CSRS is only better than FERS because it's a no-brainer. FERS requires thinking. Aggressive FERS investors can beat CSRS returns, but because the amounts are voluntary, too many don't do it.

2yrstogo /m5727 - if 500,000 in TSP is worth $1545 a month, then my CSRS it is worth about a million three. How much of your pay did you put in to have 400K?

paybac.....I listened to mr csrs for 17 yrs bragging about how bad my retirement is and how we (FERS) got screwed. Everyday all day long,lunch, breaks etc. I will be happy if I retire with 1 dollar more than Mr CSRS. MR CSRS has been very quiet the last few days.
PabaK... I bet you are a CSRS employee.

2yrstogo /m5722 - define better. If I put in 7% of my pay to get x dollars and you put in 10% of your pay to get the same amount, is that better? Granted, the sum of FERS + TSP + SS may be more than just CSRS, but it also cost a lot more, too. Don't forget, there are CSRS people with $$ in TSP.

If I die before my spouse, she gets about half my retirement and social security and will also have 4 hundred thousand in the thrift plan. I am a FERS employee. My co-workers spouse gets about half his retirement (He is CSRS) and zero thrift. My children will get my thrift. His retirement dies when both he and spouse are gone. I still think FERS is better than CSRS.

If you get to $500,000 in your Thrift Plan you should Total about $$1545 per month. If you did any investing on your own so you didn't put all your eggs in one basket you would have that income as well. Add in $1170 from P.O for 28 years service[4 years Air Force] CSRS will come out ahead. Also will you make 40 years like the CSRS?

Yeah but it won't matter much. They'll work till the day excessing begins, and come back after all the regulars are gone. PO does not have to bring regulars back before hiring or re-hiring PSE/MHA.

Is it true that California and Hawaii must get rid of all the non-career people first,before they can get rid of the fulltime people?

2YRS2GO /m5717 - It is hard to compare. He will get twice as much of an annuity than you. It seems to me that FERS people have to put more into the system than CSRS to get x amount of dollars. Or, think of it this way: is it likely that the federal government in the 1980s came up with a new system that would give you MORE money? I would think not.

I am FERS employee. My co-worker is CSRS. He claims CSRS is better than FERS. I have over 4 hundred thousand dollars in my Thrift Plan. He has Zero. I think I have done better. Am I wrong that FERS is a better retirement?
