The U.S. Navy has issued a reminder to Sailors eligible to opt-in to the Blended Retirement System (BRS) that the BRS enrollment period ends Dec. 31. Sailors can enroll in BRS via MyPay. Opt-in eligible Sailors who decide not to enroll in BRS will remain in the current 'legacy' retirement system. Command leaders are responsible for ensuring opt-in eligible service members are prepared to make an informed financial decision prior to the closure of the opt-in window. Once a Sailor elects to enroll in BRS, that decision is permanent. Sailors can find complete BRS information on the Department of Defense BRS webpage.
