Q: I have 24 1/2 years with the U.S. Postal Service under FERS. I paid the deposit for seven years of military time and 2 1/2 years with the Federal Aviation Administration. I am 58 and have reached minimum retirement age with 34 years of total service, but only have 24 1/2 years as a FERS employee. Will my Social Security special supplement be calculated to include my military and FAA time of 9 1/2 years?
A: Your special retirement supplement will be based solely on the time you were employed under FERS.
