Q. I had 32 years in civil service and resigned at the age of 52. I left my retirement in place to file at a latter date. I am 61. When can I file for my CSRS retirement? I was told when I resigned by human resources I had to be 62. Is this true, or can I file and get retirement at age 61?
A. No, you can’t. You’ll have to wait until you are age 62.
