CSRS annuity reduction upon retirement


Q. I am a federal employee under CSRS and am considering retiring. I have 37 years of service and will be 59 this year. My husband was also CSRS, retired and passed away in 2000. I receive a survivor annuity from him under CSRS. Will my annuity from my husband decrease if I retire?

A. No. You’ll be able to receive both without a reduction in either.
