Pre-Retirement Workshop (FERS)

Course ID: 

Are you within ten years of retirement eligibility and beginning to consider life after NIH? This three-day Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) workshop is designed to provide you with an overview of your federal retirement benefits. Begin to secure your finances and set goals necessary to smoothly transition into retirement. This class is recommended for those who were hired after 12/31/1983 and are within 10 years of retirement eligibility.

Please note that we also run this same three-day FERS class across three consecutive Fridays. Please register for NIHTC5811 (FERS) if that better suits your work schedule.*

As a courtesy participants spouses can attend at no additional cost. Spousal attendance is strictly on a first requested basis due to space limitations. Send requests to Jessica Whitaker at Ensure LMS approval first.

Key Topics: 

Please note that this class is not eligible for CLPs. Also if this class precedes a federal holiday, the session will run to the end of the day as usual. Please take note before registering and plan accordingly.
