Q. I am a retired federal employee and receive a $5,300 monthly CSRS annuity. I do not qualify for Social Security. My wife gets $600 a month in SS benefits that she earned working. If I die, will her survivor benefit of $3,200 a month be reduced by the $600 a month she receives in SS?
A. No, She’ll receive her earned Social Security benefit and her CSRS survivor annuity, with no reduction in either.
