The NIH Training Center offers retirement preparedness workshops for every stage of your Federal career no matter what stage you are in.  These workshops will assist in guiding you to map your eventual retirement.  Explore these offerings as you plan for FY22!

Understanding FERS Benefits for Early-Career Employees Workshop

This one-day workshop is designed for the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) with 2-5 years of federal service.

You will learn the 3-tiered system - that Social Security and the TSP are as important as the payments to FERS.  A valuable reminder for those who are early in their careers … don’t wait until mid-career to know this!

Mid-Career Financial Planning for Retirement Workshop

This two-day workshop is designed for the FERS employee with 5-20 years of federal service, or who entered federal service mid-career.

Pre-Retirement Workshop (CSRS) and Pre-Retirement Workshop (FERS)

These three-day workshops are designed to provide those on the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) or the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) and within 10 years of retirement, an overview of their federal retirement benefits.

Pre-Retirement Workshop (FERS) - Three Consecutive Fridays

Same as our above FERS workshop but runs three consecutive Fridays rather than three consecutive weekdays.

Retirement Refresher Workshop

This course is designed for the Federal Employee within one year of retirement and is fine-tuning decisions on leaving service. Attendance to the three-day Pre-Retirement Workshop is required.
