Social Security Supplement


Q: I am 52 years old with 27 years with the Postal Service (FERS). How would it affect me if I accepted the Voluntary Early Retirement Authority (VERA)? Would I get the Social Security Supplement upon acceptance?

A: No. You wouldn’t receive it until you reached your minimum retirement age, which in your case would be 56.
