Abstract : Over the years, considerable debate has occurred over how retirement programs for federal employees compare with the programs available to other employees in the United States. The Chairmen of the former Senate Subcommittee on Post Office and Civil Service and the House Subcommittee on Civil Service asked GAO to compare the features and benefit levels of the federal government's two largest retirement programs for its civilian employees; the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) and the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) with those of private sector retirement programs.
