Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

If an employee elected FERS coverage, or was correctly covered automatically under FERS, can the individual ever have CSRS or CSRS Offset coverage again?

No. Once an employee is correctly placed under FERS (except those employees who were erroneously put in CSRS/Offset and were already corrected to FERS), the individual will always have FERS coverage in the future, unless excluded from retirement coverage because of the nature of the appointment.
