Retirement eligibility


Q. I am a District of Columbia government employee and came in the city government under CSRS (before September 1987) when the district’s government changed from federal to its own retirement and benefits plan. I am 58 years old and have 27 years and nine months of CSRS government service without a break. I have 1,100 hours of sick leave. I will be 60 in May 2015. How soon am I eligible to retire?

A. At age 60.
