Browsing: lateral employment move

Q. I am in an 0802 series position and am considering a lateral move to another government agency (1670 series). How, if at all, would this affect my CSRS plan? And would I get a step increase if I made the change? A. Moving to another agency in another series would not affect your retirement benefits. Whether you would receive a step increase is something you’ll have to discuss with your new agency.
