VERA/VSIP and special retirement supplement


Q. In September 2014, I will be 55 years old with 29 years of service. My minimum retirement age for full retirement is 56 (with 30 years). If I am offered a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority/Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay in September 2014 and take it, when would I start drawing my special retirement supplement?  I will be 56 in March 2015.

A. When you reach your MRA.
