Federal government employees in the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) can now access a new online course to help them understand their complicated employment benefits.The course is produced by the Snow-Cap Agency (http://www.snow-cap.com), a leading provider of seminars to government workers.
ÂUnderstanding your federal employee benefits is perhaps the most important aspect in making sure federal employees can plan for a financially comfortable retirement,Â says Judy Snow, president of the Snow-Cap Agency (http://www.snow-cap.com). ÂKnowing the right timing factors and making the right calculations can help federal workers avoid serious financial difficulties later in life.Â
This course is one of the most affordable and convenient ways for federal employees to be trained on nearly every aspect of their benefits. During the presentation, Judy Snow, a leading financial planner for federal employees, will give course attendees practical insights -- making it easier for them to navigate through the complex maze of the FERS federal employee benefits package. The course includes both audio and visual elements, much like SnowÂs on-site seminars, in an easy-to-use online format, giving convenient access to the information for nearly anyone with an Internet connection.
The specific topics covered include: FERS annuity/pension, survivor benefits,, Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), life insurance (FEGLI), health insurance (FEHB), flexible spending accounts, health savings accounts, Social Security benefits, and federal income tax issues.
This online course is recommended for all federal and postal employees (FERS and FERS Transferees), whether they are newly employed, in the middle of their career, or are nearing retirement. Information for special provisions (law enforcement, fire fighters, and air traffic controllers) is also included.
Federal employees can get more information and enroll in the course at http://www.snow-cap.com .
