Q. I left government service in 1988 to move with a military spouse and did not rejoin. I have 11 years total service. I am 56 years old. How can I obtain the balance in my CSRS account, and does interest accrue on that account?
A. Go to www.opm.gov, click on Forms, download Standard Form 2802, Application for Refund of Retirement Deductions, fill it out, and send it to OPM. They will send you a refund of your contributions. Note: No interest is paid on refunded CSRS contributions.

She could also leave the money in and receive an annuity at age 62. I think she can write the Retirement Services Branch to find out how much is in the account.
