Retirement Services Office (RSO)


Soldiers and their Families need to plan their military retirement long before the application for retirement is submitted. Not to have a planned retirement in many cases results in a less than happy retirement or cases of making mistakes that could have been avoided.

Changing from military to civilian life-styles is not always an easy task, but planning can be a big help. It is not only the fact that upon military retirement, Families change locations (often to areas where they know few people if any out side of Family members), change careers, and change life styles. The simple matter of moving from government quarters where the government took care of repair and maintenance, to one’s own home where repair and maintenance is an individual responsibility is not always simple.

At least 12-24 months before planned retirement, a Soldier and Family members should attend a pre-retirement orientation provided by an Installation Retirement Services Officer. There is no prohibition to attending one long before a retirement application is submitted and another shortly before an actual retirement date.

The information provided here is designed to help Soldiers and Families prepare for retirement. We hope this Web site helps you fit retirement planning into your busy schedule. When you can, please arrange to take time to visit your Retirement Services Office (RSO) for more information.
