One of the few remaining pension plans available anymore. it's a tremendous, lifetime benefit that can be used as early as someone's late-thirties.

Best: Retirement plan has recently changed to 401K. Members who don't do 20 years will still have something to show.

The military retirement plan is almost Second to non when it come to benefits. You receive healthcare and dental. You also can retire after serving in the military for 20 years. Most jobs you cant retire before your 62 years old. You can also access whats called The GI Bill which will pay for a 4 year degree, plus monthly pay for your self or you can pass that benefit to a child or spouse.
