Q. I retired a year ago with 28 years of civil service. I took an early-out, so I was 48 years old at retirement. My minimum retirement age would have been 56. Do I have to wait until I am 56 to receive the special retirement supplement? Is there any Social Security supplement I can receive now?
A. You won’t be entitled to the special retirement supplement until you reach your MRA. And no, there isn’t any Social Security supplement you can receive now.
