Financial planner for retirement checkup


Q. I am a 50-year-old federal employee looking for a fee-only financial planner to check my finances to see if I am on track to retire when I reach 65. I am not looking for someone to manage my finances — only to check my plan and maybe someone to check in with once ever couple of years. Is this expensive — where do I find someone who is very familiar with the FERS and federal retirement specifically in my area?

A. That’s what I do. You may visit for more information.
