MRA+10 and the special retirement supplement


Q: I have been working at the U.S. Postal Service for 26 years. I am 58 years old, and I will retire very shortly. I know that I cannot collect the special retirement supplement under these conditions, but will I start to receive the supplement when I turn 60? Or does retiring under the Minimum Retirement Age +10 provision require me to forfeit the SRS totally?

A: No one who retires under the MRA+10 provision is eligible to receive the special retirement supplement. That’s the law.
