Some of the conditions that could cause the annuitant to receive less than the agency's NET estimate are: a FERS annuity supplement, unpaid service credit deposits, redeposits or military deposits, a court order on file at OPM, or the retiree is entitled to a special computation as a Law Enforcement Officer, Fire Fighter, Air Traffic Controller or other special retirement group.
We will contact annuitants who retired before age 65 shortly before their 65th birthday.
At that time, the annuitant may elect either Full Reduction or No Reduction for each separate multiple of Option B.
