Author: ArashishoI seen over Year, you put your bode and soul on line, for a small retirement if you make it to the Years. and some get 400,000 a year for play Golf :-)
Author: Faecageso you can retire after 2 years?
Author: DisarI'm sitting here reading the comments and its obvious that most of them don't understand how the new system is going to work. You still receive a monthly retirement check immediately after retirement, its just lower than the current system. (2.0% of base pay for every year you served i.e. serve 20 years = 40%). now that's the "bad" news. The good news is that now they are going to do a monthly deposit into your TSP account that has the possibility to grow exponentially. I already put 10% of my pay into the TSP so once this system goes into effect I will then be having 15% of my base pay deposited into my TSP account with no more money out of my pocket, giving me the opportunity to have WAY more during my retirement years then just a stipend check.
Author: YorgThe only thing I had about this system is they are not implementing it till 2018. I wish they would give us the option to opt in right now. I'm missing out on 18 months of that extra 5% going into my TSP.

Author: Gojinthat sucks
Author: Bragamiwhat a bunch of BS! The government saying they're paying too much for military retirees who do 20 years. How about cutting the budget in another arena instead of veterans who serve 20+ years? And they sell it like they're doing us a favor...garbage
