  • Under previous law, members of the Guard and Reserves could not begin receiving their retired pay until age 60. Under a change implemented by the FY 2009 National Defense Authorization Act, however, certain members may be able to start receiving their retired pay as early as age 50.

  • No armywife! My hubby is active duty army, and when you retire you automatically get your benefits! The pay depends on your rank and time in service! An E-5 will get way less than an O-2. ANd so on! You have to look up retirement by years, Time in service, and rank! Good luck!
