The ‘7 rules’ of retirement


When people close in on their retirement date many become anxious about life after a steady, biweekly paycheck. The old Civil Service Retirement System provided a much more generous pension/annuity than the Federal Employees Retirement System, which covers most working feds. So what to do?

We asked John Grobe, a former fed and benefits specialist, to crunch some numbers — the numbers you need to know before you retire. Grobe will be our guest today on our Your Turn radio show. He will discuss the “Rule of 7 Rules” to protect your retirement nest egg.

The show airs at 10 a.m. EDT on www.federalnewsradio.com or on 1500 AM in the D.C.
