Q. Because of medical reasons, I’m considering retiring early. My age is 58, and I have 28 years of federal employment, non-military. I know that I will deduct 5 percent for every year until I reach 60 for my pension. Would I receive the special retirement supplement if I retire now? I have reached my minimum retirement age.
Q. I am planning to take a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority. I work for the Transportation Security Administration and will have my 10 years of service with them when I plan to leave. I am 56 years old. I am mainly concerned with the medical/dental, etc. benefits, which I have had for myself as well as my family for the entire 10 years. Will they still be covered, too?
Q. I have 10 years with the military for which I haven’t made a deposit, and I will have 10 years in civil service. I’m a 55-year-old FERS employee. When will be the soonest time I can retire? If I leave the federal service before 62, can I still get my retirement when I’m 62?
Q. I have worked since I was 14. I am now just about to turn 50. I have been a hard worker during my life and my body just cannot take it anymore. I have made between $30 and $110,000 a year. My wife works and makes decent money. What are my options? I have not worked for the last two years.
Q. I have been working full time for the Department of Veterans Affairs (term employee in research) for nine years and four months. We may have to move out of state for my husband’s job.

Q. I just received my 2016 personal statement of benefits from the U.S. Postal Service and my date of retirement eligibility is Feb. 10, 2019.. I’ll be 56 the next day, which is my minimum age of retirement. My total creditable service will be 29 years and five months. Do I get full retirement benefits, annuity, and a Social Security supplement or MRA + 10, since my creditable service is under 30 years?
Q. What is the difference between FERS retirement and federal disability retirement? If there is a difference, can they be combined? I have seven years of service. Is it more beneficial to push until at least 10 years of employment with Veterans Affairs? I am 54 years old and sick.
