2014 RETIREMENT SEMINARS
Send requests to your unit administrative personnel. The request should then be forwarded to the Retirement Services section. A pre-requisite for this event is that the Soldier must have a 20-year or 15-year letter. Soldiers who have already retired are also welcome to attend.

After completing 20 years of part-time service in the Army National Guard, you will qualify for retired pay.
This starts at age 60 and will continue each month after that for the rest of your life, and adds to any other government annuity or private retirement plan from which you are eligible.
