Retirement Services conducts various surveys throughout the year. These surveys are sent to a particular sector of the annuitant population.
One of these surveys, the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) Annuity Supplement Survey was recently mailed to all FERS non-disability annuitants under age 62 receiving an annuity supplement. These individuals are receiving a supplemental payment in addition to their FERS annuity benefit.
Continued receipt of the annuity supplement is subject to an earnings test every year and can be affected by wages earned by the annuitant after retirement. Retirement Services surveys these annuitants every year while they are in receipt of the annuity supplement to ask for reported earnings. The annuitant must complete the form; sign, date and include a daytime telephone number. If you are a FERS annuitant and receive one of these surveys, please complete it and return it to Retirement Services as soon as possible.
Any questions should be directed to Retirement Benefits Branch at 202-606-0249.
The United States Postal Service recently announced that it will immediately suspend payment of the employer portion of the contributions for all Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) retirements. The Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) was not included in the announcement and will not be affected. The situation is still developing and we will continue to update the OPM website as information becomes available.
Current USPS retirees and employees who retired before June 3, 2011, will not be impacted by this announcement and there will be no negative impact on future postal employees’ retirement. While the matter is under consideration, it is our hope that the issue will be resolved as quickly as the law allows.
OPM has issued a statement regarding this issue which can be found on our web-site. The link to the statement is: http://www.opm.gov/news/statement-by-us-office-of-personnel-management-on-postal-services-decision-to-suspend-fers-annuity-contributions,1674.aspx
