CSRS Retirement Class in Anchorage, Alaska

Come to the CSRS Retirement Class and learn more about your Federal retirement benefits.

At our full-day workshop, Federal Employees will learn extensively about their retirement benefits and what items they should take into consideration before retiring from the Federal Government.

Our CSRS Classes are Different…

You’ve probably been to a pre-retirement class before, but if you’ve never been to one of our CSRS classes, you could be missing out on some important information on your benefits.

So what’s different about our CSRS Pre-Retirement Classes?

CSRS Benefits + Financial Planning for Federal Employees

Federal Employees have unique financial planning considerationsthat most generic financial planning information doesn’t address.

And most pre-retirement classes talk about your CSRS benefits, but  leave you guessing when it comes to how to apply those benefits to your personal situation.

We believe that your CSRS benefits are just one piece of your overall financial puzzle.

It’s important to understand your CSRS benefits, but it’s also important to understand how your benefits choices impact other areas of your life.

At our CSRS Class, we’ll help you learn about your benefits – but also how to fit them into your overall financial picture.
