Premiums, shutdowns, and retirement prep

The next couple of months will busy — in some ways critical — for federal and postal workers. Many health premiums are going up, the 1.5 percent pay raise is pending and there is a due Dec. 11 shutdown deadline. Also December and January are the favorite months for feds to retire.

Greg Stanford and Katie Maddocks from the Federal Managers Association will be talking about the new self-plus one option, and the possibility of a government shutdown in December. Benefits expert Tammy Flanagan will go over retirement prepping both for new and mid-career workers as well as short-timers.
