TMW 026: Guard & Reserve Retirement Points
Most military members know how active duty retirement works. But do you know how retirement works through the National Guard and Reserves? The Reserve retirement system is based on earning Retirement Points for your service. In this Guard & Reserve Retirement Point Guide, we discuss what Points are, how to earn them, the minimum and maximum Points you can earn in a year, how to translate your active duty service time to Points for the Guard or Reserves, how many points the different types of service are worth, how to earn more Retirement Points, and finally, how to put this all together to estimate your Point total to calculate your Reserve retirement pay. Whew ~ that sounds like a lot! And it is! But I've broken it down in a way that makes it easy to understand. After this podcast, you'll be able to talk about Retirement Points like a seasoned NCO!
