FFCRA WITHOLDINGS TO BE REFUNDED

08/27/20

If you took leave under the Family First Coronavirus Response Act, after April 1, 2020, any deductions for TSP or FERS/CSRS retirement will be refunded to you.  The USPS has been informed that FFCRA leave was not subject to retirement withholding.  These monies will be refunded to you in your paycheck on October 02, 2020.  The refund of these monies will not impact your creditable service time towards retirement eligibility.

If you wish to leave this money in TSP and CSRS/FERS, you will have to change your leave from FFCRA to a different leave type.  Contact your supervisor to request an adjustment of your FFCRA leave changing it over to your own annual or sick leave.

This is optional.  If you do not want to use your own leave to cover your FFRCA absence you need do nothing and the retirement withholdings will be refunded to you.
