March 28, 2012 -- This week on Your Turn, host Mike Causey is joined by Tammy Flanagan, senior benefits director at the National Institute of Transition Planning.

Flanagan "invented" the concept of the best-day-to-retire, and on today's show, she will discuss why some dates are better than others, and how to crunch your own numbers.

Flanagan also talks about the little-known but lucrative voluntary contributions retirement plan that is available only to workers under the CSRS program.

In the second half of the program, Senior Executives Association President Carol Bonosaro will talk about mobility among members of the Senior Executive Service.

A recent report from the Partnership for Public Service, found that 48 percent of SES members had never changed their positions after becoming an SES member.
