    Retirement - TSP (401K), Retirement
    Housing cost - Variable based on location
    Health care
    Con - Retirement is all or nothing. The Army is really good about building an ethos of family but its a government organization. They will cut you just as fast as the private sector. The difference is people cant adapt that fast and it usually runs their lives

    The best thing about the benefits is that when you retire is that you continue coverage if you elect to.

    Clothing allowance, housing allowance, food allowance. Free healthcare, TSP, GI bill. Supportive administrative staff. Serve and work for a purpose.

    Stability and longevity... Honorable service provides a minimum level of care through the VA, while a career provides a means for life.

    Current Employee in Macdill AFB, Florida

    The medical benefits are superb! The Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is also a great perk.

    The dental plan for dependents is marginal in my opinion and doesn't cover much beyond cleanings.

    Current Employee in Fort Bliss, Texas

    Great Benefits. Full medical and dental with retirement plan.

    My medical and dental are both covered. My family is also provided coverage which also includes discounts on prescription.
