I've been retired from DEA since July 30th of 2011 and am still receiving "interim" monthly payments. OPM cannot tell me when I will be "finalized"... Since I am not "finalized," I have not been receiving the social security supplemental payments that I am eligible to receive from the date that I retired. My best rough estimate is that I have so far missed over $5,000 of supplemental payments. Am I going to receive the missed supplemental payments retroactively once I am "finalized?"  This delay is of no fault of my own; it is OPM's fault for not having their act together. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated; thank you.

You will receive all your supplemental payments when you are finalized. All monies due you will be accounted for in the "blue book" you receive shortly after your finalization. I was FERS and retired 30 Apr 2010 at age 56.

I will retire March 30, 2012 from FERS.  I will have some CSRS.  I already applied for Soc. Sec. and was told by Soc. Sec. that my first check would be April 27, 2012.  Even though Soc. Sec. said I would receive my check in April, would I have to wait till I am finalized before I get my Soc. Sec.?

The topic was the Social Security Supplement paid to FERS retirees prior to age 62. If you have applied for your early social security, you must be 62 already. So the date social security gave you as to when to expect your first social security check is correct. This is not related to the original poster's topic.

...and no, you won't have to be finalised from OPM to receive the check from social security.

And it's not a Social Security Supplement, it's a FERS supplement..   Sorry sometimes things get confused when the term Social Security Supplement is used.  The supplement does not come from Social Security and has nothing to do with Social Security.

Is there a way to figure out approximately what you would get from the SSA if you get supplemental at the age of 62(FERS)?

If you retire at 62, you will not get any FERS Supplement because you are eligible for SS at 62.  The FERS supplement is for those who retired before being eligible for SS.

You should get an estimate of your SS at various ages automatically from SSA.  Or you can use the calculator at  http://ssa.gov/estimator/
