Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

If I retire from the Government, can I still get lost earnings on make-up contributions I made when my agency fixed the retirement error and put me in FERS?

Yes. You can get lost earnings on the make-up contributions you already made to your TSP account, if you decide to stay in FERS. You cannot get lost earnings if you choose CSRS Offset coverage over FERS.
