    • On February 15, 2012, by pol555 - "For individuals not subject to mandatory retirement who choose to retire on or after Jan. 1, 2013, the FERS minimum supplement is eliminated" If HR3813 passes their is no choice for retiring,most federal employees would have to stay till they reach age 62.Congress wants to downsize federal government,but yet they push a bill that would force a large majority to stay years longer than their thirty years. The FERS minimum supplement was part of my retirement package 29 years ago when I started working.Now they want to eliminate it when it's due to be used by many who are leaving federal service,well wake up Congress my FERS annuity is not enough to live on. Thank you Senator Harry Reid and others for continuing to fight for us middle class workers.
