Disability retirement


Q. I am 43 years old. I have worked for the federal government for 13 years and was approved for disability retirement. If I take federal disability retirement for only one year and stop, how does that affect future retirement options/annuity payments from the federal government?

A. You’d be able to apply for a deferred annuity at age 62.
