Federal Government Employees

Federal government benefits are particularly complex. We work with employees from a number of agencies and thus have a thorough understanding of the often-nuanced retirement options.

Our expertise includes:

  • Pensions under both the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) and the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), including how those pensions interact with Social Security under early-retirement scenarios
  • Investment options and withdrawal rules for the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)
  • Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) and the coverage available to retirees
