My CSRS offset at age 62 will be approximately $1,296/per month. If I elect a monthly survivor annuity and my husband outlives me, will the $1,296 be deducted from his monthly annuity?

The answer depends on whether your spouse would be eligible for a Social Security survivor benefit from your work record…if not, then they would get the entire CSRS calculated survivor benefit. If they become entitled to Social Security survivor benefits, the CSRS survivor annuity is reduced (offset) by the amount of the survivor’s Social Security benefit attributable to the period the deceased annuitant was under CSRS Offset. This can be found at the following link, page 8: https://www.opm.gov/retirement-services/publications-forms/csrsfers-handbook/c071.pdf
