Phased retirement: Is it coming to your agency?

January 28, 2015 — Many people would jump at the chance to phase into retirement. And some feds (probably not many, but some) are going to have that option later this year.

So how is it going to work? When is it likely to start in your agency? What are your odds for getting phased out, or mentored up?

Today at 10 a.m. EST on our “Your Turn”, Washington attorney Julie Perkins joins host Mike Causey to discuss the who, what, when, where and whys of the program.

Perkins is an employment law attorney and partner with Shaw, Bransford and Roth.

We’ll also discuss a new round of legislation targeting the federal workforce and how customer satisfaction scores for government agencies continues to fall.
