Special retirement supplement


Q. I am retiring in February and expecting the special retirement supplement. Apparently, the federal 2014 budget canceled the supplement. Does that apply to newly hired employees or current employees? Does the language in the budget establish a cutoff date for the supplement?

A. You are mistaken. The provision to eliminate the special retirement supplement didn’t make it into the approved budget.
