Blended Retirement System Opt-In Period Now Open
The opt-in period for the new Blended Retirement System (BRS) is now officially open. Service members will need to visit one of these designated resources to opt into the BRS:
- Army, Air Force, Navy: MyPay
- Marine Corps: Marine Online (MOL)
- Coast Guard, NOAA Commissioned Corps: Direct Access
- U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS): Contact the USPHS Compensation Branch
Service members who believe they are eligible to opt-in, but do not see the opt-in option available online, should contact their local personnel/human resources office to verify eligibility.
NOTE – The decision to opt-in is irrevocable, even if a service member changes their mind before the deadline on Dec. 31, 2018.
If an eligible service member takes no action, they will remain in the legacy retirement system.
