    • Does anyone know the pension breakdown for a Border Patrol Agent. I want to do a comparison of the benefits between being a BPA and NYPD.

      Thanks

      • Good luck with that. With benefits being under fire during a very cost conscious time, changes with either organization are likely. That said NYPD has fairly generous pension as well as medical benefits. A little better than the Feds., but is currently under review for city savings.
        Go for the job you want. In the end, the benefits will be close; but not one being so much better than the other that it would make a difference in your choice. Do what YOU want....hope you find it.

            This maybe irrelevant but I spoke with a gentleman who was with the NYPD for 20yrs and loved every minute of it then he moved out to NJ working as a PO in Franklin Lakes where he eventually plans on retiring. Just to reiterate what Wentwest said the NYPD guy told me to choose a job which you would find yourself enjoying after 20yrs.

              • Not any freeze that is in print anyway. the hiring is sort of analogous to running. For awhile it was a sprint, then it became a cross county run, now that runner is stuck in some quicksand! It isn't over, just alot slower. Now it demands patience and perseverance. Remember, we shall never, never give up!

                      1.7% per year of service for the 1st 20 years, 1% for all following years.
                      you have to do 20 years to get a full retirement if you are 50 years of age, 25 years if you are under 50 years of age. Mandatory retirement at age 57


                      Ex: for someone who is hired at age 33 they will be able to retire at 53 since they are above 50 years of age and they have completed 20 years of service. They will get 34% (1.7 x 20= 34) of their highest 3 year average. For BPA positions that means your base pay plus locality and AUO pay. This is the only pay factored into your retirement. Night diff sunday pay or 45 act play no part.

                      You also get SRS pay until you are age 62. It is half the money you would get from the SSA at age 62 if you work 20 years.

                      You also get a 401k type plan that the gov matches up to 5%.

                      Your biggest factor in your retirement with the federal gov is the TSP. If you put the max into every pay period from the start of your career to the end, and the market does well, you will have a very good retirement. The problem with that is when you first start you are not paid a lot of money. You will only make around 60k your first year. And in a place like where I live that is not sheet.

                      Either way you will have a decent retirement with the nypd or the usbp. I think you are looking at this the entirely wrong way. If you like the type of work you do with the nypd you will not like the usbp and vice versa. You need to go with the type of work that you will think you'll enjoy. Not the one with the best retirement plan today. Because all the the plans will be changing in the future.
                      No you misunderstood me. I'm already NYPD and theres no plan on leaving. My brother is a Border Patrol Agent and I was just curious on how his benefits stack up to mine.

                        So... why didn't you ask YOUR brother and do the comparison? After all, he's YOUR brother. He would know. Kind of sad to ask a public forum when you have your own blood to reference.

                          Of course I can ask him, but where's the fun in that. We're brothers and there's always a bit of rivalry there.

                          • Need some help: Response

                            A few of you folks replied, in addition to others sending me some very well pointed private messages. Through some of your excellent points and guidance, I have decided to stick it out where I am currently at. A big point in this was the fact of losing my fed time and starting over, especially with the new retirement rates starting this next year. It's painful being somewhere that you dread, but at least I am currently serving on the midnight shift and will hopefully be picked up prior to rotating baclk to days (where the command element is the worst part ofit all). So for now, I will put on my big boy pants, grit my teeth, and push through. A warm hearted thank you to those that offered genuine concern and advice. Your wisdom and insight has helped me to make a much better decision for my family overall.
