June 23, 2014 -- Do you think you may be in the wrong federal retirement plan? Should you be in CSRS instead of FERS or vice versa? Should your coverage be CSRS instead of CSRS-Offset?

Join our host, Bob Leins, as he welcomes Bob Braunstein, federal benefits specialist and FERCCA expert, into the studio to discuss the Federal Erroneous Retirement Coverage Corrections Act.

The introduction of FERS complicated retirement coverage decisions led to a number of coverage determination errors.

These include but are not necessarily limited to:

  • erroneously placing employees in FERS who should have remained in CSRS
  • leaving employees in CSRS who should have been placed in FERS
  • or placing employees in FERS whose correct coverage was CSRS Offset
