Finally Understand Your Federal Retirement & Benefits

A Virtual Course Bringing it all Together

Most federal employees are unprepared for their retirement. It can be complicated and confusing. Knowing what choices to make with retirement, survivor benefits, health/life insurance, and your Thrift Savings Program can be complicated.

It doesn’t have to be confusing.

Navigating Federal Retirement Decisions Can Seem Tough at First.

Life happens fast. 

Before we know it, we’re eligible to retire but know nothing about the process, our benefits, or how to take retirement from a dream to a reality.

Agencies aren’t staffed to provide this training like they once were. 

There’s too much information. 

There are too many myths and misunderstandings. 

There is too much bad information. 

It’s overwhelming.

That’s why I created the

Finally Understand Retirement & Benefits Course


Hi I’m Debbie.

I am an experienced human capital and federal benefits specialist.

22 years’ personal experience working with and for the federal government has made me a subject matter expert on retirement, insurances, Social Security, the Thrift Savings Program, and Medicare. 

I have established a solid consulting business built upon reputation and service.  Over the past 12 years, I have taught thousands of federal employees, in dozens of federal agencies world-wide.

I am skilled at simplifying complicated topics. 

It’s what I do. 

Nothing makes me happier than having a student tell me they finally understand.  That they can actually retire. 

We both typically get emotional!

That’s why I do what I do.

My services are unique because I am focused on ensuring every single person (from the housekeeping aide to the director; from the new employee to the person close to retirement) understand their benefits.

I am a human resources specialist.  You shouldn’t have to be.

I promise . . .

In my Finally Understand Retirement & Benefits Course, I explain complicated topics in a simplistic way, ensuring that everyone understands, regardless of education level or job position.
