Q. When I retire at 56 I will have 33 years in but was born Jan. 6, 1965. Is there a way I can get the 1.7 percent retirement?
A. Only if you are a law enforcement officer, firefighter or air traffic controller who retires at age 50 with 20 years of covered service or at any age with 25 will your FERS annuity be computed using the higher multiplier.
