As an employee of the Federal or California state government, you have access to a vast and extensive retirement package. Many of these benefits can be carried into retirement. In most cases you only get one chance to make the right decision when selecting how to use your retirement benefits. Choosing wisely can make a world of difference in the way these benefits can enhance you and your family's lifestyle.
Understanding the most effective and productive ways to use these various benefits can be both confusing and frustrating. The goal of the "Calling ALL Federal and State Retirees!" educational event is to individually discuss and define your various retirement benefits in order to provide you the knowledge you'll need to best utilize these benefits to your advantage.
The educational event will discuss some of the lesser-known detailed items buried within many of the employee benefits which can cause mistakes and misunderstandings.
Topics to be discussed:
Federal Pensions (CSRS & FERS)
Calif State Pension (CalPERS & CalSTRS)
State Employee Healthcare Insurance
Thrift Savings Plan
Savings Plus 401k/457 & 403b plans
