Financial Planning for Federal Employees
The Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) is unique in of itself. No other private sector or state agency has benefits that mirror those of the FERS precisely.
The internet and water cooler are both inundated with “information” about your retirement benefits but it can be hard to sift through “so much”.
Working with a financial professional who does not specialize in Federal Employee benefits presents its own unique set of challenges as well. A considerable amount of advisors have a very general idea of you the FERS Benefits work but may not understand the complexities.
At Shilanski & Associates Inc., working with Federal Employees is one of our firms specialties.
Our Advisors specialize in Federal Employee Benefits; work with agencies and human resource individuals and attend OPM conferences when applicable.
Our Advisors are also qualified Financial Advisors who look at your Federal Employee benefits as a component and use those benefits to help develop a greater financial plan. One that takes your annuity, survivor benefits, health care and TSP into account when constructing a comprehensive financial plan.
