Q. I retired on disability after 23 years under FERS and am now age 60. Will I ever receive full retirement since they take out a percentage for Social Security?
A. I’m not sure what you’re referring to when you say “they take out a percentage for Social Security?” Social Security taxes are only paid by those who have earnings from wages or self-employment, not retirees. Moving on, your disability annuity will end at age 62 when it is converted to a regular retirement. To do that, your actual service will be added to the time you spent on the disability rolls and multiplied by 1.1 percent. That figure will be multiplied by your high-3 salary on the day you went on the disability rolls, increased by all FERS COLAs payable from that time to the present.
