With all of the changes in United Stats financial markets, many of America’s Federal employees find it difficult to navigate this country’s federal employees retirement system. Many federal employees are looking for help to understand their benefits and their options in retirement. Cothrine Financial has decided to offer a helping hand, by offering free workshops on the local college campuses.
“Often times, employees don’t know where to turn to for help so they begin the journey to find someone who can explain these benefits and give some guidance along the way. I’m grateful to be that person for so many federal employees in the St. Louis area,” said John Cothrine, founder of Cothrine Financial.
Some employees search for answers through the internet, some are advised by their friends, and others direct their questions through their HR Departments. The financial workshops will offer another option for those who may want to ask more detailed questions in an educational environment.
Tammy Flannagan, of Goverment Executive states “Even if you do have deep knowledge of retirement rules, practices and procedures, there might be a few things you don’t know.”
“We know that education is the first step for federal employees to feel confident about making the right decisions. I believe it is important to get the right people to educate our federal employees about their retirement options. So I contacted a federally approved educator, who has been selected to provide pre-retirement training to federal employees throughout the country, and I’ve asked them to come to St. Louis to share their objective perspective.” Cothrine continued.
This event is open for federal employees and their spouses.
