Beware of Federal Retirement and Benefits Scams – Never Pay to Retire

External companies have attempted to contact CBP employees and offices offering retirement and benefits services at a personal cost to employees. Such services include, but are not limited to, annuity estimates, retirement case processing, retirement seminars, and Thrift Savings Plan advising.

There is no cost to federal employees for processing or counseling regarding retirement and benefits. All official communications regarding your federal retirement and benefits will come directly from CBP.

If you receive or have received correspondence from an external company or agency regarding your retirement and benefits, or if you have any questions or concerns, email to confirm the sender is vetted and approved.
