Phase Retirement is a HR tool that will allow full-time employees to work a part-time schedule and draw partial retirement benefits during employment. It is also another tool to enable agencies to manage their workforce, promote best practices, and encourage experienced employees to spend some time mentoring the next generation of experts.

Participation is voluntary, and requires the mutual consent of both the employee and employing agency. In order to participate, an individual must be a full-time employee for the preceding three years. Under CSRS, the individual must be eligible for immediate retirement with at least 30 years of service at age 55, or with 20 years of service at age 60. Under FERS, the individual must be eligible for immediate retirement with at least 30 years of service at the minimum retirement age of 55-57 depending upon year of birth, or with 20 years of service at age 60.

Section 100121 of Public Law 112-141, the "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act," or "MAP-21" approved on July 6, 2012, authorizes this tool.
