Who Should Use this Application? You should use this application if you are covered by the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and you want to pay a deposit or a redeposit for civilian service. You should not use this application if you are covered by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). What You Should Know About Deposit for Civilian Service Under CSRS Deposit is a payment to the retirement fund to cover a period of civilian service during which no retirement deductions were withheld from your salary (also called "nondeduction" service). The amount of your deposit will be the percentage of your basic salary shown below, plus interest. You do not have to make a deposit if you do not wish to do so. However, if you do not make the deposit — • For nondeduction service performed before October 1, 1982, you will receive credit toward your retirement annuity. Your annuity will be permanently reduced by 10% of the amount due as a deposit. For example, if a deposit of $600 is required and it is not paid, the annuity is permanently reduced by $60 a year (or $5 a month). On the other hand, if a deposit of $600 is made, it will increase the annuity by $60 a year. • For nondeduction service performed on or after October 1, 1982, you will receive no credit in the computation of your annuity. The period of service will be creditable for title and average salary purposes whether or not a deposit is made.

What You Should Know About CSRS Redeposit of service covered by the refund. If you do not pay the redeposit for this service, your annuity will be permanently, actuarially reduced because the redeposit is not paid. The amount of the reduction will be based on factors which will be divided into the amount of redeposit and interest you owe at retirement. Redeposit is a payment to the retirement fund to cover a period of service for which retirement reductions were withheld from your salary and later refunded to you. You do not have to make a redeposit if you do not wish to do so. However, if you do not make the redeposit — • • For service which ended on or after October 1, 1990, you will receive no credit in the computation of your annuity for the period of service covered by the refund. This usually results in a reduction in the amount of your annuity, or, in the event of death, your eligible widow's (or widower's) annuity. The period of service will be creditable for title and average salary purposes whether or not a redeposit is made. For service which ended before October 1, 1990, and your annuity commences on or after December 2, 1990, you will receive credit in your annuity computation for the period • If you retire on disability, you will not receive credit for service with unpaid redeposits. This means that should you retire because of a disability, you could find that you must pay for the service to receive credit for it and that the accrual of interest has increased the amount you must pay. The amount of redeposit will be the sum of the refund plus interest from the date the refund was paid to the date of redeposit (or commencing date of annuity, whichever is earlier). American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Standard Form 2803 Revised July 2006 How Interest Is Computed on Deposits How Interest Is Computed on Redeposits Interest is computed on the deposit from the midpoint of each period of nondeduction service. Interest is computed on the redeposit from the date the refund was paid. • • Interest for nondeduction service performed before October 1, 1982, accrues daily and is charged at the following rates, compounded annually: • 4 percent through December 31, 1947; and • 3 percent from 1948 through the date the deposit is made or to the commencing date of annuity, whichever is earlier. • Interest for nondeduction service performed on or after October 1, 1982, accrues annually, is compounded annually on December 31 of each year, and is charged at the following rates: • At a variable rate determined annually by the Department of Treasury beginning January 1, 1985. The variable interest rate for any year equals the overall average yield to the fund from retirement securities during the preceding fiscal year. 3 percent from 1948 through the date the redeposit is made, or to the commencing date of annuity, whichever is earlier. Additional interest does not accrue if full payment is made within 30 days after the billing statement is issued. • If the refund was based on an application received by the employing agency or OPM after September 30, 1982, interest is charged beginning on the date the refund was paid, at the following rates, compounded annually: 3 percent through December 31, 1984; and • 4 percent through December 31, 1947; and • Additional interest does not accrue if payment is made in full within 30 days after the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issues the billing statement. • If the refund was based on an application received by the employing agency or OPM before October 1, 1982, interest on the redeposit accrues daily beginning on the date the refund was paid and is charged at the following rates, compounded annually: • No interest is charged for a year when payment in full is received by December 31 of that year. 3 percent through December 31, 1984; and • A variable rate determined by the Department of Treasury beginning January 1, 1985. The variable rate for any year equals the overall average yield to the fund from retirement securities during the preceding fiscal year. For post-September 30, 1982, refunds, interest is not charged for a year when payment in full is received by December 31 of that year. Procedures Governing Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) Deposit And Redeposit Deposits and redeposits can be made by employees now serving under the CSRS, by separated employees who are entitled (or would be entitled after paying for service) to an annuity, or by eligible widows, widowers, or former spouses of deceased employees. An applicant for retirement is automatically given an opportunity to make the deposit for nondeduction service performed on or after October 1, 1982, and any redeposit when the application for retirement is processed. An applicant for retirement must specifically request an opportunity to make a deposit for nondeduction service performed before October 1, 1982. An employee should not file an application to make deposit or redeposit if he or she contemplates retirement within six months.
