This bill — known as the EPIC Act — would exclude members of Congress (except the vice president) from further coverage the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees’ Retirement System (FERS) through which they’re currently entitled to receive a pension. It would prohibit future contributions or deductions from a member’s pay to be deposited into the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund, although benefits accrued up until the date of enactment would still be paid out. Lawmakers

Be considered as nullifying, modifying, or otherwise affecting any right, entitlement, or benefit under CSRS or FERS for any member covering any period before the bill’s enactment.
