    Thrift savings plan which is similar to 401K with matching fund - first three percent dollar for dollar, 4th and 5th percent 50 cents on the dollar

    3-part retirement plan: 401k with matching up to 5%, pension, and social security. The 401k matching only goes up to 4%.

    good amount when I retire. However, under the FRS option- some of my SSA retirement benefits will reduce my pension which is not fair as I paid social security taxes all along

    If you contribute to the Thrift Saving Account, SSA will match up to a certain percentage. The matching program allows you to grow your retirement dollars pretty quickly.

    It is an agency that is centered on retirement after all. Federal retirement was changed such that the former, most generous retirement program is nor available to new employees.
