No outside vendors, financial planners or retirement counselors please. Pinnacle Personnel Services, LLC prides itself in not soliciting attendees or selling any type of financial products/services.  These sessions are 100% instructional training and **limited to federal employees.**

Featuring Deborah Hatch, CEO and primary instructor for both Pinnacle Personnel Services, LLC., and its subsidiary Federal Benefits Services, LLC.  Presenter brings experience garnered from working in and with the federal government for over 24 years.  First as a federal benefits and human resources specialist within Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense; now as a government contractor.  She has presented hundreds of retirement seminars, for dozens of federal agencies worldwide.  She has trained thousands of employees: special provisions and traditional, title 5, 10, 32, and 38.    This is the same information normally presented in the classroom but being provided virtually because of the current social situation and COVID-19 pandemic. 

The training includes:

  • Creditable service (civilian & military time),
  • Retirement options and eligibility,
  • Computation of the high-3 average salary, federal annuity, and FERS supplement;
  • Selection of the optimum retirement date;
  • Survivor benefit elections & death benefits;
  • Cost of living adjustments;
  • Overview of Social Security retirement; and

This is a live virtual session.  Not a pre-recorded webinar.  You will have an opportunity to ask questions during the session via a chat room.  I will email a link to the virtual classroom the day you sign up, 24 hours and again 1 hour prior to training. You will receive copies of the slides / handout the day prior to training.

You may find it helpful to have a small notebook as well as a copy of your Social Security statement, a current pay stub, and one or two recent SF-50 personnel actions, in front of you for the training.
