Q. I am a federal retiree returning to work. I have been offered a term position not to exceed thirteen months. Would accepting this position reduce or stop my present annuity?
A. Unless you are hired under a special provision of law that allows you to receive both your annuity and the salary of your new position, your salary would be reduced by the amount of your annuity. Before you accept the position, you’ll need to find out how your benefits will be treated.
