Revising the definition of 'child for survivor beneAA purpose, to the Civil Service language Which, by inclueing students up to age 21, is more liberal than Foreign Service. A corresponding change WAS made in the section covering the beginning and ending dates of the child's annuity. c. Including requirement or 'idou's annuity to terminate von her remarriage. This change conforms to Civil Service requirements. a. Liberalizing the survivor annuity provision to conform to Civil Service by setting the annuity at 55 per cent (rather than 50 per cent) of the employee's annuity and by increasing the hese 'for the 2:> per cent reduction formula :ram ,21400 to -$3,600. (The employee's annuity is reduced by 2 per cent of this base and 10 per cent of the amount over it if he elects a survivor annnity.) e. Increasing the Agency service requirewent for voluntary retirement at age 5u with rs o service rum .ive to ten. (The five-year requirement was inserted by the House Sub-committee.) t. Complete revision of the involuntary retirement provision to base the distinction as to benarits on length_of service rather than 0,44. Previously, an immediate annuity was provided at G6-14 and over or an employee with at least ten years a:: Agency service Including at least live years of 'qualifying" service. A GS-14 not meeting these service requirements was to receive the bene its pro- vided for a GS-13. A G6-13 and below receivfa separation pay (one month's pay per year of service up to one year). In addition, he culc.: elect a refund of his contribution to the fund or, it he had five years of: service, a deferred annuity. There was a special provision for GS-12's and 13's who died before reaching age 60 and obtaining a deferred annuity to fl$ider such death a '-emoth in service. The proposed revision ot' this section provides an immediate annuity to an involuntary retiree who has twelve years of Agency service including seven year. of qualifying service. Those vho do Lt . these service requiresents would receive separation pay at the rate of two aonthe. pe.Y Per year of service up to two year.' pay. In addition, they may elect a refund of contributions or, if they have five years of service, a deferred annuity. There is no pro- vision to coastder Jeath before receipt of a deferred annuity to be a death in service. g. A new section has been added to place a limit of 400 on voluntary retirements or involuntary retirements uith immediate an- nuity daring the first five years under the Act. (Mandatory age retirements, disability retirements., deaths, and involuntary retire- ment.* without an immediate annuity waula not be counted against this total.)

In this review we also noted the desirability of naking one or tvo technical conforming changes which will be taken up after there is understanding of the probability of acceptance of the substantive ameed- ments to be discussed. The only point which has bothered Mr. Braswell significantly libieh has not been modified in the proposed amendyents is that of reemployment pay. tie questious the present (Foreign Service) provision which permits receipt 4 salary plus annuity up to the amount n:;. salary rate held at tine of rettrenemt.
