Reserve Citizen Airmen eligible to opt in to the Blended Retirement System have until Dec. 31 to make the election in myPay. Reserve members in a paid status who have accrued fewer than 4,320 retirement points as of Dec. 31, 2017 are grandfathered under the legacy retirement system but may choose to opt into the BRS. Each eligible Reserve Citizen Airman should acknowledge eligibility via myPers notification, complete the mandatory opt-in training in ADLS, and seek Personal Financial Counseling at the local Airman and Family Readiness office as he/she weighs which retirement plan is best for him/her.
