  • spur retirements?

    This could delay as many retirements as it encourages. If someone is not quite eligible before the effective dates, then he or she may be inclined to stay on that much longer to receive what they would prior to any changes. Also, with a freeze on CSRS COLA's until age 62, anyone not eligible to get out would feel forced to stay through age 62. Also, anyone otherwise eligible who for some reason cannot jump ship thenthey too would feel forced to stay at least until age 62. This could end up a wash, with as many people deferring retirement as hastening retirement.
