Q. I retired in June 2010 at 56 with more than 30 years’ service. I receive a regular FERS retirement, not disability.
But I do have a disability — an above-the-knee amputation.
If I apply for and receive Social Security Disability Insurance, how will my FERS retirement be affected?
A. According to OPM, you will receive both your FERS annuity and the special retirement supplement even if you will be receiving a Social Security disability benefit.
