FEDERAL RETIREMENT NAVIGATION WEBINAR

February 4

(There is no cost for this webinar.)

“I strongly recommend this presentation.”

-Terrance, Bureau of Labor Statistics

Do you know the answers to these questions?

(because most federal employees don’t, but you will after the webinar)
Q-Protect-TSP

What has happened to your TSP lately?! You don’t want to time your retirement when the market tanks.  How can you grow your money as much as possible yet still protect it from disappearing?

Sure, they say the price of your FEHB won’t go up just because you retire.  That’s true.  But it will cost you more.  Is this a contradiction?  No, instead it is something most employees don’t understand.

Q-health-care-costs
Q-Taxes

Most people know they will be taxed, but they don’t know how much and on what. And they don’t know that they could avoid taxes in some areas altogether. How do you make sure you keep as much of your own money as possible?

Have you ever asked yourself, “At what point will my pension check only cover my FEHB?”  Have you ever thought that this would be a question you need to ask?

Q-FEHB-alone
Q-full-pension

Yes, you will get a pension check.  But you won’t get everything you deserve right after you retire. How much of your pension check will they give you? And when will you get your full pension check?

You know how much money you will receive.  But that amount will differ from the amount that will actually go into your bank account.  What is the amount you can count on to use in retirement?

Q-Into-Bank
Q-Medicare

One of the most often questions we are asked is this one.  Which should you do? or should you do both?  Or Neither?  What are the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy?

This is probably the biggest question of all:
WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD YOU BE ASKING?
Because you don’t know what you don’t know.

Q-should-be-asking
