It can be helpful if employees who view appraisals with trepidation understand their rights and see the opportunities their appraisals can offer.

Daniel D. Andersen, Utah Retirement Systems (URS) executive director, presented a potential benefit known as “phased retirement” during the Retirement and Independent Entities Interim Committee meeting on June 24.
“Phased retirement is a tool that allows an employee to continue working at a reduced level while drawing a partial salary and a partial retirement benefit,” Andersen explained. He added that this new concept must be approached carefully in order to avoid unintended administrative and financial problems.
