Bookmark and Share

Q. I left my position before I was eligible for an annuity. I believe I will be eligible for deferred annuity when I reach age 62. However, if I die before age 62, is my spouse able to request a lump-sum payment and receive a refund of my retirement contributions? I am in CSRS.

A. Yes.
