Special retirement supplement


Q. I am currently a LEO under 6c retirement in FERS. I can retire in two years. I am also retired from the military, and receiving my monthly pension. When I retire from the government, I will be getting a Social Security supplement since we are mandated to retire at 57 years old. I was told by a co-worker that my Social Security supplement will be reduced since I am receiving a military pension. Is this true? 

A: No, it isn’t. Your special retirement supplement would only be reduced if you had earnings from wages or self employment that exceeded the annual Social Security limit.
