This section focuses on key areas for Sailors who have or are thinking about retiring or moving to Reserve status. These include annual retirement points, applying for retired pay, ID cards, TriCare medical benefits and the VA. In addition, we have information for family members on funeral services and the Reserve Component Survivor Benefit Plan. If you don’t see the answer to your question email Military & Veterans support team and include the topic of your question in the subject line.
When you know you’re going to retire most of you will complete the “change to manual password” option with DS LOGON because your CAC cards must be exchanged for either grey-area or retired ID cards. This is very important because this manual login will be needed for access to Tricare, VA benefits, and MANY OTHER DoD and non-DoD Benefits websites!
Here is the link for an Army retired pay calculator that asks you to log on using your DS Logon or visit https://myaccess.dmdc.osd.mil/identitymanagement/authenticate.do?execution=e1s1
Still, have a question? If so, email our Military & Benefits Support Team and be sure to put the topic in the subject line for a faster response. Also, be sure to include your phone number in your email in case we need to call.
