Q. I am a CSRS Offset employee and I think I will be subject to the Windfall Elimination Provision. I am currently receiving $845 a month Social Security (reduced for age as I am 63) and I think when the WEP is applied I will get $380. When my CSRS pension is offset for my Social Security, will the offset be calculated using $845, my original benefit, or $380, the amount that I am actually receiving?
A. The offset to your CSRS annuity will be based on the Social Security benefit you earned while covered by CSRS Offset.
