The 2015 Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission Recommendations were just released at the end of January, 2015. The MCRMC is a 9-person Panel that was charged with examining military and veterans benefits with the goal of making recommendations to Congress. They came back with a 300 page report and 15 core recommendations, including overhauling the Military Retirement system, dismantling TRICARE and replacing it with a commercial health insurance program, limiting Tuition Assistance benefits to only cover Professional Development courses, and much more. But it's not all doom and gloom. Half of the 15 proposed changes are quality of life improvements. Take a listen to hear our rundown of all the proposed military benefits changes, and check out the show notes at http://themilitarywallet.com/podcast13
