In a shocking affront to working Americans, the White House budget proposal for FY 2019 requests devastating cuts to federal employee retirement, including cuts to the annuities of current retirees. Without any meaningful fiscal logic, the administration proposes the elimination of COLAs, a 6% increase in retirement contributions without an annuity increase, elimination of the social security supplement, lower annuities based on ‘High 5’ calculations, lowering the rate of return on the TSP G Fund, and increasing FEHBP employee contributions (on top of the current average annual premium increase of 6.5%). Together, these cuts will take $200 to $300 billion more from federal employees, retirees, and their families over the next ten years. Say NO to further cuts to retirement security and earned benefits!
