    Very good health care, dental and vision. Excellent retirement plan that transfers throughout the government.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Tso in South Bend, Indiana

    Free uniforms! This is a federal job, so there is a pretty good benefits package. Health ins, dental, vision, life ins, retirement, night/sunday differential pay, and most importantly, free uniforms,

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Transportation Security Officer in Lafayette, Louisiana

    Best would be all the coverage(medical, dental, vision, all the different savings plans, 401k,) Worst would be, having all this & never being able to check on it all. Never had time, nor knew how.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former FAM in Newark, New Jersey

    You can't beat the benefits at the Federal Government. You get a retirement, cheap insurance, and lots of savings options.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Columbus, Ohio

    Wasn't bad, wasn't great. Got about 8 plans to choose from. Pretty highly priced.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current TSO in Houston, Texas

    TSP is a 401K they match you up to 5%, TSA gives you 4 hours of Annual Leave the first 5 years of service then after you will receive 6 hours of Annual leave per pay period. After 15 years of service you receive 8 hours of annual leave.

  • Aug 09, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Tso in Orlando, Florida

    Pro: Good healthcare but not as good as some other federal agencies. 2 weeks of paid leave per year Paid sick time Access to a thrift savings plan (essentially like a 401k) with contribution matching. Holidays are paid off you work on the holiday or not if you are full time. Part time employees receive full benefits outside of being paid for holidays they don't work. Con: Using your paid sick time usually leads to disciplinary action unless you register FMLA. Using your vacation days is almost always extremely difficult. Retiring from tsa doesn't meet you a good person like other federal jobs.
