  • Phased retirement included??

    Please correct me if I am wrong... But is this transportation bill either S.1813 or H.R.14 which contains the Baucus Amendment that proposes phased retirement (flexible retention) for retirement-eligible Feds?

  • Phased Retirement
    I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you asking what the bill number is and if it includes the amendment for phased retirement? -- Julia Ziegler, Web Manager, Federal News Radio

    Yes. Just trying to confirm if this is the same transportation bill that includes the Baucus Amendment regarding phased retirement. Thanks. The Baucus Amendment is included in both of the aforementioned bill numbers.

    If you look in either bill at Sec. 100115 "Phased retirement authority", it gives some of the details. I am just wondering how OPM is going to deal with this, and how phased retirement will impact benefits earned and ability to continue contributing to TSP, etc.
