Eye on Washington with Jessica Klement

While the day-to-day work of federal employees is determined by their agencies, key decisions on federal pay, return to office policies, budgets, retirement and health benefits – and more – are made at government-wide levels by OPM, OMB, and/or politically-motivated legislators and administrations. With multiple actors and complex policies, it’s often difficult for even the savviest of federal employees and retirees to make heads from tails. Join longtime federal community advocate Jessica Klement and her guests as they cut through the noise and provide you with the information you need to understand how emerging policies will affect you – or not – and make informed decisions about your future.
