Q. I have a service-connected disability and will be retiring soon under CSRS. Would my wife receive money from my service-connected disability and from my civil service with a survivor annuity of 75 percent?
A. If you elected a full survivor annuity for her, she would receive 55 percent of the amount of your annuity before it was reduced to provide for that annuity, increased by any subsequent cost-of-living adjustments that you received after you retired. She would also receive the proceeds of your Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance. Because this is a site dedicated to answering civilian benefit questions, I don’t know what benefits she would be entitled to based on your service connected disability. You’ll have to check with your former branch of service.
