Feds ride the money, benefits wave longer than expected

For many federal employees, retiring well after they become eligible makes more sense than retiring the minute they reach that benchmark. As part of Federal News Radio's special report, The Reverse Retirement Wave, Kim Weaver, the director of External Affairs for the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, explains her decision to hold off on jumping straight into life after federal service.

Feds choose to stay longer, creating new retirement bubble

The retirement tsunami has long been the "boogeyman" of federal HR managers -- that baby boomers would be leaving the civil service in droves as they became eligible for retirement. An exclusive Federal News Radio survey reveals that something else may be going on. In part 1 of our special report, The Reverse Retirement Wave, we explore why federal employees are opting to stay on the job longer even though they are eligible to retire.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

Members of the Senior Executive Service have had a rough year or two. Now political leaders from both the White House and Congress offer up ways to improve the SES. There's the mundane, such as the White House is launching a candidate development program. And the punitive legislation that would make it easier to fire SES members when things go wrong. Today, Federal News Radio launches a special series called "Fixing the SES." We'll bring you the voices of those who know the system best current and former SES members. We start with former acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel. He was an SES member before becoming a political appointee. He's now an outside consultant. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, Werfel told reporter Emily Kopp that SES members are older and under more stress than ever before.

Fixing the SES: 'This used to be an honor. Now it's a joke.'

Fewer than half of the Senior Executive Service members who responded to an exclusive Federal News Radio online survey say they would join today. The survey results were even more dim for federal employees at the GS-15 and GS-14 ranks. In the first of our four-part special report, Fixing the SES, we examine how current senior execs feel about the SES, and what they believe is right and wrong with the service.
