WEP and CSRS survivor annuity


Q. I retired under CSRS at age 62.  I do not qualify for Social Security benefits.  My spouse retired at age 62 and collects Social Security. She never worked for the government and collects no other pension. When I die, and she starts collecting a CSRS survivor annuity, will she be affected by WEP?

A. No.
