E-7 Retiring at 20 Years of Service
Typical congressional retirement pensionsMembers of Congress are vested (meaning entitled) to receive pension benefits from either CSRS or FERS after five years of service. They are generally able to collect benefits at an earlier age than other federal employees -- with fewer years of service. And their benefits are greater -- though, in all fairness, they contribute more for the benefits than regular federal employees. ~ Bankrate
