FederalHandbooks.com was launched with one simple goal – to give federal employees the very best information available about pay, benefits, retirement planning, career decisions and much, much more!   And to provide it to you in a series of straightforward, easy-to-understand handbooks – for FREE!


Frequently Asked Questions

How can we do this?
Easy. We have a very small but dedicated staff of former feds and senior federal editors and writers who, over the years, have developed an expertise in the federal marketplace that no one else can match. And by offering these handbooks in an electronic format (PDF), our costs are almost nothing.

Why do we offer FREE handbooks?
That’s also easy to answer. Because, as only former feds can – we believe in federal service. It’s that simple. We believe in what you do. And we believe that you have a right – a fundamental right – to know what your federal benefits are. And we don’t think you should have to pay for that information. And that’s why we launched FederalHandbooks.com.

Can I get printed copies of the handbooks?
Yes, as we recently launched a print on demand store on Lulu.com where you can order printed copies of the handbooks. Click here to visit store. We strongly recommend viewing the handbooks on our site BEFORE purchasing them as this is a NON-REFUNDABLE item (unless damaged upon receipt). Click here to review the return policy.
