Phased retirement


Q. It’s been almost a year since the Federal Phased Retirement Act was passed and still we have no idea when it will be put into action. What is taking so long, and is there any idea when it will be effective?

A. I don’t know what’s taking it so long nor do I know when it will be effective.
