    Horrible Retirement setup. You cannot borrow against it at anytime even during extreme emergencies. You have to no longer be an employee to gain access to your hard earned monies.

    APS will match your pension once you have been vested--after 10 years.

    If you like TRS then this is the company for you but definitely not a 401K got to do that yourself.
