  • Do Androids dream of electric sheep?

    Enquiring minds need to know. Otherwise, Mike has us pegged pretty well. I should be dreaming of shuffleboard or golf, but really wonder how I'm going to survive the next 10 years. I'm too young to go out now, which seems like lottery winning for those who can. I guess these GS-15's and up who have $100K+ pensions really do have it made. Depending on what happens with inflation and stock market, I'll still be nowhere near that and can only envy those who have $100K+ with COLAs. That is the sweet deal. Us FERS survivors who will work till age 62 are just lucky to have jobs.

    Unless something changes, it does not look good for many federal workers over the next 9 or 10 years as they try to balance the budget. I wish you and fers fed the best of luck.

  • Had enough, so retired before too late
    Honest Broker
    For those with only 10 years to retirement, they probably better hang in there but the younger folks have a long and hard road ahead. I hated all the unnecessary outsourcing caused by the politicians and their cronies. By letting influential Govt military and civilian leaders to work directly for contractors after retirement, there was corruption through out the acquisition process. I would like to see change, but the politicians hold that power and they like the money too much. I did not see any change in the near term, so I retired before they changed the benefits formula. I vote for change, but the politicians do not all come up for office at the same time so 2/3 of the problem children remain. Is there anything in the constitution about an across the board recal election?
