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.
Option to choose best plan for you
