January 2, 2012 -- For FERS employees thinking about when to retire, 2013 is a very special year.

Picking the best date could save them thousands of dollars in taxes, and boost the value of their unused annual leave.

So what is the best date (or dates) to retire?

Short answer: It depends. But some are much better than others.

That's one of the subjects of today's special combined "Your Turn"/"For Your Benefit" radio show. FYB hosts Bob Leins and Tammy Flanagan join host Mike Causey to talk about 2012, the new year and some very important changes for federal workers and retirees.
