Retirement backlog grows slightly in July

For the third month in a row, the Office of Personnel Management failed to meet its monthly goal for processing retirement claims. OPM's backlog now sits at 25,601 claims, up slightly from June. OPM blames its reduced processing power on the automatic, across-the-board budget cuts known as sequestration. To comply with the budget shortfalls, OPM was forced to suspend overtime for its employees in its Retirement Services division starting April 28.

Union wants rewrite of phased-retirement rules

The National Treasury Employees Union supports the general idea of phased retirement but has taken issue with some of the specifics set out by the Office of Personnel Management in its draft regulations. NTEU President Colleen Kelley says the rules, in their current form, require would-be phased retirees to have 20 years of experience, which could limit the number of employee eligible for the program. NTEU is also concerned about the lack of an appeals process for feds deemed ineligible for the option.
