“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”   -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

With summer fast approaching, you may be planning your vacation more diligently than your retirement.   Don’t overlook retirement planning for too long.  Ask yourself these questions:

When will I retire?  Am I taking steps now to save for retirement?  Have I planned for the unexpected?

Now, you may be thinking: Retirement Planning?  I am still building my career, family and lifestyle.

Time passes quickly and here are steps to insure that you are prepared.

  • Review your personnel records
  • Request estimates of unpaid deposits
  • Find out your retirement eligibility date
  • Attend a retirement planning seminar
  • Use the TSP website to monitor your savings and stay informed
  • Review your insurance needs now and for the future
  • Consider “what-if” situations, develop a plan
  • Review your annual statement of benefits
