Phased retirement is a human resources tool that will allow full-time employees to work a part-time schedule and draw partial retirement benefits during employment. The ``Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act,'' or ``MAP-21,'' requires OPM to publish regulations implementing phased retirement under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS). The final rule informs agencies and employees about who may elect phased retirement, what benefits are provided during phased retirement, how OPM intends to compute the annuity payable during and after phased retirement, and how employees may fully retire after a period of phased retirement. The final rule does not address every administrative detail of the phased retirement process. OPM will be issuing separate guidance to assist agencies and employees with administrative and procedural matters that do not need to be addressed in this rule. Employees may not enter phased retirement or submit applications for phased retirement to OPM until 90 days after publication of this final rule.phased-retirementFR-Doc-2014-18681

This rule clarifies that the regulations governing a participant's options for electing makeup contributions when he or she receives a back pay award or other retroactive pay adjustment apply when the back pay award or other retroactive pay adjustment is for a period during which the participant was not appointed to a position that is covered by FERS, CSRS, or an equivalent system under which TSP participation is authorized.

Based on the Agency's memorandum of understanding and data match program with the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE), as well as a legislative amendment which subjects TSP accounts to orders issued pursuant to the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act (MVRA), the Agency's court order volume has significantly increased and will likely continue to increase significantly. In order to promote efficiency and equity in light of this current and likely future increase in the Agency's court order workload, the Agency is amending its regulations to shorten the time period in which child support orders and MVRA orders are payable. The amendments clarify that these payments are subject to Federal income tax withholding and that tax withholding cannot be waived. Further, the amendments provide that when payment of a qualifying retirement benefits order is to be made to a participant's current or former spouse, the payee may request to have the payment made as early as 30 days after the date of the TSP decision letter. The Agency considers these amendments to be procedural in character. As a result, no notice and comment period is required by the Administrative Procedure Act.
