SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: RI 92-22, Annuity Supplement Earnings 
Report, is used each year to obtain the earned income of Federal 
Employees Retirement System (FERS) annuitants receiving an annuity 
supplement. The annuity supplement is paid to eligible FERS annuitants 
who are not retired on disability and are not yet age 62. The 
supplement approximates the portion of a full career Social Security 
benefit earned while under FERS and ends at age 62. Like Social 
Security benefits, the annuity supplement is subject to an earnings 
limitation.
