The Military Blended Retirement System: Dude, Wheres My Calculator?
[Nords note: Im on Mainland travel through mid-July: Seattle, Norfolk, and Ocean City.
Ill update this post as DoD rolls out the changes.]
A reader asks an outstanding question:
Does it make sense to opt in to the militarys new Blended Retirement System in 2018?
One of our NCOs has a pessimistic view of the BRS, especially since theyre over 12 years of service and dont see how the BRS will benefit them. In fact, they dont see how it will benefit any servicemembers. I think the best way to decide whether theres a benefit or not is to actually show them numbers, via the calculator.
