Q. Is it true that any FERS employee who leaves government and postpones the annuity to avoid the age reduction would not get the special retirement supplement? I ask because I have reached my minimum retirement age of 56, with 26 years of service. What would happen if I left the government for another job and postponed my annuity until age 60?
