Phased Retirement is a human resources tool that allows full-time employees to work part-time schedules while beginning to draw retirement benefits. This new tool will allow managers to better provide unique mentoring opportunities for employees while increasing access to the decades of institutional knowledge and experience that retirees can provide.
This is yet another forward thinking policy that allows the Administration to continue its efforts to deliver a Government that is effective, efficient, and supportive of economic growth.
The final regulations are available on the Federal Register website and will take effect 90 days from August 8, 2014. This means that agencies can send their Phased Retirement applications to OPM for processing as early as November 6, 2014.
Guidance and other material about Phased Retirement will be posted here as it becomes available.
