Meanwhile, consumer choice is quite often an illusion in a corporate oligarchy. The freedom to choose between paying $3.75/gallon at an Exxon station or $3.75/gallon at a Shell station is not really freedom of choice.
"Congress created the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) in 1986, and it became effective on January 1, 1987. Since that time, new Federal civilian employees who have retirement coverage are covered by FERS.
FERS is a retirement plan that provides benefits from three different sources: a Basic Benefit Plan, Social Security and the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). Two of the three parts of FERS (Social Security and the TSP) can go with you to your next job if you leave the Federal Government before retirement. The Basic Benefit and Social Security parts of FERS require you to pay your share each pay period. Your agency withholds the cost of the Basic Benefit and Social Security from your pay as payroll deductions. Your agency pays its part too. Then, after you retire, you receive annuity payments each month for the rest of your life.
The TSP part of FERS is an account that your agency automatically sets up for you. Each pay period your agency deposits into your account amount equal to 1% of the basic pay you earn for the pay period. You can also make your own contributions to your TSP account and your agency will also make a matching contribution. These contributions are tax-deferred. The Thrift Savings Plan is administered by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board."
also , unless your brother in law produced the paperwork for you to see I doubt he is drawing 70% as retirement. He would have to have worked 40+years to even come close.
on a side note I am a retired federal employee. Your brother in law should be ashamed if in fact he sat around and shooting the breeze instead of working. Guess I was brough up differnt. Days work for a days pay. People like him should be fired.
