Congress found the prior Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) program overly costly. It’s for those who spend their careers performing one job, but most government workers don’t remain long enough to qualify for a pension. Government jobs disqualified them from Social Security.

Congress formed Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). While this system’s retirement benefit is little, its TSP’s 5% match is more substantial. Most government or non-government personnel can take their TSP and Social Security when they depart. It protects Congress better than private-sector measures. FERS requires your hands-on participation.

The CSRS had an automatic pilot. The best non-executive retirement plan in the U.S. is probably still under FERS. Look more into FERS if you want to maximize your retirement funds.
