    50% of base pay at 20 years - one of the few retirement and pension plans out there.

    30 days of paid leave. Free Healthcare. Tuition assistance up to $4,500 a year. Do 20 years and get 50% retirement pension for life.

    If you’re on the old retirement plan you can retire at 20 yrs with a pension that’s basically pays half of your base salary. Unfortunately, this does not include your housing allowance, so your base salary is pretty low compared to industry.

    I won't be using it myself, but apparently it's decent. Thrift Savings Plan while you're in, then a pension when you complete 20 years.

    Pretty good for most people. Not everyone gets lifetime benefits now.
