One System. Hundreds of Choices. Thousands of Opinions. Zero Clear Answers.

As a federal employee – you know your benefits are complex and understanding which is the best option for you takes more than knowledge.  It takes experience, skill and judgement. If you’re a federal employee and can’t find a financial professional who knows the difference between CSRS from FERS? Has never heard of the TSP? Or thinks FEGLI is some sort of pasta dish?  Look no further.

Are you wondering if you have enough money saved up to retire?  When you should take your FERS pension? Or when you should start taking Social Security? Or what is correct TSP investment strategy to generate income AND have the extras in retirement life such as travel and fun without taking the risk of running out of money?   

Would you rather KNOW then GUESS?
