October 16, 2017 – Host Bob Leins welcomes Bob Braunstein, Federal Benefits Specialist, to talk about what you can do to be ready for retirement.
Bob and Bob will talk about proposed changes on the horizon and what they mean from both the benefits and financial perspectives. Such as:
Increasing biweekly retirement contributions for FERS employees (without commensurate increase in benefit)
Going from a high-3 to high-5 for annuity calculations
Elimination of FERS Annuity Supplement
Elimination/reduction of COLAs for Federal annuities
What do these things mean for your pocket book, retirement plans, and general overall quality of living now and once you are retired?
Today’s guest will also talk about reasons you might change your FEHB Plan during the 2018 Open Season towards the end of the program.
