Federal Employee Retirement Services was founded to serve the federal employee. When we were first exposed to the federal market, we could not believe the number of people who had worked for the government for 10, 15 or even 30 years and still did not know anything about their benefits.
It didn’t matter what division of the government, no one knew for sure what they had or how those benefits would affect them in retirement. Upon further research, we discovered that the federal government employs over 3 million people. The most startling aspect about this population is that over half of them are eligible to retire in the next 5 years. Many of these people are not sure of when they can retire, or how much of a pension they can count on from the government.
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.
Although the benefits are outstanding, the vast majority of employees do not understand what benefits they have, and more importantly how to best use them. With almost 3 million employees, it is impossible for the government to sit down with each employee and explain their benefits. Unfortunately, the earliest time the government is providing comprehensive benefit training is 5 years from retirement when in most cases it is too late.
For those employees who want to understand their benefits sooner, it’s up to them to do it on their own. If you haven’t looked at your benefit booklet lately, it’s not a whole lot different than a college course to learn everything you need to know.
Federal Employee Retirement Services was created to provide federal employees with competent advice and information on how to most effectively use their federal benefits and how to avoid some of the significant problems that can arise in retirement. 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.
