Survivor annuity


Q. I am eligible to retire from the Postal Service under CSRS with 37 years of service at age 57. My husband retired on disability from the Postal Service and took out the survivor annuity for me. When I retire and start receiving an annuity, if my husband should die, will I also receive the survivor benefit from my husband and my own retirement check?

A. Yes.
