The FERSGUIDE is authored by Dan Jamison, CPA. Dan Jamison is a nationally recognized subject-matter expert on retirement benefits for federal law enforcement officers, firefighters, air traffic controllers and those persons covered under the Special Category Employee (SCE) Provisions. Dan has been a CPA for over 30 years and holds active licenses in good standing in Virginia and Florida. Dan holds a Master’s Degree in Accounting from the University of Florida and earned his undergraduate accounting degree there as well. Dan retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 2013 after 21 years as a Special Agent Accountant. Dan started writing the FERSGUIDE over 20 years ago, when the document lurked around only in the FBI’s email system until the advent of the Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs) and then the FERSGUIDE spread from the JTTFs to the participating JTTF agencies where it quickly gained popularity outside of the FBI. Dan updates the FERSGUIDE annually with new content and updated figures.
