Q: I retired from federal law enforcement at age 53 after 25 years service in 2009, and began to receive the FERS annuity supplemental. I worked in private industry from August 2009 – August 2010, and again from November 2011 – September 2014, during which time my FERS supplement was justifiably reduced and then stopped. I have not worked since October, 2014 and would like to re initiate the Supplement. Question; how would I do that and will I receive the supplement retroactively from January 2015 to present?

Q. I recently retired from CBP as a FERS retiree at 67 years of age. I want to take a six month, 1,039 hours job as a Ranger/guide at the local National Park. It seems I will lose my National Park Service salary because of my CBP annuity and basically be working for free. Is this correct?

Q. I retired under FERS in 2009 after 15 years of service (MRA). I received a buy out under VSIP. I am 66 years old and have been collecting Social Security since 62. Can I apply for a federal position with the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Defense Department?
Q. I am a FERS employee and had nine years of active-duty military time and 11 years of reserve before becoming a federal employee. I bought this active-duty time back. Now I have 16 years as a federal employee and the nine years of military time. My understanding is that under FERS, the military time is creditable service up front (I have 25 years of creditable service for retirement purposes). Is this correct? At 60 years old, I’m receiving military retirement. Do I need to waive my military retirement in order to receive FERS retirement or have two separate retirements?
Q. I am 57 years old. I plan to retire from the U.S. Postal Service on April 1, 2016, with 29 years and eight months under my belt, plus three years of military buy back, equaling 32 years and eight months of creditable service. Will I have to do the full 30 years under FERS to get the special retirement supplement?
