Q. Could you tell me which law created CSRS Offset retirement? I’ve heard it was 5 USC 84, which created FERS. If that is the applicable law, could you indicate which chapter and verse pertains to Offset?
A. You’ll find what you’re looking for in 5 U.S. Code 8349 and in the Office of Personnel Management’s CSRS and FERS Handbook at www.opm.gov/retirement-services/publications-forms/csrsfers-handbook/c050.pdf. Just scroll to Section 50A3.1-4
