Q. If I resign from the government, am I required to leave my money in the retirement fund to be eligible for a deferred annuity at age 60 (to avoid the age reduction)? I want to transfer my retirement fund to my own securities personal bank. To be eligible for an early out, do you have to be at your minimum retirement age?
A. If you withdrew your retirement contributions, you would void your entitlement to a deferred annuity. To be eligible for an offer of early retirement, you’d have to meet one of the following combinations of age and service: age 50 with 20 years of service or at any age with 25 years of service.
