Q. I’m a CSRS retiree and am thinking about returning to civil service. I’m 63 years old and am uncertain how re-employment will affect my retirement and health benefits. Will I lose all of my retirement benefits? Will I have to relinquish my health benefit and select another health insurance coverage?
Q. I retired from the Air Force with 25 years of service and am collecting an active duty (Title 10) military pension. I also have a service-connected Veterans Affairs disability for time served in Iraq. Currently, I am working for the U.S. Postal Service and contributing toward a FERS retirement. Can I buy back my active duty time for my FERS retirement? If so, can collect two pensions: FERS and Title 10?
Q. I have been retired for two-and-a-half years. I am receiving the Special Retirement Supplement and just turned 61 years old in July. I understand that I can only earn so much a year before my SRS is effected. However, since this is my last year of SRS, can I earn as much as I want since after July 2019 it will be cut off, or will I have to pay monies back if I exceed the earning limits?
Q. I left federal service in 2006 with 22 years of service and was in FEHB at all times. If I can go back into federal service to regain eligibility for FEHB in retirement, what type of appointment need it be? And is there a minimum time of service before retiring from that reemployment at age 60 or older?
