The United States government provides one of the best benefit packages anywhere. Those benefits are available to over 3 million federal employees all over the world.
In our experience, the federal population has been grossly neglected when it comes to education and advice on their benefits. Our mission is to help each and every Federal Employee gain the knowledge they need to make the right financial decisions that allow them to work and retire at the highest possible levels. We serve the federal employee by helping them organize their federal and retirement benefits to meet their financial goals.
Federal Employee Retirement Specialists conducts Seminars, Workshops and one-on-one personal training that satisfies federal agencies’ requirement to provide pre-retirement and benefits training. Our training is in accordance with OPM’s financial literacy objectives. Federal agencies throughout the country are anxious to side with FERS to bring the highest quality training to their employees at the early, middle or nearing the end of their careers.
While federal benefits are often confusing and difficult to interpret, we’re able to break down complex concepts into easy-to-understand language and to show employees how proactive benefit decisions can positively affect their overall financial situation.
