A Decent CSRS On Line Calculator

In one respect calculating your retirement benefit is relatively simple.  You can, in theory, find everything you need on the Office of Personnel Management site:

www.opm.gov

But some other calculators are better organized, especially to take into account special circumstances such as law enforcement, firemen, etc.  I recommend this one for quick checks and retirement “what ifs”.

RP’s advice for the day?  Retire as soon as practical … waiting seldom is worth the small gains … my only regret is I waited several years longer than I needed to.
