Retirement can feel a little like jumping off a cliff. It's been a long trail to get here. You've worked hard. It's exciting but also a little scary as you sit on the edge between working and retirement. Understanding the topic can ease the uncomfortableness of jumping into the unknown. Within the federal government, local human resources staff are no longer trained on retirement. The regional offices can be busy, hard to contact, and at times a little intimidating especially if you don't know what you don't know. In her "Finally Understand" series, Ms. Hatch, a former federal human resources specialist, current retirement trainer, and benefits expert seeks to explain complicated retirement topics in a simplistic way, ensuring that everyone, regardless of education level or job position, understands. This series provides all of the answers to your retirement and benefits questions in an uncomplicated, easy-to-understand manner. No matter whether you're a human resources specialist or you have no idea how to even spell retirement, these books will make sure you finally understand.Finally Understand FERS is about the retirement system that's been in place for federal civilian employees since 1983. You'll learn what counts as creditable service, how your high-3 average salary is computed, how to calculate your retirement, federal / state taxes, the FERS annuity supplement, and more.I'm not sharing anything you can't find for yourself in any number of places. It is my intent to share it differently though; to boil it down to the simplest components and explain in an easy-to-understand manner. The book is short, intentionally. It's designed to teach you the basics of federal retirement over a cup of coffee. That upsets the gurus who think you need to read OPM regulations to learn about retirement. You really don't. Take an hour and learn about your pension on your terms! Factual information for regular people who aren't benefits experts.

How 401(k)s have gutted retirement security, from charging exorbitant hidden fees to failing to replace the income of traditional pensions Named one of PW's Top 10 for Business & Economics A retirement crisis is looming. In 2008, as the 401(k) fallout rippled across the country, horrified holders watched 25 percent of their funds evaporate overnight. Average 401(k) balances for those approaching retirement are too small to generate more than $4,000 in annual retirement income, and experts predict that nearly half of middle-class workers will be poor or near poor in retirement. But long before the recession, signs were mounting that few people would ever be able to accumulate enough wealth on their own to ensure financial security later in life. This hasn’t always been the case. Each generation of workers since the nineteenth century has had more retirement security than the previous generation. That is, until 1981, when shaky 401(k) plans began replacing traditional pensions. For the last thirty years, we’ve been advised that the best way to build one’s nest egg is to heavily invest in 401(k)-type programs, even though such plans were originally designed to be a supplement to rather than the basis for retirement. This financial experiment, promoted by neoliberals and aggressively peddled by Wall Street, has now come full circle, with tens of millions of Americans discovering that they would have been better off under traditional pension plans long since replaced. As James W. Russell explains, this do-it-yourself retirement system—in which individuals with modest incomes are expected to invest large sums of capital in order to reap the same rewards as high-end money managers—isn’t working. Social Insecurity tells the story of a massive and international retirement robbery—a substantial transfer of wealth from everyday workers to Wall Street financiers via tremendously costly hidden fees. Russell traces what amounts to a perfect swindle, from its ideological origins at Milton Friedman’s infamous Chicago School to its implementation in Chile under Pinochet’s dictatorship and its adoption in America through Reaganomics. Enraging yet hopeful, Russell offers concrete ideas on how individuals and society can arrest this downward spiral. From the Hardcover edition.
