Preparation is the key to a successful federal civil service retirement. This site helps Federal and Postal employees make the transition from active federal employee to an informed, financially prepared, and involved federal retiree. Current retirees will also find CSRS and FERS civil service retirement information and answers they need to make informed decisions. If you desire to work in retirement you will find extensive private sector job listings specifically targeting to retirees. You can also explore ways to return to government employment through the rehired annuitant program, personal service contracts, or contractor options. 
Many attend retirement seminars prior to retiring and return with more questions than answers. This site fills the gap and will help you determine if you are financially, emotionally and physically ready for federal retirement. You will be able to estimate your retirement income and expenses using our easy-to-follow checklist, complete federal retirement forms, explore financial issues including TSP options, understand basic estate civil service retirement planning techniques, find jobs in retirement if desired, and determine your spouse's survivor annuity income and expenses.
