Your Retirement Planning Checklist
If you are planning to retire within the next few years, this information is designed to help you through the retirement process.
Retirement is one of the most important events in your life. A successful retirement takes careful planning on your part — planning that hopefully began early in your working career to insure that you will have the income you need when you want to retire.
The retirement process itself is very simple for most people. However, if at all possible, there are several things you should do well in advance of your planned retirement so that there are no surprises when you do retire. By following the enclosed checklist, you can help assure that your retirement from Federal service will be smooth and worry free.
If you have any questions about retirement or insurance, please contact your servicing Benefits Specialist (PDF).
