Disabilty retirement


Q. I have been approved for FERS disability retirement but I am not receiving any checks yet. My High-3 pay is around $53,300. I only worked for 2½ years. What would my annuity payments be? I am 65 years old and on $1,100 a month of Social Security disability. How will the FERS disability affect my Social Security disability?

A. You’ll find the answer to your question at www.opm.gov/retirement-services/publications-forms/csrsfers-handbook/c061.pdf. Just scroll to Section 61B2.1-4.
