Return to post office


Q: I was employed by the Postal Service from 1956 to 1968. In 1986, I was re-employed by the postal service. Am I included in the CSRS Offset? I wonder because I was re-employed after 1983, when anyone hired then went into FERS.

A: Because you had at least five years of CSRS service when you were re-employed by the federal government, you were automatically placed in CSRS Offset.
