FERS Benefits Training Classes For Agencies

The need for information and benefits support for federal employees is still growing. Does your agency want to offer your employees information and training regarding their benefits? We provide full FERS benefits classes for agencies looking to provide their employees the resources they need to understand and plan their benefits. Our courses cover essential federal benefits topics, including:

  • Everything you need to know about FERS benefits and FERS pension
  • TSP: investment options, ways to allocate, limits, and what to know before you withdraw
  • Health, dental, vision and planning it all with Medicare
  • Group Life and Group Long-term Care
  • Buying back military time
  • Managing sick and annual leave
  • Survivor benefits
  • COLA in retirement
  • FERS Supplement
  • Social Security

FERS Class Options

Our teaching style adapts to how your agency learns best. Below are a few ways we can plan a FERS class for your agency.

Live, in-person training:

If your agency is back in the office and you’d like to provide training in a live session, this is, in our opinion, the optimum setting. Employees are more likely to ask their questions and often benefit from the questions of others that they don’t think to ask. Participants have direct access to the instructor if they want to ask a personal question.

Virtual training:

At Federal Benefits Made Simple, we’ve mastered the ways of the virtual presentation. Our live virtual trainings can be held either as the full, 7-hour session, as if you are in person, or as two, 3 1/2 hour sessions split across two days. You can plan for two morning or afternoon sessions on consecutive days, or a morning on Day One and an afternoon on Day Two. Hourly breaks are included in all sessions.

If your agency has employees in multiple locations, this option may work best for you. Class materials are emailed directly to participants.

Hybrid - In-person/virtual training:

Your agency may include employees who wish to attend in person with others attending virtually. The hybrid session provides for both allowing employees to attend the in-person, live session while being offered simultaneously to those who wish to attend virtually. Those attending virtually benefit from the live interaction while also getting their specific questions answered. If you have employees who learn best in person, this is a great way to satisfy the needs of many employees while offering training at multiple locations. Class materials are mailed to the agency for those attending in person and emailed directly to virtual participants.
