Online Chat: Phased Retirement

Wednesday - 9/10/2014, 11:00am EDT

Federal News Radio experts answered your questions about the new final rule on phased retirement during an online chat today. Phased retirement is a new option which allows eligible employees to work part-time while drawing on part of their earned retirement benefits. Phased retirees must also spend at least 20 percent of their time mentoring other employees.
