When it comes to financial benefits, the Navy amounts to much more than a competitive paycheck. Like significant tax incentives. Retirement income. And, of course, comprehensive health-care coverage.
The health benefits are great. However, some of the doctors you are required to see, are sometimes not as good.
The best thing is the variety of benefits offered.
Great benefits for active duty and family. 401K (TSP) match up to 5%.
The United States Navy, like the other services in the Department of Defense, is one of the last major institutions to offer a defined benefits plan retirement program. While I did not personally stay in the Active Duty long enough to qualify outright, my continued time in the Reserve will work towards defined benefits.
College Tuition and a signup bonus, if you score high enough on the asvab you can get an additional college stipend.
Great benefits all around. Higher Education, training, housing, healthcare, retirement (which is changing), full access to resources to help for literally any situation.
Slow medical process but you get awesome housing benefits and never really have to worry about food. Not bad!
Free educational benefits up to 16 credit hours a year
