As you prepare to retire from the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve, there are specific steps you must take to ensure you receive retirement pay when you hit age 60. You will not receive notification of retirement pay at age 59; therefore, you will need to initiate the retired pay application about four months before your 60th birthday.
It is critical to maintain a current address with HQ ARPC by updating it in myPers or calling 800-525-0102.
To apply for Reserve retired pay, complete the ARPC Form 83 and DD Form 2656 below. Both of these forms must be received by HQ ARPC to establish the retired pay account. These forms should be submitted at least 30 days, but not earlier than 4 months before the retired pay effective date (normally when you reach age 60).
The DD Form 2656 and ARPC Form 83 must be filled out no earlier than 4 months and no later than 30 days before your 60th birthday.
