SRS eligibility


Q. I will have 33 years of federal service when I reach my minimum retirement age of 56. Nine of the 33 years are military buyback years. Do I meet the eligibility required for the FERS special retirement supplement between 56 and 62 years of age?

A. Yes. And the amount would be based solely on your actual years of FERS service.
