Welcome to the 63rd edition of the Federal Employees Almanac!
We are excited to bring you another year of polices, legislation and rules and regulations that impact your federal career all in a single source guide.
This guide will help you navigate your career and benefits as a federal employee as well as a federal retiree, which can be a difficult task. But our experts have tracked all of the important changes in legislation throughout the year to help our readers stay abreast of the developments.
The 63rd edition includes changes to advance leave policies and leave for family care; the new "self plus one" option in health insurance; the expansion of the General Schedule locality pay program and the latest pay rates; and benefits for employees affected by the cyber security breaches.
Every page of this book provides you with details on benefits such as dental and vision programs, long-term care options, hiring and transferring processes, promotions, and many other aspects of your federal career. It also is available in a web version that includes real-time updates.
The Federal Employees Almanac owes its accuracy and comprehensiveness to the hard work and invaluable contributions of some of the top experts in the federal benefits and employment field. 1105 Media offers its special thanks to Reginald M. Jones, former director of retirement and insurance policy at the Office of Personnel Management, and Ed Zurndorfer, a Certified Financial Planner and Enrolled Agent and owner of EZ Accounting and Financial Services.
