Being single has its advantages. Especially when you are shopping for a health plan or a new doctor, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So, just how good is the single life?
You may be the healthiest person in the IRS or the most organic couple with the EPA, but that doesn't let you off the hook when it comes time to hunt for a health plan, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Crushing medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy. But you can avoid that by choosing one of the many federal health plans, and picking one that limits your maximum out-of-pocket costs, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Veterans Day is one of those odd holidays which, for many people, has almost lost its meaning. Lots of people are actually working today and for many, whether its a holiday or just another workday for them, the fact that it is not a Monday holiday is a mystery. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says the key to the mystery is the numbers 11/11/11.
If Charles Dickens had written about the government's bonus program he might have called his novel "Bleak House," or maybe "Not So Great Expectations," Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Do you have a colleague who is always so upbeat, so happy that it gets on your nerves? If so, there is a sure-fire way to make him or her lose that grin, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Did you bail out of the stock market prior to or during the shutdown? If so, have you looked at the TSP numbers lately? If not, maybe you should, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Did the 16-day-for-some furlough ruin your year or was it a welcome suprise vacation? It is getting mixed reviews from feds who had to work and those who were forced -- then paid -- to stay home, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
It's almost the end of a very interesting year, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. Thousands of federal workers were furloughed without pay for a few days, then forced to take 16 days off without pay. Meanwhile, a pay raise appears to have managed to sneak by Congress. So, are these really the good old days?
Retirees will get a 1.5 percent cost-of-living adjustment next January, and white-collar feds are looking at a 1 percent raise. Not much but it could have been a lot worse, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
If it feels good, it must be bad. However if you ignore it, you may be on the right track, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So are we talking about your TSP account or your love life?
If you are a federal worker, did you raid your retirement fund, or sell low and buy high during the government shutdown? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wants to know: Was it prudent or panic behavior to flee the stock market before and during the shutdown?
For many feds, the shutdown seemed like a bad dream. Among its unintended consequences: It created two classes of federal workers in the same office -- the excepted vs. the expendables, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So are those forced to work due a little something extra?
When it comes to investing and saving for retirement, federal workers are at the head of the class. TSP average balances are fast-approaching the 6-figure mark.
You work for Uncle Sam. You are young, healthy and immortal. Who needs health insurance? Well, you may be in for a surprise, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Key politicians from both parties have said never again will there be a government shutdown like the farce of 2013, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey reports. So if it is safe to write the shutdown's obituary, where would you start?
Top politicians have vowed there will be no more shutdowns. But they've said that before, including as recently as this month, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So what can you do if there's a repeat performance?
Whatever the political purpose of the shutdown, it apparently didn't work. It amounted to a 16-day paid vacation for a lot of federal workers and lost income for lots of people, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So what did you do?
Much of the shutdown news focused on its impact on Washington and shuttered national parks. But many smaller communities have taken a deeper, more permanent hit, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
During the shutdown, traffic in the Washington area remained awful, alcohol sales were up and lots of people jumped into online dating, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So how was it where you live and work? Was it a financial nightmare or a surprise paid vacation?
