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.

Is it possible to work as a federal seasonal employee (1040 hours or less per year) and still receive FERS disability annuity? Alternatively would the annuity be reduced or will you be found recovered?

You might want to ask this in the DR forum. That being said, if you are currently on Disability Retirement, unless you come in under a special provision, your salary will be reduced by the amount of your annuity. You could wind up working for free. I also don't see how they could let you work if you are already on a Disability Retirement.

The rule is that you may earn up to 80% of the current rate of basic pay of the position you retired from, in any calendar year. If you're re-employed in Federal service in a position equivalent to what you held at retirement, your FERS disability annuity will stop.

It's not necessarily a matter of number of hours worked, though it's best not to work full time since OPM will send a form at the end of the year asking if you worked. It's the 80% threshold that you must stay under. If you go above it, they will find you recovered and terminate your benefits until the first of the year after you no longer exceed the 80% earnings limit.constance2014-03-31 19:40:04
