For Federal Employees

If you are employed by the Federal Government, you may be left with more questions than answers when trying to understand your benefits, and how they apply to your financial plan.  Most financial planners do not understand federal employee benefits and retirement plans.  As one of only five Chartered Federal Employee Benefits Consultants (ChFEBC) in Massachusetts, I am uniquely positioned to advise you on all aspects of your federal benefits.  Below are some of the questions I have helped my “Federal Government” clients address: Sabbaday Falls

  • When can I retire, given my age and years of service with the federal government?
  • When should I retire, given my individual financial situation?
  • How much is my retirement benefit worth every month?
  • What is the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP), does it affect me, and by how much will it reduce my Social Security Retirement Benefit?
  • Which options should I take to:
    • Ensure that my spouse is protected against my untimely death
    • Ensure that my spouse can maintain the health insurance coverage
    • Maximize my monthly federal pension


  • Should I purchase my life insurance coverage through the Federal Employee Group Life Insurance Plan (FEGLI), or is it more advantageous and cost-effective to purchase an individual life insurance policy?

Federal LTCI Plan (offered by LTC Partners)

  • Should I purchase my long-tern care insurance policy through the Federal LTCI Plan (offered by LTC Partners), or is it more advantageous and potentially cost-effective to purchase an individual long-tern care insurance policy?

CSRS Voluntary Contribution Plan

  • Should I invest in the CSRS Voluntary Contribution plan?
  • What is the most advantageous way for me to withdraw my existing balance in the CSRS Voluntary Contribution plan?

Thrift Savings Plan (TSP)

  • Given my risk tolerance and time horizon to retirement, as well as my other retirement assets, how should I allocate my assets in the TSP?
  • Can I direct transfer my assets from my TSP account to a Rollover IRA with another investment firm if I am over age 59½?
