Continued from Part 8…

All disability retirement annuitants are eligible to earn up to 80% of their positions current salary in some other line of employment outside the federal government. As long as it is within their doctor’s current physical restrictions, they can get a job doing whatever they choose.

Remember Civil Service Retirement System employees are not eligible to draw Social Security benefits. The only exception is the Civil Service Offset employees. This was a very few number of hires that occurred right as the government was transitioning between the two retirement systems.

Civil Service Offset employees paid Social Security taxes and are therefore eligible for Social Security benefits, however, their retirement contributions and disbursements fall into the CSRS rules and regulations.
