    It's dependent on the grade you earn while serving as well as how much time you have in; 15 years can get you around 40% of base pay per month, 20 years is 50% of base pay per month, and 30 years will get you 75% per month. However, this does not include other allowances the individual would have normally earned, much of which is non-taxable. This offsets the income of the individual so that unless retiring in very senior grades, will be unable to maintain a high quality of life without having to work elsewhere.

    Matching benefits, life insurance offered at a rate that is tailored to your choices when you go through accepting an offer of employment or what is called open season.

    There are good pension and retirement benefits available. The Thrift Savings Plan provides flexibility on how you choose to invest your contributions and the government provides matching funds up to a certain percentage.
