Retirment Information

You can request retirement from your Military Personnel Office when you have 20 years of credible service.

Qualified ARNG personnel retire and begin to draw retired pay at age 60, or any date thereafter that. Due to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2008, “REDUCED AGE RETIREMENT”, qualified personnel may retire under the age of 60, however not less than 50.

However, eligibility for Tricare will not start until age 60.

Information is available to those within two years of retirement to prepare for life after service in the Armed Forces. Contact the G1 at 304-561-6355 for more details.
