Reservists have until Dec. 31 to opt into Blended Retirement System

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Reserve Citizen Airmen eligible to opt in to the Blended Retirement System have until Dec. 31 to make the election in myPay.

Reserve members in a paid status who have accrued fewer than 4,320 retirement points as of Dec. 31, 2017 are grandfathered under the legacy retirement system but may choose to opt into the BRS. The opt in election must be made by Dec. 31, 2018 at https://mypay.dfas.mil/mypay.aspx.

Each eligible Reserve Citizen Airman should acknowledge eligibility via myPers notification, complete the mandatory opt-in training in ADLS, and
seek Personal Financial Counseling at the local Airman and Family Readiness office as he/she weighs which retirement plan is best for him/her.
