Browsing: Early retirement

Q. I am facing having to retire under a medical retirement. Effective this May I will only have a total of 9 years government service under FERS and I am only 52 years old and not eligible for regular retirement yet. What is the difference between a disability retirement and medical retirement and what would my annuity payment be based on? I was told I would receive 80 percent of my high-3. Is this correct?

Q. I am 61 years old with 20 years of federal service. I am trying to figure out whether I retire now or closer to 62. My plan was to retire next year at the end of July, but I am interested in the supplement that is not granted until I am 62. I am not too happy at my job right now and am thinking about getting out a little earlier. What advice do you have?
