Types of Government Retirement Group Investments

FERS provides pension benefits from multiple sources that include federal Benefit Plan, Social Security and Thrift Savings Plan.

If your career takes you to the private sector, your TSP and Social Security benefits will follow you.

Once you retire, you may begin drawing on the annuity payments provided by the Basic Benefit Plan.

SERS – State Employees Retirement System:

Retirement savings fund for those enrolled prior to January 1, 1987.  SERS will match the annuity contributions of its member up to 10% of basic pay.

Also, members are able to utilize the Thrift Savings Plan. Furthermore, another bonus is that members do not owe social security tax, disability, or survivor tax.

Note: SERS requires it members to pay Medicare tax.

Recent Cybersecurity Issues at Retire OPM.gov


The Cyber Security Office at discovered two major data breaches at the government website. In 2015, Office of Personnel Management applicant background check information was stolen.

This included Social Security numbers for nearly 20 million retirement benefit applicants.  Lost laptops were to blame for the RetireOnline hack, not a data breach of the servers.

As a result, proactive measures are taken to insure identity management remains secure and users have full identity theft protection.
