You know pensions are an anomaly these days. Be happy you have one at all.

Do you still get state provided non-Medicare healthcare after retirement too?

I didn't choose the pension option but I guess it's nice to have for people who don't want to monitor their own investments.

To get the healthcare benefit after retirement you have to pay 3% of your gross salary into the healthcare fund for 15 years. It's quite a chunk of change

Wow. Totally worth it, IMO. As a cost - damn, that's actually cheap and extremely reasonable.

If you can afford it, take it.
