What would be the most effective way to speed up the passing of this bill so that the Federal Government can hire annuitants part time. It's a win win situation for the government and for the retiree. There is a huge amount of knowledge that is leaving our Federal Government which cannot be replaced with new hires.

Ask for a bailout! Wink Just joking. Not too sure Congress will even look at this for some time, especially with all the problems right now. With the tanking of the market, many people lost money in TSP and thus some are putting off retirement right now. So the brain drain may not be much of an issue for the next few years.

I have heard that the unions are opposed to part-time hire of annuitants, as it would reduce the number of job opportunities for their members.

Well, I retired in March........so, to late for me to change my mind. After 20 years as a Concession Specialist for the NPS and BLM I would think I have a lot to offer the government. It sounds like I should not hold my breath waiting for anything to happen with this bill.

DOD is the only one with a good retired annuitant program.
