Some entities may pay a pension based on both government employment and private employment.
For pensions based on a combination of federal, state, or local government employment
and private employment (i.e., non-government employment), GPO applies only to the
portion of the pension based on government employment.
Request verification from the employer or pension-paying agency showing the amount
of the pension based on only the government employment.
EXAMPLE: A worker receives a pension for non-covered service in a public school (government
employment) and a private school (non-government employment). In this case, GPO applies
only to the portion of the pension based on the government employment.
