“I’m receiving my Postal CSRS retirement and will be applying for Social Security in a few years. I’m wondering if there is any legislation in Washington to reduce or limit CSRS retirees from being penalized by the Government Pension Offset provision.”
Legislation has been introduced every year to modify or eliminate the Government Pension Offset and Windfall Elimination Provision since they went into effect. To date they have gone nowhere.
