Legislative branch vs. executive branch


Q. I am covered by CSRS and I’ve worked under the legislative branch for 16 years and the executive branch for 12 years. How will my retirement annuity be affected by working under the different branches? I am being offered an early out. I see mentioned the enhanced formula will be used for the legislative branch service but do not know what that is.

A. Your service as an employee of the legislative branch will be calculated as follows: 2.5 percent x your high-3 x your years and full months of legislative branch service. Your executive branch service will be computed using the CSRS formula.
