Changing jobs


Q. I am 47 and receive a CSRS monthly annuity. I retired from the Postal Service after 26 years. If I accept a position at the Veterans Affairs hospital, how will that affect my annuity?

A. The salary of your new position would be offset by the amount of your annuity. For example, if your annuity is $40,000 and the annual salary of your new position was $50,000, you’d receive a salary of $10,000.
