FERS Federal Employee Benefits Training Class Outline
Our Federal Employee Benefits-Class is tailored to FERS Employees. We designed an eight-hour class that centers around the information that Federal Employees have over the years asked us to cover. Our class is for all FERS Employees and while we will discuss "retirement" in depth we think that this information is critical for all FERS Employees, NOT just those 5 year out from retirement.
Our comprehensive federal employee benefits class for federal employees (FERS) and their spouses. Our one-day, eight-hour workshop covers pressing topics about how the federal employee benefit system works in conjunction with other areas of their lives.
