Special Retirement Supplement


Q. I retired on a disability from a law enforcement position at the age of 47, and I always thought that I would be able to get the SRS from the age of 57 until 62. However, the Office of Personnel Management said no. Is this correct?

A. Yes, it is. Disability retirees are never entitled to the Special Retirement Supplement.
