Fed Life — Jan. 24, 2024

If the 2023 stock market showed anything, it’s that you can’t predict the stock market. Instead, you need a strategy you can stick with. Nearly every federal employee has a Thrift Savings Plan account. For how to think about it, I spoke with Art Stein of Arthur Stein Financial .

Plus, the Office of Personnel Management had a relatively successful year chipping away at a large retirement inventory. But now OPM must bracing for a surge in federal retirement claims, at the same time its working on a big modernizing project. I discussed this with Federal News Network reporter Drew Friedman.
