Retirement calculation for part time


Q: I have a friend who is eligible for retirement but wants to continue to work part time for the federal government in the same area. How is their retirement calculated for part time work?

A: Tell your friend to go to and scroll down to Subchapter 55B. Although this information originally only applied to FERS employees, thanks to a change in the law, it now also applies to those covered by CSRS.
