It includes the possibility of an increase in Medicare Part B premiums, the potential for another government shutdown, and whether federal, military and Social Security retirees will get a cost of living adjustment next year.

NARFE is hoping to head off any Medicare premium hikes, and also derail a plan to reduce future COLAs for retirees.
