    Most people my age (30s) don't stay long enough to become vested in the pension plan. You can opt to participate in a pre-tax 457 plan and take it with you.

    Not sure the Florida retirement system is going to last at the rate the Republicans are taking the state.

    Very good options to choose from; however, Legislature and Governor required state employees to contribute after hiring; I once received a 9% contribution from the employer and now it's only 3%

    Was good but they are slowly whittling away at it.

    Required 3 percent of your pay is taken for retirement. They do not take out social security for an ops position.
