    5% TSP match is not the best but it is better than some 3% companies.

    Medical coverage is the #1 benefit to me. I know I can take my children to a military treatment facility and it will not cost me anything for them to be seen. If they have to see a provider outside the MTF the payments are reasonable.

    The medical benefits used to be good, but now the Air Force has less people in total and the overall time to see a primary care manager has increased substantially. Just to see my PCM take no less than 30 to 45 days. If the PCM is not available, I'm sent off base to an urgent care, which creates gaps in continuity of care. Job training and education are by far the best benefits I've experienced, but that remains to be seen since i've only been in the military for 20 plus years.

    Best thing about the benefits package is the medical insurance. Second best is the life insurance. Third best is the dental insurance.
