100 times better and more futuristic compared to social security.
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.
401k match, you all get Railroad Retirement, which is way better that standard social security. also have Company Pension match.
I heard that the company has very good retirement benefit plan.
Railroad retirement is unmatched, top notch
'old school' pension vested after 5 years, Railroad Retirement not Social Security; much better
When you retire, you keep the same salary you were making during active employment. Plus spouse gets retirement also.
Pension and Railroad retirement make for a very nice full retirement.
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 Security...you'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
