Q. I recently turned 62. Four years ago, I had my disability retirement approved by the United States Postal Service. Unfortunately, Social Security did not approve my disability and I didn’t receive any monthly benefit until I turned 62 and that was at the non-disability dollar rate. Does my USPS disability retirement monthly annuity increase to what a voluntary immediate retirement is? And, since I turned 62 several months ago, will the Office of Personnel Management process a lump sum payment to cover those several months?

Q. I am retired and receive an annuity payment ever month. I have been having real bad back problem – my disk in my back affects my walking, I had the nerve burned and shot in my back – but nothing seem to help. Do I qualify for disability insurance? I’m 72 years old. Can I receive both benefits?

Q. I served 37 months of active duty in the Army from October ’74 to November ’77 and another seven years active duty in the Coast Guard from ’80 to ’87. All together I have over 10 years of active duty. Is there any chance that I can collect anything from the U.S. government? I’m 63 years old at this point.
