Federal Government Employees

As a Federal Employee, your retirement and benefits are COMPLEX.

Federal government employees’ benefits are particularly complex and few advisors truly have an in-depth knowledge.  Finding a financial planner that specializes in Federal Employee benefits to work with can be a daunting task, but Ellevation is here to simplify that for you!  We’ve spent decades educating ourselves and continuously receive specialized training to become your number one resource.  We work with employees from a number of agencies in the DMV and all over the country and have a thorough understanding of their often-nuanced retirement options. We can help you understand your options and create a financial plan to achieve your goals now and in retirement.  If you’re ready to take control of your finances and create a plan for your future, let’s talk.

Our Expertise Includes:


We have helped federal government employees understand their pension options under both the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) and the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS).  We will work one on one with you to analyze your potential retirement scenarios, including early retirement, using a FERS Supplement, and how your pension interacts with Social Security.

Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) Options

We will collaborate with you in selecting the best TSP strategy in light of your overall situation and retirement goals.  The Thrift Savings Plan is a key part of your Federal Government retirement benefits. Make sure you understand your options and, more specifically, which options work best for you.  We can help provide you clarity and confidence so you can live your best life now and during retirement and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.


As a federal government employee, you have access to the largest group life insurance program in the world, the Federal Employees’ Government Life Insurance (FEGLI).  We will help you determine whether you need coverage in retirement, and if so, identify the coverage available to you as a retiree so you can select the optimal combination for your situation.

Early Retirement

If you are a federal employee considering early retirement, we will work with you to determine if early retirement is feasible and, if so, draft a road map to get you there.  As part of our planning, we will help you create a budget for retirement, calculate your retirement income, and address potential red flags such as age and TSP restrictions.

Your Personalized Plan

Whether you plan to retire early or not, we will build a financial plan to help you achieve your goals.  Beyond the benefits specific to federal government employees, your comprehensive plan will incorporate your other needs such as budgeting, cash flow, tax planning, and estate planning.
