CSRS re-employment


Q: I worked in the VA system from 1974 to 1993 and am eligible to draw my retirement in four years when I am 62. If I am re-employed by the VA before I begin to draw my retirement, will I continue in the CSRS system or must I be part of FERS?

A: You would automatically be covered by CSRS Offset (CSRS and Social Security), with the option of electing to be covered by FERS.
