Correct retirement coding of reemployed annuitants


Q: We have an employee who retired April 3, 2001, and was rehired as a reemployed annuitant, Oct. 7, 2002. The employee was coded with the retirement Plan of (1) CSRS and Annuitant Indicator of (1) Reempl Ann-CS. Is this correct, or should he have been coded as CSRS Offset?

A: If he was a CSRS employee when he retired, he would be a CSRS reemployed annuitiant. If he was CSRS Offset, he’d be CSRS Offset. In either case, he would have the option of electing to be covered by FERS.
