Foley's pension



Former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley will receive a pension of $32,000 a year after the age of 62. If Foley takes his pension early at age 56, he will receive $22,400 a year.

The calculations are based on formulas for House members with almost 12 years of service, according to the National Taxpayers Union, which tracks congressional pension issues.

Pensions are adjusted each year based on cost of living.
