Approaching 5 YOE in Software engineering. Currently paid 130k base east coast HCOL and in CBS. My only worry is that salary growth and pbb potential is very much hindered by the fact that I come under service line - Core Business Services. When all my friends who work for tech and other companies discuss about their additional perks like ISO, RSU, Bonus, etc. I feel like I'm left out in this curve. Is my thinking right? Am I already underpaid?

Yes very underpaid for a Software Engineer. Good news is that you have the skills literally every tech company is looking for! Best of luck with recruiting OP!

If you were laid off or fired would you apply for your current job? I was laid off from Big 4 audit in 2016 after working there for 2 years and it was one of the best things to happen to me. 1.
