A Simple Method That Can Help You Finally Understand Your Retirement Benefits

We believe understanding your Federal benefits doesn’t need to be complicated—instead, it should be simple and empowering.

Yet here’s our experience of a typical Federal retirement benefits training:

  1. Employees arrive motivated to learn how to maximize their benefits.
  2. They’re blasted with loads of UN-familiar information (imagine trying to drink from a fire hose...).
  3. They may feel confused, frustrated, and hopeless.

Even though we communicate in words, we think in pictures.

If I tell you a story about an elephant, you can follow along easily because you can visualize the animal in your mind’s eye. But what happens when I describe unfamiliar terms, like full vs. partial survivor benefit, supplemental pension, defined benefit, no reduction, etc.?

It can make your brain feel like it’s trying to grasp at straws.

We believe there IS a better way.

That’s why we’ve developed a simple, visual approach to empowering you to develop APPLICABLE KNOWLEDGE about your Federal benefits. The way we do it, most people understand it quickly and more easily than they ever thought possible. Using simple drawings, we turn abstract concepts into helpful concrete retirement lessons designed just for you.

We look forward to helping you empower yourself to better understand your benefits!
