Maybe they shouldn't be able to retire at 45 then

To retire at 45 as a trooper you'd either need to start at 25 and take the 20 year retirement that is 50% of your highest salary or start at 20.

You can't get hired as a trooper until you have 60 college credits and are at least 21. So at best you're not retiring at 75% until you're 46, and even then most troopers don't start the job until they're in their mid-late 20s and there's a mandatory retirement age of 60.

What I'm saying is the concept you're after doesn't happen much and is a silly argument.

That's a really high pension. Wow.

When googling the PSP retirement I saw a thing saying the average PA State employee retires at 82% of their salary. I can't find it again to prove that point, so it could be moot.

They retire at 75% of their highest paid years. But that could include overtime.

So it could be higher than their salary if they get less overtime as they get older
