Special retirement supplement


Q. I’m planning on retiring Sept. 1 at age 56 with 25 years and 30 days in the Postal Service. I haven’t been offered early retirement. Will I be eligible for the special retirement supplement?

A. Because you’ll be retiring under the MRA+10 provision, your annuity will be reduced by 5 percent for every year you are under age 60. Further, you won’t be eligible for the special retirement supplement.
