Re-employment and retirement earnings


Q. I retired under CSRS on April 30. What are the rules on my re-entering the federal workforce part time? I would like to keep earning my full retirement.

A. Unless you were hired into one of those rare positions that allowed you to receive your annuity and the full salary of your new position, your salary would be offset by the amount of your annuity. If that was the case, being hired as a part-time worker could reduce your salary to a handful of small change.
