  • CSRS Reemployed Annuitant

    I disagree with some of the answer to Walt's question. As a CSRS annuitant, if he is reemployed without a waiver of the salary offset provisions, retirement deductions will not be automatically withheld from his salary. He must make an election to have CSRS deductions withheld or he can made a deposit for the service when he separates from reemployment. Also, after 3 years of service, his original CSRS annuity would continue and he would be entitled to a supplimental annuity for his additional service. He would have to serve 5 years, as planned, to be entitled to a redetermined annuity in which his annuity is recomputed using all of his service (service before his original retirement plus his reemployment service) and a new high-3 average salary computation.

    FedMom is correct regarding the 5 year requirement for a recomp. I'm a reemployed annuitant, having returned to federal service last year. After several months and many emails to my agency's HR and OPM I started having CSRS deducted from my offset pay. From http://www.opm.gov/retire/post/life/reemployment.asp: A supplemental annuity is an annuity that is added on to your present annuity. If you work as a reemployed annuitant on a full time, continuous basis for at least 1 year, you may be entitled to a supplemental annuity. If you work part time, you must work a proportionately longer period to earn a supplemental annuity. A redetermined annuity is a recomputed annuity that takes the place of your present annuity. If your reemployment continues for at least 5 years, or the part-time equivalent, you may elect a redetermined annuity.

  • FERS Reemployed Annuitant
    FedMom
    In many ways, the rules for FERS reemployed annuitants are the same as CSRS. FERS retirement deductions and FICA are automatically withheld (no election required); however, if the annuitant is employed on intermittent basis only FICA is withheld. Like CSRS, the FERS annuitant will be eligible for a supplimental annuity after 1 year of continuous full time service (or part time equivalent) and will be eligible for a redetermined annuity after 5 years of continuous full time service (or part time equivalent). Additional information is also available in the The CSRS and FERS Handbook chapter related to reemployed annuitants at: http://www.opm.gov/retire/pubs/handbook/C100.pdf
