If I count up everything that the Federal government (as my employer) pays into my retirement, it equals:
Social Security Employer Tax: 6.2%
FERS Employer Contribution: 11.7%
TSP Matching Contribution: 5.0%
Total: 22.9% of salary
For law enforcement and other employees subject to mandatory early retirement, employer contributions towards retirement benefits equal nearly 40% of salary every year.
