Q: I retired from government at 57 in August 2009 under CSRS with 30 years of service/DoD Excepted Service. Due to the economy, I would like to go back to “regular/full time” government employment. Can I re-apply for government jobs (knowing I will give up my annuity) for a full-time GS position and salary?
A: There is no bar to you becoming a re-employed annuitant. However, you won’t have to give up your annuity; instead the salary of your new position will be reduced by the amount of your annuity.
