Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wants to know: Do you think you could make more money, or be more supportive of causes to endorse, if Uncle Sam would broaden your investment options?
Washington got its first big (for us) snowfall this week and, again, it turned once real men into mice, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So why does this happen year after year?
Every time there is a big snowstorm, top government officials are haunted by a 32-year-old nightmare, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
Just because today is a holiday doesn't mean Uncle Sam has shut down. Far from it, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. Lots of people are in today either because they have to be (as in they are essential) or they want to be (as in dedicated). Either way, have a good day...
It's been a rough winter so far in much of the country, with the worst yet to come. So how do you prep for ice and snow? In D.C., people stock up on milk, white bread and toilet paper, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. In colder climates, like Buffalo, they go for a B & B: beer and birth control devices.
Lots of people inside government are excited about the pending self-plus-one health plan option, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. It will cost more than self-only, but less than the standard family plan. So who are the winners and losers?
If other-world aliens landed next to your building and said "take me to your leader," would you head for Washington, your state capital or your boss on the top floor? Also, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wants to know: how did the government once manage to slash the number of managers almost overnight?
Thanks to some surgical budget-cutting by Congress and the White House, Uncle Sam now has a three-tiered retirement plan: First-, second- and third-class where the service is the same but the price tag is higher for some than others.
Thanks to a portion of the media and many politicians, a lot of federal and postal workers have a low opinion of themselves. But when you crunch the numbers, feds are significant players in the stock market and in the net worth department, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. Crunch your own numbers.
Want to lose weight, pack on muscle and become more tech savvy? Uncle Sam has this magic plan in the works, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. When approved, it will benefit young and old alike.
It's been so cold this week that Washington, D.C. has -- temporarily -- lost its title as Wimp City USA. Places like Chicago, Minneapolis and Boston, tough towns, also surrendered to the frigid arctic weather blast, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So how cold was it?
If you are a Thrift Savings Plan investor in any of the stock funds, give yourself a pat on the back ... and purse or wallet, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. Because everything is gold, except gold itself....
Is 2014 shaping up to be the year you get your first promotion in a long time? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says you should check out what could be a retirement surge in February.
Hope you had a good holiday season and are ready for whatever 2014 brings, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. It's hardly likely to be worse than 2013, unless of course it is. Keep your New Year's resolutions handy. This time for sure...
In the fifth guest column in a series of five, a long-time Federal Report reader shares his take on why it's important for young feds to start long-term planning early in their careers.
One of the toughest, most important decisions, any worker ever makes is when to call it quits. Even people who are sick, tired or hate their jobs find it difficult to let go. Will it work financially, and emotionally? What happens next? Today's guest column is No. 3 in our five-part series. These are from real people, some like you maybe, who have been there-done-that-got-the-T-shirt. Today's guest columnist, Connie Hendryx, spent a long (mostly happy) time with Uncle Sam. She advises people how to prep for retirement.
The 2014 white-collar pay raise is not for everybody. Feds at the top of their grades in some cities won't be getting anything at all, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
When deciding to retire there is one day, but lots of different dates, that is best for you, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. How do you figure out the difference?
In the third guest column in a series of five, a Mike Causey Federal Report reader offers her take on what happens after you age out of the "prime demographic."
