CSRS: Understanding Your Federal Retirement

We'll help you develop an understanding of the different parts of your CSRS, what they do, what they require of you, and how you can make the most of this opportunity to write the next chapter of your life.

What You'll Learn


The Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) offers Federal Employees one of the best retirement packages around today. As a CSRS, there are several factors you must take into consideration before retiring. Are you sure you know about ALL of your Civil Service Retirement benefits?
