Sailors eligible to opt-in to the new blended retirement system must complete their mandatory training by December 31, 2017. The mandatory training provides information on how the BRS Differs from the traditional retirement system. The training is available on Navy E-Learning and Joint Knowledge Online. There is no automatic enrollment into BRS for opt-in eligible sailors. New Sailors who first join the Navy on or after Jan. 1, will be automatically enrolled in BRS. Sailors who have questions about eligibility for BRS should talk with their Command Career Counselor or Command Financial Specialist.
