Military retired pay and Social Security benefits

2

Q. I retired from the Army in 1999 after 25 years of service. In 2000 I went to work for the Department of Defense. I’ll have completed 20 years there next year, when I plan to retire. At that time I’ll be 62. Will I be able to draw military and civil service retired pay and a Social Security benefit?

A. Yes, you will.
