The followingparagrah is from the article
"Which means, Joe's tenure in the senate, which ran from 1972 to 2008, gave him 36 years of service and qualified him for the 80% of his existing salary as pension. Which puts his pension at over $135,000 a year. That is on top of his $277.000 he is receiving for being vice president and that does not include the over $13,000 he will get in social security benefits."

Why does Biden get to draw a Civial Service Retirement System pension when he is not retired? He is still employed in a federal position.
