Q. I retired in March 2015 and presently receive a civil service annuity and Social Security. Can I return to the federal government and keep my annuity and Social Security check? I will be 67 years of age in April.
Q. I have worked since I was 14. I am now just about to turn 50. I have been a hard worker during my life and my body just cannot take it anymore. I have made between $30 and $110,000 a year. My wife works and makes decent money. What are my options? I have not worked for the last two years.
Q. Can you explain the Windfall Elimination Provision as it pertains to those of us that are CSRS? I have heard many different answers, one of which said they can’t fully offset your Social Security. I have 40 quarters from before I became a civil service employee, and in the early years I worked a part-time job. I am 3½ years away from hitting 40 years now. Will I get any Social Security? Can my husband (who is younger than me) draw against my Social Security until he hits his magic age?
Q. Can you explain what would happen to my pension as a reinstated employee? I retired in 2011 from the sales department in the U.S. Postal Service. I took a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority. I was 53, now I’m 59. I would like to go back to my job (I just saw the posting). I have been getting the supplement since age 56. I get $27,348 with my pension and supplement. I left at the pay scale of $68,000 — the same as the job is offering. Would I still get a pension in my direct deposit? Will I accrue a new pension?…
Q. I will be able to retire on Dec. 19, 2018, at 57 years old, so I will have the time and the age, but I will probably retire at the end of the month on the last full pay period in December. How do I calculate the FERS special retirement supplement between 2018 (age 57) and the time I turn 62 years of age?
