Q. I’m retired from the military with 30 years. I have 7 years as a GS-14 and I am 59 years old. Can I get the FERS supplement?
Q. I have two questions: The first is about the special retirement supplement and law enforcement officers. Is it true that the earning limitation doesn’t start until LEOs reach their minimum retirement age? My second question: Can an LEO pay deposits and re-deposits, or buy back or waive military service to be creditable in an LEO computation for retirement? Or does the actual 20 years have to be worked?
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. If a retired Federal Employees Retirement System employee at MRA at 56 years old is receiving the Social Security supplement, is the supplement reduced if that employee continues working another job?
Q. I was told to separate and postpone my retirement to avoid the penalty. I am 58 years old, and will have 16 years at the Defense Department. How does the annuity work? Is it an annual payment or monthly? What is the difference between postpone and defer? Do I submit my intentions to the HRC CPAC when I submit for separation?
