VERA, annuity and private-sector work


Q. I was offered and accepted a Voluntary Early Retirement Authority payment from the Post Office last month under CSRS. If I return to work in the private sector, will it affect my CSRS pension or the VERA I received?

A. Working in the private sector will affect neither your CSRS annuity nor the VERA payment you received.
