"Fantastic! It was far more helpful than any other reference, training, co-worker, website has been. It gave the exact formula, great examples, and crystal clear instruction for everything I needed."
Easy-to-understand explanations that take the stress out of learning
Follow a straightforward plan stay on track over the years
Develop your personal TSP savings, investment and withdrawal plan
How much you’ll get each month?
When you can retire?
Are you saving the right amount in TSP?
Why should you elect this or that?
What else should you be doing right?
….then you’re in good company. Most people struggle to figure all of this out because the typical lecture style training simply doesn’t work. It’s a miserable way for employees to attempt to learn the ins and outs of the FERS requirements, calculations and options.
We believe that you shouldn’t have to wonder if you’ll have something to show for it after a lifetime of Federal service.
There’s a myth that if an employee is taught about the benefits then they’ll automatically know what to do next. But it’s not true—there’s a lot more to retirement planning. After all, if it were that simple, then everyone could read OPM’s website and be done.
Here's what works. Employees need a defined system to follow so that they can take that jumbled set of rules, requirements and decisions, then figure out exactly what to do (and when do to it) for a retirement they can count on.
The FERS BlueprintTM Advantage is our step-by-step educational model designed so that employees can overcome the complexity of retirement and the confusion caused by typical training.
This educational model is geared for all employees, but it is especially helpful for mid- to late career employees who don’t want to find out after it’s too late something they should have known or done.
The 3 phases in The FERS BlueprintTM Advantage:
How do we know this approach works?
The FERS BlueprintTM Advantage is a time-tested approach based on our founder Kelly Monroe’s extensive experience with FERS benefits. Ms. Monroe has conducted over 2,300 one-on-one retirement benefits consultations. She has 11 years of experience successfully teaching retirement benefits to 8,000 Federal employees and counting. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing her students’ faces light up when they finally understand retirement—having confidence in themselves and their own future.
We know that once an employee has accurate knowledge, a plan to follow and a set of action to do one after the next, the path to retirement gets much easier. They can finally feel like their retirement is ‘working for them’—instead of the other way around!
"A step-by-step process to evaluate all aspects of our retirement system - looking at both our work retirement system and the systems outside of our workplace. These numbers matter to our future bottom line! "
A dynamic and interactive virtual training with step-by-step educational process so that employees can develop the knowledge they’ll need to retire
Straightforward explanations, case studies, and hands-on practice worksheets make remembering the ‘ins and outs’ of each benefit easy—or as is often said, “Oh, I GET IT NOW!”
Employees and their spouses/partners can learn at their own pace without the frustration and stress of trying to “take it all in” at once. Virtual training available 24 hours/7 days on any device with an internet connection.
Instructor provides personalized answers to employees’ benefit questions in the private Members Only Forum. Answers are provided within 72 hours.
Can you explain in detail how each benefit works? Do you know how much you’ll get each month? Are you relying on your co-workers for retirement advice? Do you worry that time is slipping away? Is your TSP savings on track? Did your TSP lose a lot in the last recession? Are you concerned that a mistake by your HR might be difficult to spot, and impossible correct? A lack of clarity may already be costing you a great deal.

Kelly L. Monroe
"People need a framework or system to follow as they learn—because unfortunately most of us can’t just hear something and figure out what to do with it."
We know that FERS employees have excellent retirement benefits. But the complexity of those benefits can leave you confused, frustrated, and unsure of how to maximize your retirement. The FERS BlueprintTM Retirement Training System takes away that complexity and shows you a simple framework to help you understand your benefits and plan retirement with ease.
A Secure Retirement Begins with Financial Literacy
Kelly Monroe, instructor and founder of the FERS BlueprintTM, realized that when employees attended retirement training with the typical PowerPoint slides and bullet points, they often ended up confused. People need a simple framework or system to follow as they learn—because unfortunately most of us can’t just hear something and figure out what to do with it.
The FERS BlueprintTM Retirement Training System is the culmination of Kelly’s professional experience as a financial planner and a retirement benefits trainer. She has a unique view on Federal employees, FERS benefits and retirement planning. This comes from personally conducting over 2,300 individual FERS/CSRS pre-retirement consultations over the last 11 years. Kelly has also taught this framework to over 8,000 employees.
Many employees are worried about retirement planning—and they should be! There are some major blind spots that ALL employees should be more informed about. The FERS BlueprintTM Retirement Training System curriculum is designed to help you finish strong with tested retirement strategies to:
