Adele's Federal Retirement Consulting

How long are the appointments?

Generally 1 hour for a regular retirement. For medical retirements, there is one appointment that is 1 hour, and a second appointment that is 2 hours.

Do I need to bring all of my forms?

Yes, gather as much information as possible to have the most accurate calculation possible. If you are unable to find a specific form, we will do our best to work around it.

May I bring my spouse to the appointment with me?

Yes, it is definitely best to bring your spouse. There is a lot of information that we will cover, and it is helpful to have someone else there with you.

What if I decide not to retire immediately?

That's ok. We can keep your information on file. Then, when you decide you are ready, give us a call. We can then complete the forms, give them to you in a very short, 15 minute appointment. Then you can turn them in, in a timely manner.

I came and saw you a few years ago for a calculation, my pay and other things have changed and I am curious what I would make in retirement now. Can you recalculate my projected retirement now with the new information?

Yes, I can recalculate your information and give you an updated retirement projection, with a fee of $50 payable with cash or major credit cards.

Can you calculate sick leave balances?

Yes, I can tell you what left over sick leave you will have to use before retirement.

Can you calculate CSRS Offset?

Yes, that is something I work with on a very regular basis.

Can you provide information on military buy back?

Yes, I will provide the forms and the information to complete the buy back process.

How soon before retirement should I have you calculate my retirement?

Six months is an ideal time frame. However, the sooner the better.

How long after my retirement date will I receive my first retirement check?

Generally between the sixth and eighth week you will receive your first partial check. By six months, you are in full retirement status.

  • I just wanted to let you know that I went in for my appointment at personnel last Thursday. It went really smooth. I was the second one out of there, everyone else had to go run something or get another form of some kind. I felt sorry for them. My paperwork went right through. You are amazing and I appreciate your help.
