VERA and special retirement supplement


Q. I am a FERS employee with 28 years of service and just turned 56 years of age. If there was a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority offered, would I be eligible for the special retirement supplement?

A. Yes, immediately if you were born in 1952 through 1964. If you were born after 1964, when you reach your minimum retirement age.
