Q. I am in FERS, born June 20, 1953, with a service computation date of Nov. 6, 1983, and eligible to retire June 19. I just saw where my position is going to be a part of the reduction in force. If the RIF happens before my retirement date, will I still get my special retirement supplement? Would I get a buyout?
A. Yes, you would be able to receive an unreduced annuity and the special retirement supplement. No, you wouldn’t be entitled to a buyout. However, you could accept one if it was offered to you by your agency.
