Q. My deceased wife was a FERS employee for 15 years before resigning.

She passed away four years ago. I rolled over her TSP into mine. (I am retired CSRS.) I did not claim her contribution to FERS. Will I receive any of her retirement annuity once she would have become eligible to retire?

A. No. However, you would be entitled to receive a refund of her retirement contributions if she did not take a refund of those contributions when she resigned.
