CSRS Offset Retirement

Snippet of Article: "...Typically, CSRS Offset retirement applies to employees who had a break in service that exceeded 1 year and ended after 1983, and had 5 years of credit able civil ian service as of January 1, 1987. For example, if you left Federal service on May 15, 1992, with 18 years of CSRS-covered service and were rein stated under a career appoint­ment on November 1, 1993, you would have CSRS Offset cover age. An other major category of CSRS Offset employ­ees includes people who were hired before January 1, 1984, acquired CSRS interim cover age between 1984 and 1987, and had at least 5 years of credit­able civilian service by January 1, 1987..."
