    It is the little known secrets regarding the retirement system that keep many citizens in the poverty category! Many states require that the retiree pay extra fees for attempting to draw double retirement pensions from military service and private employment. These fees are easily avoidable and a prospective retiree must know the steps to take into order to retire with enough money to survive. It is important to remember that finances received at retirements may not be seen as earned income and thus, may be tax exempt! Therefore you are not taxed on retirement benefits that you worked all your life for unless; you are incorrectly reporting these as earned income.

    For example, if a retiree of the railroad system is managed and salaries paid by the city or state government then the receipt of dual pensions is subject to government rules and applicable taxes. If you similarly were employed as a department of defense DOD employee, you can easily draw retirement from the DOD as well as an organization outside the DOD.

Doing so would allow you to retire earlier which means younger with the same if not more retirement money.
