Abstract/Citation: Establishes a new retirement and disability plan which is co-ordinated with the Social Security Act (LS 1939 - USA 2), as amended, for Federal employees, postal employees and Members of Congress. The Act is also designed to enhance the portability of retirement assets earned as a Federal employee and to provide those employees with options for retirement planning. It extends protection from disability to additional Federal employees and increases protection for those covered. Title I of the Act (new Chapter 84 of Title 5 of the U.S. Code) contains provisions regarding the basic annuity and thrift savings plan, survivor annuities, disability benefit and the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Management System. It also includes general and administrative provisions (e.g. cost-of-living adjustments). Titles II to VII of the Act contain other amendments in relation to, inter alia, the Civil Service Retirement System and appropriations.
