Question: My agency is trying to force me out. I will be 61 in October and have 31 years in December. If I retire on January 1 how much can I expect to receive? Can I apply for disability retirement at the same time and would my benefit go up when I reach full retirement? Do I have to take a survivor annuity if I want my husband to be able to keep his insurance should I pass away?
Answer: If you are eligible to retire under the regular rules, then you cannot retire under a disability retirement. To find out how much you can expect to receive under a regular retirement, you should contact your retirement specialist in your human resources office.
