Picture this: you’ve worked for the federal government for 30 years and you recently reached your MRA (which lies somewhere in between age 56-57 for most FERS employees). You’ve finally made it; you’re eligible to retire! You have overcome the first hurdle that separates you from your hard-earned retirement. Even though you’ve crossed the first barrier, that may not mean it’s your last… just because you can retire before age 60, does that mean you should?
In this webinar, we will explore the situations that lead federal employees to retire happily and financially stable before age 60. We will break down the math behind when it makes sense and when it doesn’t, weighing what you gain by retiring in your 50s vs. what you lose. We’ll discuss the benefits and opportunity costs of waiting for a higher pension, as you can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.
