Q. I just received a letter from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) stating that I am going to receive the Code 67 supplement as part of my Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) retirement. I was awarded Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) as of September 2015. Does my SSDI payment stop me from receiving the Code 67 supplement?
A. If you are a non-disability FERS retiree, you’d be entitled to the Special Retirement Supplement (SRS), whether or not you were later approved for SSDI benefits. If you were a FERS disability retiree, you wouldn’t have been entitled to the SRS at any time.
