Phased retirement soon to be an option for feds

By Andrew Mitchell
Federal News Radio

Federal employees will soon have the option of a “phased retirement,” which will allow them to work part-time and also collect a portion of their retirement benefits.

The provision for this was part of the highway bill, signed into law by President Obama on July 6.

Read the latest news about the incoming administration on our Tracking the Transition page.

Although OPM has yet to establish a date when this option will become available to federal employees, it was discussed at length on the July 23 edition of For your Benefit.


Other topics covered by co-hosts Bob Leins and Tammy Flanagan included the Roth TSP.

For YourBenefit is heard live Mondays at 10 a.m. on Federal News Radio.
