Q: I am a former CSRS employee who is receiving disability retirement from the government. I just turned 55. Will this change to regular retirement (I had the 30 year requirement). If so, what is the difference?
A: As a disability retiree under CSRS, you will continue to have to provide proof of your disability until age 60. At that point, you will be considered permanently disabled. Your disability annuity won’t be changed to a regular annuity.
