1. 10 USC 12733 has been changed to allow a Reservist to be credited with up to 130 inactive points per anniversary year. The effective date of this change applies to any anniversary year ending on or after 30 Oct 2007. The previous maximum allowed was 90 inactive points. ARPR/ASOSH files are being modified to accept this change.
2. 10 USC 12731 has also been changed to allow qualified Reservists to start receiving retired pay earlier than age 60. Effective 29 January 2008, each 90-day aggregate of active duty completed in a fiscal year will allow a member to begin receiving retired pay three months earlier than age 60. Medical benefits eligibility remains at age 60, and only service performed on or after 29 January 2008 counts. Active duty service which will not count towards the aggregate includes active duty performed in a regular component and active duty performed under 10 USC 12310 (e.g., FTS, CANREC, and RPN recall orders associated with organizing, administering, recruiting, instructing, or training the Reserve components).
3. PERS-91 will review a member's record and establish a retired-pay eligibility date at the time the member is transferred to the Retired Reserve. Because recent periods of active duty may not be reflected in point totals at the time a member requests transfer to the Retired Reserve, members requesting transfer to the Retired Reserve should be proactive in bringing extended periods of qualifying active duty (performed after 28 January 2008) to the attention of PERS-912. This can be done as an attachment to the retirement request.
