Continuation of annuity


Q. I am doing a mortgage loan for a retired post office worker. My underwriter wants proof of continuance for three years. Where might I find that information?

A. You are entitled to an annuity as provided under 5 United States Code Chapter 83. Your annuity will continue until you die, as provided in 5 USC 8345(c), which says, “The annuity of a retired employee…terminates on the day death or other terminating event provided by this subchapter occurs.”
