    Exceptional 401a plan with better than average contribution from employer

    Their 401 A is good. The require you put into it every pay period. I believe they put double what you put. So it racks up fast.

    It is through TIAA CREF and they have good fund offerings, I personally prefer Vanguard however.

    The great thing about the retirement plan is they match the employee contribution at a 2 for 1 rate.

    put in 5% automatically (it's a requirement) and they match an additional 10%. It's absurdly incredible. TIAA

    Uses Public Employee Retirement Association (PERA) so there are not social security contributions.

    Having the pension with the employer multiplier is definitely a great benefit and provides for substantial security for the long term
