Under the proposal, all feds hired after this year would be treated like most: other American workers. They would-have to-pay7the full Social Se- curity tax of. 6.7' percent of salary. That'. amount would rise. in 1985 when the tax goes to 7 percent. But unlike. current federal -workers, who must put 7 percent of their gross sal- ary into the civil service retirement fund; the new hires would pay only 1.3 percent into the fund. Current. federal employes; . includ- ing'anyone hired through the end of this year, would continue to put 7 percent of their salary into the civil se. yice,retirement plan.. They do not pay, the full Social Security tax and .are required to pay only 1.3 percent for, Medicare coverage. ;Benefits due current employes and retirees would not be changed by this legislation. Federal agencies would, continue to make matching: payments of 1.3'. percent (for Medicare) and 7 percent (for, the civil service retirement fund) for current workers. . ;: -For. new workers-the government estimates 385,000. will, he hired in 1984' and 1985 agencies. would match their full Social Security con- tributions. Agencies also would put 7 percent of salary. into the civil ser-' vice retirement fund for each of the new hires. ' . . To make up for the shortfall, which would result from reduced re- .tirement contributions, the Treasury .would make direct payments-equal to 7 percent of salary to the federal retirement fund. The dual system of civil service. retirement -and Social- Security cov- erage for new feds would be in effect. until January 1986 or until Congress comes up with a supplemental pro- gram for new workers and those hired in the future. Any new plan setup would ,proh 'ably be. modeled after plans in the private sector, plans, that are usually..; not as generous as the civil service ;retirement program. Benefits under the.newplan, like those in most pri= vate companies; would be designed to dovetail with Social Security. Many: federal officials anticipate that many people will rush to join,. the 'government before the end of this year to he eligible to participate in the ; current federal retirement program. The Reagan administration earlier this year proposed to change the fed- eral. retirement system. It wanted to' ;make feds work an extra 10 years (to. . age 65) for full- benefits`in crease the, amount of money employ es kick into' the retirement program.,` But opposition to. the plan was so great-it also would' have cut ben efits for members of Congress-that the proposal was-shelved: The retirement'. "reforms" proba- bly will come back next year but, be- cause it is an election year, -chances are they will not go anywhere. Elizabeth A.

Under election (B), the individual participates fully in the ap- propriate covered retirement system and pays the social security tax plus a full retirement contribution. An election may be made at any time. If no election is made, the individual will continue not to participate in a covered retirement system, will not be subject to the other provisions of the conference agreement, and will be cov- ered by social security. The conference agreement provides that an election must be sub mitted to the official by whom the electing individual is paid, and that if an individual elects to terminate participation in a covered retirement system, the individual is entitled-to receive a refund of contributions in accordance with the applicable provisions of law concerning the particular covered retirement system. The final modifications relate to the deficiency contribution. This contribution represents the amount not paid by employees because 'f the reduction of their retirement contributions to 1.3 percent. .ic Senate amendment provides that an amount equal to the defi- ciency shall be paid to the covered retirement systems by the Treasury of the United States and that those payments shall be amortized over 30 years. The conference agreement provides the deficiency payments shall be made at the close of fiscal years 1984, 1955, and 198G rather than amortized over 30 years. The conferees believe the amounts involved are not significant enough to warrant the administrative attention which amortization would require. In addition, the conference agreement provides the deficiency contri- bution shall include, interest that the retirement contributions would have earned had they been made by employees during the fiscal years involved. This ensures that the covered retirement sys- tems' funds will, in fact, be made whole. WILLIAM D. FORD, Mo UDALL, MARY ROSE OAKAR, GENE TAYLOR, BENJAMIN A. GILMAN, Managers on the Part of the House.
