Q. I am a FERS employee with 26 years, four months service. I am 51 years, two months old. My place of work is experiencing a restructure/reorganization and is offering VERA/VSIP. Will I be able to get the special retirement supplement when I am at the minimum retirement age? I have a Thrift Savings Plan account and was looking at a lump sum from that.
A. Yes, you will be eligible to receive the special retirement supplement when you reach your MRA.
