It was not included on my estimate I received)? If I am not eligible because of my age, will it be added to my annuity by the Office of Personnel Management when I turn 56?

A. Although you are too young to be eligible for the special retirement supplement now, you will begin receiving it when you reach age 56.
