Community Information (What it’s Like to Live in Columbia, South Carolina):
Columbia, South Carolina, is a traditionally Southern place with a modern twist. The abundance of oak, pecan and magnolia trees help the region retain rural flavor, while the downtown skyline is representative of the state capital's role as a growing industrial hub.
Columbia's population is small enough that traffic is relatively mild, and the streets are rarely overcrowded, but large enough to support trendy shops, cafes, bars and other businesses that make urban life enjoyable.
Much of Columbia's vibrancy is fed by the students who attend the University of South Carolina. On many of the borders of USC's sprawling campus, it's not always clear where the university ends, and the rest of the metro area begins, as a number of Columbia's businesses and neighborhoods are interposed with USC's buildings and student housing. As a result, residents share a close bond with the student community, including a fierce pride in the Gamecocks football team

- Similar to the 401(k) savings plans widely available in the private sector, the TSP allows employees to tax defer a portion of their income each year, subject to the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. For calendar year 2020, employees under the age of 50 may contribute up to $19,500, while those over age 50 are eligible to make catch-up contributions that allow them to defer up to $25,500.

- For retired military personnel, these benefits are in addition to full monthly retirement pay or pension
- In addition to FERS, VA provides health care insurance coverage for retired personnel
- Disability Retirement
