Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan hasn’t said much about his future, but, like other members of Congress, the soon to be former “weekend dad” can at least count on a pension and other perks after he leaves Capitol Hill.

Ryan, at 48, is just two years away from being eligible for a pension under what’s known as the Federal Employees’ Retirement System. Under the formula laid out in this Congressional Research Service study, Ryan would be eligible for an annual pension of nearly $76,000, based on 20 years as an elected House member.
