RETIRE (Processing Retirement Documents)

Prior to 1984, most Federal employees in career appointments were covered by the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). The Social Security Amendments of 1983 required that newly-hired Federal employees become covered by Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI), for which deductions were withheld.
