Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

My qualifying retirement coverage error started when I should have been placed in FERS automatically on 1/1/87, but my agency erroneously put me in CSRS because I had some past service. If I elect FERS, will I get a CSRS component in my FERS annuity for the service before the error?

No. Employees who should have been automatically placed in FERS do not have a CSRS component in their future FERS annuity. All service must be treated as FERS service in this circumstance.
