Q. If I accept a VERA with just over 30 years of service under FERS at age 54 and with just under 18 months to go before I reach 56 or my MRA, would I still be immediately eligible at early separation for the special retirement supplement under a VERA, or do I have to wait until I turn 56?

A. The special retirement supplement will begin when you reach your MRA.
