Pre-Retirement Workshop (FERS) - Three Consecutive Fridays

Course ID: 

Are you within ten years of retirement eligibility and beginning to consider life after NIH? The three-day Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) workshop, which runs over three consecutive Fridays, 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.
