How taking the right actions matter
Life after retirement used to be called “The Golden Years.” Not anymore! With more people working beyond the traditional age of retirement and leading active lives, the time spent sitting back, rocking on the porch, hardly exists. That’s why it’s important to understand what measures need to be taken to ensure a comfortable income long after the regular paychecks stop coming.
Talk to someone who knows the ropes
Federal Civilian Employees like you have a unique set of circumstances when it comes to retirement benefits and income. On one hand, the advantage of having a defined program like CSRS or FERS is easy to contribute to and maintain. It comes right out of your paycheck and into annuities and, for most, the Thrift Savings Plan. However, depending on the political and economic climate, the amount of matching funds and percentage of contributions hasn’t been certain.
At FedChoice, we look for ways to keep your retirement security from becoming a moving target. Our Financial Service Advisors have extensive training in the area of federal benefits and can suggest products and services to not only supplement your existing benefits, but also help you keep your money where it belongs – with you!
