Benefits of Working for Uncle Sam

  • Job Security -  In this uncertain economy, job security is a valuable commodity.  You have a much higher risk of being termined within the private sector.  

  • Good Salary - Federal employees receive competitive salaries

  • Health Insurance - Several health insurance plans to choose from - and Uncle Sam pays about 70% of the premium.  Take this into retirement with you too!

  • Generous Pensions -  federal employees have access to retirement through the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS).  Retired employees receive an annuity, complemented by Social Security benefits and participation in the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), which offers 401(k)-type investment options. 

  • Life Insurance - no physical - no question - you're covered.

  • Long-Term Care - yep - it's available, and at a reasonable cost.

  • Flexible Spending Account - choose an amount (up to a maximum) for health costs (not covered by insurance) or childcare costs - and those costs are reduced from your tax base, thus reducing the amount of taxes you pay.

  • Vacation and Holidays -  During the first 3 years of service, federal employees receive 13 days of vacation per year.  After 3 years and until 15 years, they receive 19 days per year.  Once they have 15 years of federal service, they begin receiving 26 days of vacation per year.  This, in addition to the federal holidays adds to the time off.   Additionally, federal employees accrue 13 days of sick leave per year - which can be used for their own illness/medical appointments or the illness/medical appointments of their family members.

This, in addition to the federal holidays adds to the time off. Additionally, federal employees accrue 13 days of sick leave per year.
