One candidate for Congress’ early attention is legislation to address the problem of employees enrolled in the wrong retirement system. While that directly affects only about an estimated 20,000 current and now-retired employees, it takes first place in line because both the House and Senate passed bills on the issue last year. Those bills differ in several significant ways—particularly over the House’s more generous provisions on making up for lost Thrift Savings Plan opportunities for those incorrectly enrolled in CSRS instead of FERS—but there’s a great deal of impatience on all sides to get the issue resolved. The problem has been under more or less active review for more than a decade.
