Following your link to this pension plan I find The American Interest quotes Financial Times
Following that link I find I must sign up and pay money to read the article. Not gonna do it.As well as the overall financial burden, the system is controversial because only 17 per cent of personnel actually serve the required 20 years needed to qualify.
I would like to see some factual data about that statement. What does the number actually include?
I'd hate to think that 83% of my fellow annuitants got over somehow and didn't have to do 20. I would have thought they would have let me know so I could join them.
About that rose garden, I have seen stuff over the years claiming that TSP participants would be millionaires after 30 years. How has that worked out for you 30 year people?
