Financial Planning for Federal Employees

We know that federal families want and deserve answers, and we want to help you sustain your financial independence. That’s why we created this website with educational material. Our mission is to help you plan through research-based strategies so you can get the most of out of retirement.

We are a highly specialized group of fiduciary financial planners that work with families with one or more federal employees. We provide guidance to a number of wealthy families who value the objectivity that comes with engaging a small, fee-only firm focused on their unique needs and concerns.

As “middle class millionaires”, families who work with us have been successful savers and now want to optimize their wealth as they head into and through retirement. They have specific concerns around developing the right withdrawal and income strategy, reducing and saving on taxes, making sure they’re invested correctly along the way, and planning around the legacy they may leave their family.

As a client, our collaborative team of professionals all work for you and with you through all changes in the economy, markets, and your life. The power of our team is behind you, and our combined experienced is geared towards bringing you better outcomes to help you feel confident and prepared for your future.

Federal Retirement Planning

We help our clients reach their financial goals without the risk of running out of money. We want to give you clarity and confidence so you can spend time doing things that matter most to you.

A Refreshing Approach to Planning

Why do federal employees and retirees choose to work with us? Because it starts with who you are, not us. Your goals and dreams aren’t just about pie charts and numbers. They’re about what really matters to you: your work and family, the way you want to live, and the legacy you want to leave behind. The process of developing a financial plan that’s right for you means we come to an understanding of your hopes, dreams and choices, the tools available to you, and what you really need to meet your goals. We involve you in the process so you understand how your money supports your goals. And, together, we develop a plan that’s just right for you.

Focusing on Feds

We are specialized in serving federal employees. Our planners have experience and expertise with FERS benefits. We’ll help you utilize the right options available to you within FERS and your other financial means, to help you maximize your desired results, enhance your lifestyle, and achieve financial independence.

Fiduciary Planners

The details matter in retirement. We help clients with: retirement income planning, tax bracket management, investments, FERS benefits, legacy/insurance planning, scenario modeling, and more. Clients appreciate that we’re able to both plan and implement these efforts on their behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of families do you usually work with?

Most of the families that we serve are/were dual income households, have a net worth of around $2M+, and are retired or are 2 years or less from retirement.

Do you focus only on retirement planning?

Yes, most of our clients are late-career federal leaders/executives planning their separation from service. Some retire fully, others choose to contribute toward something else in retirement.

How often do we meet with you and our planning team?

As much as you’d like to see us. We’re boutique by design. We communicate with our clients multiple times in a year, and then any time there’s something you’d like to discuss with us.

Do we both need to be/have been federal employees?

No, many of the families we work with have one member with federal benefits and the other that works in the private sector. Our planners have expertise in this combined planning as well.

Do you only work with families local to Washington, DC?

Nope! We have clients across the country, even some currently stationed internationally.

Do you give us reporting on our accounts and how we’re doing?

Absolutely, we organize our clients’ financial information with thorough and easy to understand reporting through our secure client portal, as well as offering logins directly with the custodian.
