Survivor annuity


Q. I’ve been retired for four years and selected a full CSRS survivor annuity for my spouse. She is applying for her retirement this year from the state of California. Because her retirement is from another government agency pension plan, will that have any impact on the amount of CSRS survivor annuity she may receive upon my death?

A. No.
