Federal worker's annuity checks shrinking
Due to increased federal withholding, federal workers will see a lower number on their annuity checks. Higher health insurance premiums and no cost-of-living adjustments for two years make this change even more noticable.
Retirees can affect the amount of their checks bu adjusting their federal tax withholding deductions at www.opm.gov/retire or by calling 1-888-767-6738. Be aware that changing the amount of withholdings will not change your tax liability.
