Does anyone know how the pension (if any) works if you quit before your MRA. I tried to look on OPM website and was throughly confused about the process. At this point in I’m looking to getting out at 10-15 years of FAA good time, which would put me 15-10 years from my MRA. Thanks

1% per year of federal service times your high three, so long as you have at least ten years of federal service.

I strongly recommend you put in at least the minimum 20 good ATC years. This puts you at 34%. I just retired myself at age 52 after 28 years of service for 42%.
