Social Security & TRICARE

This week on “Your Turn”, John Grobe, president of Federal Career Experts, joins host Mike Causey to discuss Social Security, the best day to retire, and other life questions that federal workers nearing retirement may have.

Questions such:

  • Do you need to take your Social Security at the earliest possible date because of the offset?
  •  Could you increase your retirement if you work after retirement at a non-governmental job?
  • What is the best day to retire to get the maximum benefit from your annual leave payment?

Later in the show, TRICARE Deputy Director Captain Edward Simmer will give us an update on the health plan, which has recently added some new programs.  He will also answer your questions about the TRICARE transition in an online chat after the show.
