Q. I will be 56 in January 2014 with over 20 years of federal service (included military time bought back). Am I eligible for early retirement? Approximately how much will I be getting monthly?
A. You would be eligible if you met the age and service requirements: at your minimum retirement age with 20 years of service. Your MRA is 56. However, you won’t be going anywhere unless your agency:
1) requests and is approved to offer early retirements; and
2) your position is covered by the authority.
