Q. I am currently 52 years old with 32 years in the U.S. Postal Service. I am being offered a VERA. Am I eligible to receive the FERS supplement at my current age?

A. No, you aren’t eligible. You wouldn’t be entitled to the FERS retirement supplement until you reached your minimum retirement age, which is 56 years and three months.
