SRS timing


Q. I received my first FERS retirement check, but it did not include the supplement. How long does it take to receive this? Is it a separate check or included with the FERS retirement check?

A. You’ll begin receiving the special retirement supplement when your annuity is finalized. That payment will include any retroactive amounts you are due. How long that will take depends on the complexity of your case and the number of cases in line before yours.
