Switching back to CSRS


Q. I switched to FERS from CSRS. Do you know of anyone who has been permitted to return to CSRS from FERS? At first, CSRS folks were not allowed the Thrift Savings Plan option, and later they were. I think I would have opted to stay with CSRS had I known that. Is there any way to go back?

A. No, there isn’t. It’s a one-way street.
