I am looking for the regs/information on calculating retirement pay.
I had four years active duty.
Then I was in the NG for 4 years. 6 months of that was ADT/ADSW and 3.5 years was regular NG.
Then I went back on active duty for an additional 16 years. I am still on active duty getting my retirement together.
I have a creditable active federal service of 20.5 years for 50% retirement with total service of 24 years.
Because I hit 20 years active federal service counted time for my active duty retirement, some have told my all my drills, IDT, and other non-federal service days of duty in the guard can now be added on as 1405 time. I have another 6 months of that time added up during those other 3.5 years in the Guard.
This would give me 21 years total active/1405 time, a 52.5 percent retirement. I was also told this gets entered in on a DA Form 7301-r or is part of the DA Form 2339.
The catch is, I am being told that those days only count for a Guard or Reserve retirement. The only thing that counts is the ADT/ADSW by the section doing the retirement paperwork.
On the other hand, I being told that that is true only to determine the 20 years AFS for retirement. Once you hit 20 years active, those non-federal active days get added in.
Does anyone have some regs or MOIs that can clear this up. The extra 2.5% would be great.
