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.

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.
