One of the most daunting tasks federal employees face as they anticipate and plan for retirement is filling out the paperwork required to depart service. Those who order the hard copy, discover a one inch thick packet that covers everything, including much of which has nothing to do with their personal situation. As many try to digest this pile of not so easy to understand material, they often become anxious and overwhelmed. We at GPIS have witnessed individuals delaying their desired retirement date because of the overwhelming nature of the process. Don’t let this be you!
Planning for Retirement Can Be Stressful
A couple of years ago, I was asked by a postal employee to come to her home and help fill out her paperwork. When I arrived, she was almost hyperventilating because of the stress. She had pages scattered all over her kitchen table as she tried to figure out what to do. Within a few short minutes, I sorted from the pile to less than a dozen pages that she needed and within 45 minutes we had her application to retire ready to go. Stress relieved!
