Special retirement supplement


Q. I am 63 years old and have FERS retirement. I would like to retire now but really need to hold out for two more years to get the maximum Social Security that I can draw. If I voluntarily retire right now at 63, am I able to draw the FERS supplement until age 65?

A. No. The special retirement supplement automatically ends at age 62, when you are first eligible for a Social Security benefit.
