I recently retired with 22 yrs 4 mos of Federal service. I worked under CSRS for 4 yrs in the 70’s and retired. I redeposited my lump sum retirement when I returned to the Federal Govt in 2003. Since I had less than 5 yrs of CSRS, my FERS annuity did not have a CSRS component. Will I still be subject to the Windfall Elimination Provision since I didn’t pay social sec. taxes for 4 yrs under CSRS?

Right Elaine, Bebol probably resigned rather than retired after 4 years of service in the 1970s. Is there any federal agency that allows employees to retire after 4 years of service before they are even 40 years old? When a member of any of the military services separates at a young age they don’t retire and collect a pension. Either there is some special case we haven’t thought of or Bebol misused the word ”retired”.
I did misuse the word retirement. I actually resigned due to motherhood. Thank you both for catching my error. I certainly don't want to mislead anyone on retirement policies.
