Issue Summary

Reserve Component Retired Pay

Issue Number 506
Status Completed
Issue Title Reserve Component Retired Pay
Scope RC retired Soldiers do not receive retirement pay until age 60. Active duty retired pay is received immediately upon retirement. Current OPTEMPO greatly increases the demand for RC Soldiers. In today’s “One Army,” offering retired pay options to RC Soldiers would reduce this inequity.
Issue Recommendation Authorize retired RC Soldiers the option to receive a reduced rate of retired pay at age 50 or wait until age 60 to receive full retired pay.
