Fee only Planning for Federal and Postal Employees

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 adviser 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.

Starting in 2005 with one retiring letter carrier, Anthony Bucci built Mission Point Planning to guide federal employees through the myriad of financial decision on their way to, and through retirement.  Anyone can find lots of information about financial planning and retirement. But federal employees really do have unique financial planning considerations that go beyond traditional financial planning.  After hundreds of federal employees retire, Tony’s expertise has been now nationally recognized.  He has been interviewed on Federal News Radio and is a regular writing contributor on FedSmith, one of the largest Federal Employee blogs in the country. 

Tony also owns and leads Mission Point Federal Benefits, an insurance agency designed to help Federal employees make more informed insurance decisions regarding FEGLI (life insurance) and FLTCP (long term care insurance)
