Early retirement


Q. I have 18 years of service and I am 51 years old. Can I do an early retirement and receive Social Security and pension?

A. No. If your agency was offering early retirement, you would have to meet one of the following age and service requirements: age 50 with 20 years of service or at any age with 25. You don’t meet either requirement.
