Welcome to the 67th edition of the Federal Employees Almanac!

We are pleased to bring you another year of policies, 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.

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 all of our editors.
