OPM ANNOUNCES PHASED RETIREMENT Phased Retirement is a human resources tool that allows full-time employees to work part-time schedules while beginning to draw retirement benefits. This new tool will allow managers to better provide unique mentoring opportunities for employees while increasing access to the decades of institutional knowledge and experience that retirees can provide.

COLA/LOCALITY PAY; GET THE FACTS The Honolulu-Pacific Federal Executive Board continues to receive inquiries regarding the COLA/Locality Pay “transition” that suggest that there is still some confusion amongst some employees and their HR support regarding the status of COLA and Locality Pay in Non-Foreign Areas (which include Hawaii, Guam and the CNMI). Please review the "Locality Pay Fact Sheet" that was published in May for the HPFEB Full Membership Meeting along with the June 2014 update.
