Federal Employee Financial Planning

Making a complex system, simple.

There’s very few people who would dispute the idea that Federal Employee’s Retirement and benefits are complicated. Whether you’re FERS or CSRS, there’s a myriad of issues that affect your retirement and the more you know about them, the more you can prepare to overcome them.

We take great pride in being able to help Federal Employee’s navigate their career and retirement through comprehensive financial planning and specific tools. It takes a certain amount of expertise to help Federal Employees. Dane Financial, LLC has been set up in a way to specifically cater to those both in their career as a federal employee or during retirement.

Comprehensive Financial Planning

We follow a three-step process to create a comprehensive financial plan that allows us to align your financial goals with your values.

1.     First, we will determine what money means to you and how it fits into your life. Then we will organize your finances so you have a clear picture of where you currently stand. This includes both benefits as a federal employee and your finances outside of the federal system as well.

2.     Next, we will dial in your financial goals. What are your short, medium, and long-term goals? What are your dreams? How long do you plan to work with the federal government? Our goal is to produce tangible goals that we can work to achieve.

3.     Finally, we will create actionable steps to get you on a path towards financial independence and living the life you want to live.

This process can come in the form of a one-time financial plan where you follow the steps and recommendations yourself, or through ongoing financial planning with our help.


For the One-Time Financial Plan, we charge $1,500. Half paid up-front, half paid on plan completion.

For Ongoing Financial Planning, we charge an initial planning fee of $1,000, and then an ongoing monthly fee of $125.
