Minimum retirement age


Q. If they offer the early retirement this year to postmasters I will have close to 26 years, but I will be just 48 years old in August. Will I be able to retire and get the Social Security Supplement also?

A. If you accept an early retirement offer, you would be eligible for the special retirement when you reach your minimum retirement age. Since you were born between 1953 and 1964, your MRA would be 56.
