Browsing: Minimum retirement age

Q. I’ve just received notice that I am eligible for VERA at the U.S. Postal Service and adding up my years found that I’ve been with the Postal Service for 19 years and 6 months. However, I just turned 53 and I bought my military time of 3 years when I first entered the Postal Service. Retirement would be possible if I qualify for SRS. Do I qualify for the SRS? And If I do, when does it go into effect?

Q. I have 20 years of service at 50 years of age. I am thinking about leaving the government. I plan to defer my retirement. I understand if I do this, I will lose my health and life benefits. I also understand I would not lose them if I wait until I am 56. My question is, if I return to the government when I am 57, and retire at 60, will I be eligible to receive full retirement benefits? That would give me 23 years of service at 60.

Q. I am 56, but only have six years of government service time. Even though I’ve worked for a U.S. government agency for 31 years, only my time with government service counts toward retirement. Would I be allowed to leave the government before my minimum retirement age and take a deferred annuity at age 62? If this is possible, would I be able to keep my medical coverage?
