The TSP Retirement PivotTM Workshop 


Course CTFL02

1 Evening




Workshop description

Throughout your career, saving and investing in your TSP has been the focus.  Now that you're approaching retirement, you'll need to shift your focus from saving to withdrawals.  We call it The TSP Retirement PivotTM.

This livestream workshop takes the complexity out of these retirement decisions.  Compassionate, common-sense explanations and lots of sample calculations show you how you can adjust your focus for a satisfying investment and withdrawal plan, including income taxes.  We’ll also help you to understand how the recent TSP Modernization ACT, SECURE Act and CARES act can impact your retirement nest egg in 2020 and beyond.

You'll learn how to evaluate your options and select the one(s) that can help you achieve security, flexibility and independence in retirement in a supportive educational environment with NO annuity or financial selling.  You'll be poised to "cross the finish line" with a greater confidence and solid resources to refer back to time and time again.

The workshop is recorded and video replay will be available in the student portal for 90 days.
