Retirement eligibility


Q. I am 61 years old. I have more than 17 years of civilian service. I would like to retire early by age 62. Is this an option with MRA+10? Voluntary early retirement is not an option yet.

A. At age 62, you could retire on an immediate, unreduced annuity with as few as five years of service.
