Early Out Retirement Offer Goes Out

There are reports here and here that the Social Security Administration is offering early out retirement to all of its employees. Social Security has offered early out retirement to certain groups of employees in the past but it is hard to imagine that this universal early out offer is something other than an effort to avoid furloughs forced upon the agency by budget problems.

No early out, offer a sizable buyout to get the senior citizens to finally retire.

Buyouts will never happen at SSA, because just getting rid of people isn't the goal.

The main reason for the early outs is to allow the agency to try to spread out the eventual major attrition by encouraging those who otherwise want to go to go.
