PHASED RETIREMENT NOW AVAILABLE AT THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE - June 21, 2016

Retirees who sign up for the program agree to work part-time at their posts while receiving a portion of their retirement annuity. During the transition, outgoing federal workers mentor employees seeking to take over their workplace responsibilities.
