Under P.L. 86-415, employment as a PHS Reserve officer after 12/31/56 and before 7/1/60
cannot be used to figure insured status or to compute the PIA for benefits after June
1960 unless all Civil Service annuity rights based on the same service are waived.
The waiver must be filed by the officer if he is alive or by his widow and by or on
behalf of all his children after his death, and must renounce all future rights under
the Civil Service Retirement Act based in this period. The lump-sum death payment
and RSDI benefits for months before 7/60 are not affected by P.L. 86-415. These benefits
may be based on all covered employment including the PHS Reserve officers service
for 1/1/57 - 6/30/60.
