After the incredible response we had to William Carrington’s first episode, he returns for a second episode to break down the steps necessary to successfully make the leap, both financially and emotionally, into a fulfilling retirement.

Hear William discuss:

  • how to come up with a budget for retirement, even if you don’t know where you’ll retire
  • why the first couple of years of retirement might be more expensive than expected
  • when to take withdrawals from your TSP, pension, and social security 
  • the dollar amount most FS retirees budget annually to live on each year
  • why the FS pension and healthcare benefits are so valuable and how hard it is to match those benefits in the private sector
  • what inflation does to retirement savings
  • the one question you can ask yourself now to ensure your retirement is fulfilling

…..and so much more!
