Sequestration and its impact on you

February 20, 2013 — This week on “Your Turn”, we answer some of your questions and concerns about what sequestration means to you, your job and your benefits.

Questions such as:

  • Can you apply for unemployment?
  • What about the impact on your Thrift Savings Plan account?
  • Will being furloughed have an impact on your eventual retirement benefits?
  • What are your rights and responsibilities during a time of furloughs?

Washington attorney John Mahoney talks about your rights when in furlough status.

Online Chat: DJ Kachman, the Veterans Affairs Department’s director of mobile and security technology transformation lead, on April 10, at 1 p.m.

In the second half of the show, Federal Times writers Stephen Losey and Sean Reilly talk about the pay freeze, pension liability, a new crackdown on poor performers, and, of course, sequestration.
