6 Soldiers “YOU” electing discharge instead of transfer to the Retired Reserve must be aware that a discharge will have an impact on retired pay. Regardless of the Soldier’s retired pay plan, Soldiers who elect discharge before age 60 will have their High–3 average or final pay computed based on the rates in effect on date of discharge. However, Soldiers electing transfer to the Retired Reserve will continue to receive credit for longevity and DFAS will compute retired pay based on the rates in effect at the time of retirement. 6 Retired Reserve vs Discharge

7 Final Base Pay = Joined prior to Sep 8, 1980 High Three = Joined on or after Sep 8, 1980 *Career Status Bonus/REDUX = Joined on or after Aug 1, 1986 *does not apply to Non-Regular Retirement DIEMS date creditable status includes: Delayed Entry Program, Reserve Officer Training Corps, Military Academy, and Health Professions Scholarship Program 7 Retired Pay Systems

8 Total Retirement Points Divided by 360 = Calculated Service Example: 2560 retirement points divided by 360 = 7.11 (years of service) 8 Calculating Service

9 Calculated Service x 2.5% x final base pay = $ Retired Pay Cost of Living Allowance is at full rate as determined by the Consumer Price Index Retired pay is calculated on the base pay at the time of application for retired pay 9 Final Base Pay Formula Calculation

10 Calculated Service x 2.5% x average 36 months base pay = $ Retired Pay Cost of Living Allowance is at full rate as determined by the Consumer Price Index In Military Status - Retired pay is calculated on the average of the last 36 months of base pay at application for retired pay Discharged/Former Member – Retired pay is calculated on the average of the last 36 months of base pay at the time of discharge 10 High Three Average Formula

15 Application for retired pay should be completed and sent to the Human Resource Command, Fort Knox not earlier than 9 months and not later than 90 days prior to the date retired pay is to start (usually your 60 th birthday). You are responsible for submitting your retirement application but help is never far away! Your unit and higher headquarters have people qualified to assist you through this process. When do I apply for Retired Pay?

16 What do I send to apply for retired pay? – Your completed Retired Pay application will at a minimum consist of: DD Form 108 (Application for Retired Pay) DD Form 2656 (Data for Retired Pay Benefits) SF 1199a (Direct Deposit Form) AHRC-249-E or NGB Form 23C (Retirement Point Statements for Retired Pay) Copy of your NOE (20 year or 15 year) DD Form 2656-5 RCSBP Election Certificate (if applicable) Application for Retired Pay

17 What additional documentation should I send? – Any forms showing changes to your RCSBP election DD 2656-6, DD 2656-1, automatic election forms, divorce decrees, marriage certificates, birth certificates, adoption papers – Documents to support reduced age retirement (if applicable) DD 214s, DD 215s, DD 220, Mobilization Orders, LES – Orders showing highest grade/rank held and administrative reduction (if applicable) – Copy of approved waiver to serve beyond age 60 (if applicable).

18 Where do I send my application for Retired Pay? – Send all documents to: U.S. Army Human Resources Center of Excellence ATTN: AHRC-PDR-RCR 1600 Spearhead Division Avenue DEPT 482 Fort Knox, KY 40122 Application for Retired Pay - Continued

19 Yes! There is a 6 year statute of limitations for back pay of retired pay. – A claim must be filed within 6 years from the date of eligibility for retired pay. – If not filed within the 6 year limitation, 1 day’s retired pay is lost for each day of delay in filing the application. Example: If you became eligible for retired pay on 2 July 1990 and the application for retired pay was not processed by DFAS until 2 September 1996, payment can only be made from 2 September 1990 Is there a Statute of Limitations on Retired Pay?

20 If you serve past your 60 th birthday, you must send your age waiver to HRC with your application for retired pay. Failure to send this waiver can create a pay debt. (Not a good way to start Retirement!) The Statute of Limitations still applies to you so don’t put off applying for your retired pay! Applying after Age 60
