The FERS calculator is a good first step as you develop your plan for federal retirement. There are three key terms we need to cover before you start.
- Your Minimum Retirement Age or MRA is the earliest age you are able to retire as a federal employee. The calculator below requires you to input the year your were born and your estimated age at retirement.
- Next we will verify your FERS Eligibility to retire with a full annuity based on the current OPM guidelines. To retire with a full annuity, there is a minimum age and years worked as a federal employee requirement.
- Lastly, the FERS calculator requires an estimate of your High-3. Your High-3 is the average of your highest-paid period for 36 consecutive months. This three-year period can be at any point in your career. The FERs calculator requires an annual (12 month) salary for this calculation.
