Q. I am under the FERS retirement system. I am currently on sick leave and during this time have met my 30 years in service and minimum retirement age. Can I retire on an immediate annuity while on sick leave, and am I eligible for the special retirement supplement? I have proper medical documentation.
A. I’m not aware of anything that would prevent you from retiring while on sick leave nor of being entitled to the special retirement supplement. However, you’ll have to work with you agency to complete the necessary paper work and to process out.
