Federal retirements surge in January
from Government Executive
Federal employees retired in droves in January, causing the claims backlog at the Office of Personnel Management to balloon. North of 17,000 workers filed retirement claims with OPM, more than tripling the total from December. Still, the agency received 2,617 fewer claims than it expected to in January. Feds typically retire in much higher volumes at the beginning of each year, with more than 22,000 filing claims in January 2013.
