Retirement planning


Q. I have over 43 years of government service. I have bought back my military time, and I am considering retirement. I’m just not sure that I can afford it. Any advice?
A: This is a complex question and there is no simple answer. You can start by paying a visit to the Federal Retirement University website at This resource is currently under development but there is already content there that will help you get started, and more will be coming soon.
