It depends on specifics of the pension plan; some are better than others.

In addition, Gov't jobs typically have better medical plans for retirees. The retiree medical plan may be worth as much as the pension.

Ball park, I'll guess the pension plan is worth 12% of the salary and the medical plan about 10%.
