Special retirement supplement eligibility


Q. I have 26 years with the Postal Service under FERS. I am 59 years old. If I retire now, am I eligible for the special retirement supplement? Or do I have to wait until I’m 60? I have not been offered early-out incentives.

A. Since you would be retiring under the MRA+10 provision, you wouldn’t be entitled to the special retirement supplement at any age.
