Q. Because of medical reasons, I’m considering retiring early. My age is 58, and I have 28 years of federal employment, non-military. I know that I will deduct 5 percent for every year until I reach 60 for my pension. Would I receive the special retirement supplement if I retire now? I have reached my minimum retirement age.
A. No, you wouldn’t. No one who retires under the MRA+10 provision (minimum retirement age with at least 10 years of service) is eligible for the special retirement supplement.
