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 the reemployed annuitant works full time for at least five years, the annuitant may then choose either a supplemental annuity or a re-computed annuity".

I work for the FAA, and expect that early retirement incentives will be offered soon.

As a rehired annuitant with 4 years of service since being rehired, will an "early retirement" grant me

any years towards the 5 year rule to allow me to have my annuity "re-computed" now, rather than 

having to wait another year?

I was wondering if you ever go an aswer to your question?  I'm in the same boat but with a different agency and I can't get any answers.

My agency also is offering early retirement,  because of budget considerations. I'm a reemployed annuitant and therefore serve at the will of the appointing authority -- meaning they can terminate me at any time without cause.  It seems counter-intuitive that any type of incentive would be offered to get a reemployed annuitant to retire again.  If they want to get us off the agency payroll, they can do so "at will".

Good questions. Wish there were some answers. I am coming up on 3 yrs back as a RA also. Does anyone know the formula for the supplemental annuity? With the budget crunch, are we elegible for VERA? If so, what is the criteria? Thanks for the info folks.

Thanks: 2 times
Was thanked: 3 time(s) in 3 post(s)
I know my response is old, but I thought if a rehired annuitant worked for at least 2 years, they could get a supplemental pension annuity. It seems no one has any answers on the calculation. If I get hired under an RA...I don't plan to work 5 years, but only 2 years.

2 years have passed since my last post below. I did find out we (RA's) are not eligible for VERA. However, my 5 years back is almost up and here's my story:

First retirement was a FERS DSR (Discontinued Service Retirement) on 1/15/2010.
Age 52 with 24yrs and 10 mo Federal Service.
1st Interim check on 1 Feb 2010 and finalized on 8/15/2010.

Returned to work on 3/28/2010 for the same agency, same job and same pay grade.
Yes, paycheck is reduced by amount of annuity.
This time as a civilian vice a Military Technician.
I have submitted my paperwork to retire this coming May 30th, 2015.
I will have 30 yrs 9 days Federal Service plus 7 mo sick leave added on.
During the past 5 years I have been able to buy back several short periods of Military duty that I was unable to get done the first time around.
My estimated FERS annuity will be about $500 more per month than I am currently receiving.
I should be able to collect the FERS supplement this time around.

I am both excited and nervous about retiring again. I am ready this time and have lots of plans. I sure hope the processing through ABC-C to DFAS to OPM goes smooth.
