Retire at age 60


Q.  I will be 60 on Nov. 30 and I have 26 years of working at the VA hospital. I also have three years and seven months of military time that I haven’t paid for. When can I retire?

A. Regardless of whether you are covered by CSRS and FERS, because you have at least 20 years of service, you’ll be eligible to retire at age 60.
