RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Remember Pensions?
A lot of parents or grandparents had one, but the once standard benefit has all but gone away.
CBS 17’s Bill Young has some examples of jobs still offering a traditional pension.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 25% of employers still offer a pension.
But in which fields?
Using information from the bureau, U.S. News assembled a list.
Most of them are government jobs.
An estimated 89% of teachers are offered a pension, and 86% percent of state and local government jobs offer one, and 76% of utility companies offer pensions.
Some careers with traditionally strong unions like aviation and construction are on the list.
And, of course, the military if you stay in the service for a certain amount of time.
