The Government Pension Offset is part of the Social Security Law that reduces spouse or survivor Social Security benefits for certain individuals who are also entitled to a Federal Government pension. If you retire from the Federal service under CSRS and are also eligible for Social Security benefits as a spouse, former spouse or survivor, your Social Security benefit will be reduced. It is reduced because you are receiving a pension from the Federal Government based on earnings that are not covered by Social Security. For every $3 you receive from your CSRS annuity, your Social Security spousal benefit is reduced by $2. For more information, see SSA's publication, Government Pension Offset at http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10007.html.
