Special retirement supplement qualification


Q. I am 55 and will reach my minimum retirement age in December. If I take the offer for VERA, will I qualify for the special retirement supplement? Or will I get penalized for not waiting until my MRA age?

A. Yes, you will qualify for the SRS, which you’ll begin receiving when you reach your MRA.
