As a federal employee, you are entitled to a range of benefits, Appalachian Federal Benefit Resources is here to help you make the most of them. The retirement guide will provide you with an overview of the key benefits available to you and how you can optimize them for a financially secure retirement.

Federal Retirement System (FERS): As a federal employee, you are likely enrolled in the FERS, which consists of three components: the Basic Retirement Plan, Social Security, and the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP).
