The Federal Retirement Impact Workshop is a very unique CSRS and FERS benefits class focused on helping employees apply what they are learning in the classroom to their own situation. Instead of teaching at a very technical level regarding the benefit rules, we aim to educate employees to know the financial impact of retirement and benefit decisions, and to make those decisions carefully based on sound information.
While federal retirement benefits are often confusing and difficult to interpret, ProFeds is able to break down complex concepts into easy-to-understand language to show federal employees how proactive benefit decisions can positively affect their overall financial situation.
What federal employees are saying
This workshop has consistently received 5-star reviews by federal agencies around the country. While the agencies are pleased to host such an impactful training session, the employees leave feeling confident and empowered to take action to positively affect their plans for retirement—truly a win-win. Read testimonials from attendees here.
The employees who typically benefit most from this workshop are within 5-10 years of retirement. Those closer to retirement often have specific questions and concerns regarding retirement decisions to be made—and that makes this workshop particularly relevant to their situation.
Tailoring the workshop to meet the needs of employees
With the wide array of federal employees we train, we know the importance of tailoring the workshop material to suit their specific needs. The most common accommodations we make are for audiences of Law Enforcement Officers, Air Traffic Controllers and Firefighters.
Following the workshop
The financial professional who hosts the workshop offers each employee an opportunity to meet to review their specific situation and develop a personalized Federal Benefits Analysis together. This analysis helps to demonstrate the value of their benefits and identify key decisions to be made as they move closer to retirement. This benefits review is offered at no cost to the agency or employee.
