    best thing about retirement it builds as long as your working and it will be there when you get to retire or when you take a early retirement.

    As far as pensions go its ok. The VA does match up to 5% plus 1% automatic for 401k. Retirement is based upon: annual salary X .01 or 0.011 (retire after 62)X # years of service.

    Excellent retirement plan. A definite draw for most employee whom work for VA. Both Federal retirement and Thrift Savings plan with employer matching fund program.

    I did not work with the VA long enough to benefit from their retirement plan but as with all federal agencies after a specified period of time and once you meet the required age limit you are able to retire.

    Phenomenal to me. I pay in x dollars. Govt puts in 3x dollars/pay period. This is then put into an annuity when you separate. Previous employer had nothing like it. Put in very safe investments so not huge , but its significant over time
