Part of the job description of the U. S. Vice President is President of the U. S. Senate, and his or her pension is based on his/her service in Congress. Someone who serves in Congress for at least five years, including time served as Vice President, receives a pension equal to the average pay of the three years in which he/she earned the most, up to a maximum of 80% of his/her final pay rate. The former Vice President can start collecting at age 62 if he/she served at least five years, at age 50 if he/she served at least 20 years, or at any time if he/she served at least 25 years.
