6(c) coverage and retirement

0

Q. I joined the Marine Corps in 1988, served until 1992 and bought back my deposit. I then worked under federal law enforcement — 6(c) coverage — until 2001, when I transferred to a non-6(c) covered position until 2004, with no break in service. I then immediately obtained a position under the 6(c) provisions with no breaks in service as a special agent and am still employed. I am 43 years old and will have 32 years of federal service at age 50. At what age can I switch to a non-6(c) position and still retire with the law enforcement/firefighter…

Retiring at 30 years with FERS

0

Q. I am a FERS employee with 22 years of service. I will have 30 years of service in eight more years and will also be 50. Can I retire with 30 years of service and collect (i.e., request an early retirement package)? I’ve read the deferred retirement, but my understanding is I would not be able to receive a pension until my MRA, 57.

FERS, special retirement supplement and reduction in force

0

Q. I have 29 years of federal service and am 50 and under FERS. If I am involuntarily separated by a reduction in force at age 50, do I get the FERS Social Security bridge along with my Discontinued Service Retirement, or do I have to wait until I turn 56 to collect the bridge portion of my retirement? Does this start automatically with the DSR, or do I have to apply for the bridge with SSA when I am 56?

Q. I’m considering resigning from federal service because I’ve been unable to find a federal job at my husband’s new job location across the country. I have career status with 18 years of total federal service, six of which was bought back military time. I was born in 1959, so my minimum retirement age is 56; I’m 53 now. If I resign now with the intention of taking a deferred annuity when I reach 62, do I do anything in the process of separating that might affect my ability to return to the federal workforce? It’s my understanding that I don’t apply…

Options for leaving federal work at 48

0

Q. I am 48 and have 30 years of federal service. I work for the Department of Veterans Affairs and have not heard any discussions about buyouts, early outs, etc. What options do I have for early retirement, buyout, resign, etc.? In my opinion, if someone has worked 30 consecutive years, there should be no minimum retirement age. A. That may be your opinion, but it isn’t the law. If you want to leave before you meet the age and service requirements to retire, you can do that. You only option would be to apply for a deferred retirement at…

Q. I retired under CSRS at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, on Aug. 31 and I deferred my Voluntary Separation Incentive Payment to 2013. The first installed payment is supposed to be six months after retirement. I have not received any notification that a payment will be made. Do I contact the Office of Personnel Management, or does this payment come from another agency? A. OPM has nothing to do with it. You’ll have to contact your former agency.

Deferred annuity

Q. I was separated by a reduction in force in March 1996. I left all retirement dollars in CSRS. I have more than 21 years of combined federal service from the Department of the Army and Department of Energy. I am 56. Can I apply for a deferred retirement at age 60 (with over 20 years service) since my separation from DOE was due to a reduction in force, or do I have to wait until age 62 to apply for my deferred retirement? A. As a former CSRS employee, your only option is to apply for a deferred annuity…

Deferred retirement eligibility

0

Q. I have 26 years of federal service under FERS. I am 51 years old.  I would like to leave federal government.  Am I eligible to apply for a deferred retirement? If so, how is my penalty calculated? A. Because you have at least 20 years of service, you could resign and apply for a deferred retirement at age 60. Your annuity would be calculated using the standard formula: 0.01 x your high-3 x your years and full months of service. Your high-3 would be determined by your highest three consecutive years of average salary on the day you left.

Q. I am a federal agent with the Department of Homeland Security. I have 18 years on and am 47 years old. If the furlough goes into effect, and they offer early-outs, is there a way for me to take it? Will I lose a huge chunk of my retirement? Will the deferred annuity work for me? I have a couple of prospects for private-sector employment with great benefit packages. I just would like to know is it worth staying the last two years. A. You don’t meet the age and service requirements for early retirement: age 50 with 20…

Q. When I was 50, I left government service with 13 years paid into CSRS and was told at 62 I would be eligible for CSRS retirement benefits. I received a statement from OPM saying I can make a deposit to get credit for seven years of nondeduction service by paying into the retirement system. I am 60 now and will have 20 years of service after paying. Am I eligible to start receiving retirement pay now, or must I wait until I am 62? A. Yes, you can make a deposit to get credit for those seven years. No,…
