Your benefits don’t begin at retirement; they begin the day you start working. And while focusing on your career may be one of your top priorities, the last thing you should have to worry about is whether you are receiving the most from your benefits. Whether you’ve been working for only a few years or you’re a few years from retirement, there is almost certainly room to improve your situation.
Take a look below at the services we offer working individuals. We are available for one-on-one consultations by phone, video call, and in-person to discuss any of these topics. No matter what your need is, at any given point in time, we are no more than a single phone call away.
In order to take full advantage of each of your benefits, you must first understand how they work. While some benefits like annual and sick leave are unique to you while you are working, some will carry over from work into retirement, such as your Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) or Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance (FEGLI).
Whether working or retired, we can help you examine your personal situation in order to make the best elections possible.
