Q. I took an early retirement incentive from the Postal Service beginning Jan. 31, after serving 23 years, at age 56. I have started receiving my annuity benefit from the post office, but have yet to get the special retirement supplement that I was supposed to receive. Do I have to communicate with anyone special, or do I just have to wait for things to be calculated?
A. You won’t receive the special retirement supplement until your annuity is finalized. Then you’ll receive both it, retroactive to the month of your first interim payment, and all the SRS that you are due.
