September 30, 2013 -- This week on For Your Benefit , our hosts, Bob Leins and Tammy Flanagan, welcome Mike Causey for an animated discussion on the fiscal year, what 2013 brought us and what we might expect in 2014.

Topics they will cover include:

  • The looming Government Shutdown and how it might affect you.

  • Highlights and information of interest from the TSP's Monday, Sept. 23, meeting.

  • FEHB Premiums will rise between 3.7 percent and 4.4 percent next year. How will that affect the average federal employee who hasn't had a pay increase for three years? This rise in premium is lower than in the past; and OPM cites the competition created by the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) as responsible for keeping the increase to a minimum.

Phone lines will be open for your questions and comments during the last half of the show, call in to 202-465-3080.
