SSDI and regular retirement pay


Q. I retired Dec. 31, 2013, from the Federal Bureau of Prisons. I worked 23 years and worked four years in the Air Force. I currently receive annuities from my high-3 and also FERS annuity supplement. Can I also receive SSDI along with my regular retirement pay?

A. If you were to be approved for Social Security Disability Insurance, it would have no affect on either your FERS annuity or your special retirement supplement.
