Q. I took a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority in 2009 at age 52. If I turn 56 (my minimum retirement age) on April 19, will I receive the special retirement supplement starting on my May 1 check, or do I have to wait a full 30 days after I turn 56 to receive the supplement beginning with my June 1 check?
A. If you reach your MRA on April 19, you wouldn’t receive the annuity supplement payment until the June 1 check (for May 1-30). That June 1 check would also include the annuity supplement due for the partial month of April.
