Federal Benefits - “You don’t know what you don’t know!”
Recorded version available until November 8, 2014

Featured presenter: Tammy Flanagan, NITP Senior Benefits Director

Top 5 opportunities you probably didn’t know about your Federal Retirement Benefits

Did you know that:

  1. You can take withdrawals from your TSP before age 59 ½ without a tax penalty
  2. If you are covered under CSRS or CSRS Offset, you can contribute money to a special OPM retirement fund and then move it to a Roth IRA
  3. If you retire under age 62 from FERS, you will receive a temporary benefit from the Office of Personnel Management that will take the place of Social Security retirement until you reach age 62.
  4. You can shelter up to $3,300 / year (+$1,000 more if you are 55 or over) if you are covered under a self only enrollment and up to $6,550 / year (+$1,000 more if you are 55 and over) from taxes if you are covered under a self and family enrollment in a health savings account if you are covered under a high deductible health plan.
  5. You don’t have to enroll in Medicare at age 65, but you probably should.
