Q. What is the difference financially between discontinued service retirement and disability retirement? I am 55 with 25 years of service under FERS. My high-3 is as a GS11-07.
A. As a discontinued service retiree, you’d receive 25 percent of your high-3. As a disability annuitant, you’d receive 60 percent of your high-3, minus 100 percent of any Social Security disability benefit for which you qualified.
For the DCSR, what percent of your salary do you receive?
It depends on your retirement system. Are you covered by CSRS or FERS?
