Means Test For FERS Annuity Supplement

Answer Question

I am retired law enforcement under FERS and age 57. I have been receiving short term disability from my place of employment since 4/19. Are these short term disability checks considered wages for the means test for 2019? Thank You.

Private answer

Chapter 51 of the CSRS FERS handbook says “A person who is employed after retiring may lose part or all of the retiree annuity supplement if the amount he or she earns exceeds the “exempt amount.” Your disability check is not considered employment.
