Reemployed Annuitants

Generally speaking, the treatment of a retiree's annuity and pay upon reemployment in the Federal Government depends upon whether he or she retired on the basis of a regular, involuntary, or disability retirement. Potential benefits that may be earned as a result of the reemployment service depend primarily on the length of such service.

Some details on Reemployed Annuitants may be found in a PDF file at OPM's Web Site by clicking here.

If you have questions regarding how this can affect you, feel free to post the quesitons here. Or perhaps you have been through this process before and can offer some helpful suggestions...please share.

If you are not exemted from the restrictions for reemployed annuitants, your pension will be reduced by the amount of your salary.  In short, you would be working for nothing.  If you are exempted, you would receive both your pension and your salary.  No TSP in that case.
Find out the rules from the TSA before you waste your time.

restonham: Sorry but its the other way around.  It is not your annuity that is reduced by the amount of your pay but your pay that is reduced by the amount of your annuity if you are not exempted from the restrictions placed on RAs.buckeyeguy20102013-12-08 05:56:09

Buckeyeguy is absolutely correct. One's retirement annuity remains the same, but the salary you would "normally" receive for the job performed, is reduced by the annuity amount. If the rehire annuitant position is for a limited, special project, or maybe a unique study where the rehire is the subject matter expert that is one thing.  The way I look at it, if you really need to work as a rehired annuitant for the extra pay, you shouldn't have retired in the first place. Life is too short to spend it all working. Save some time for enjoyment as well!

The idea is to find a good paying job; otherwise when the annuity is offset from your new paycheck, you could be working for little or nothing. Some DOD positions allow you to receive both the annuity and paycheck...if you can get one. I have been trying to get one of these...otherwise I'm not sure it's worth it as I would have to most likely move to someplace on the East Coast and I am in Asia and Seattle.
