Kim Weaver, director, Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board

President Obama signs a bill that changes how new Federal employees will save for retirement. Instead of having 3% of their pay go into the G Fund if they don't choose for themselves, the money will go into one of the TSP's lifecycle funds. Kim Weaver is director of external affairs at the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said the TSP has been behind this idea for a long time.

Larry Korb, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress

Congress is capping the pensions of top military officials in 2015. As part of National Defense Authorization Act, pensions for generals and admirals will be trimmed to ensure they make no more in retirement than they did on active duty. That reverses a 2007 law designed to help retain officers during wartime. What effects, if any, will this have on the military's ability to retain its senior officers? Larry Korb is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and former assistant secretary of Defense for manpower and reserve affairs. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with a look at this measure.
