Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I am receiving Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) offset benefits. What will happen to my benefit when I become eligible for Social Security?

If at age 62 you are eligible for Social Security, we will recompute your retirement benefit to "offset" any part of your Social Security benefit that is based on your years of Federal service under the offset plan.
