Q. I retired in October 2005 under CSRS Offset at age 55, and I just turned 62 in April. Do I have to file for Social Security, call the Office of Personnel Management, call Social Security, or is everything taken care of automatically? My pay has not been adjusted other than a tax adjustment I requested. Are they overpaying me since I turned 62? I have just under 34 years and five months of service with about 16 years in CSRS Offset. What should I be doing, if anything at all?
A. The reduction in your CSRS Offset annuity should occur automatically, whether or not you apply for a Social Security benefit. If there is a delay in making that change, OPM will retroactively adjust your annuity to account for the overpayment.
