    Good 401(k) funds with Vanguard, Railroad Retirement instead of Social Security means more money stashed away for the future, and defined benefit pension plan.

    Rail road retirement is one of the best plans you can get into. You pay more in taxes into ehat is called tier 2 but you don't pay social security.

    As a railroad employee, you no longer contribute to Social're with the Railroad Retirement System. Better benefits and a much more stable system. As a salaried employee, you can participate in a 401(k) and a company retirement program as well
