Life After Furlough

While many federal employees are focused on the pending furlough as of today, they need to also keep their eyes on life after furlough- and it is possibly even uglier than the furlough.

As of this writing, there are a number of proposals directly and adversely affecting federal employee pay and benefits.  All these proposals are sponsored by the GOP.  These include:

  • Continued pay freeze with no “sunset”
  • Increase retirement contributions for all current and future federal employees (no “grandfather”)
  • Increased FEHB premiums
  • Elimination or reduction of a number of premium pay formats

There are a number of excellent primary sources for more specific information on pending changes and proposed legislation.  They include:
