Voluntary Retirement by uQBIswFR


									                                  Voluntary Retirement

Officers considering voluntary retirement from active duty should review MILPERSMAN
Article 1810-020 and SECNAVINST 1811.3 (series) for basic guidance. Generally,
requests for retirement at current PRD should be received by PERS 82 6-9 months in
advance of PRD. Those requests for retirement prior to PRD should be received by
PERS 82 9-12 months in advance of requested retirement date. Officers officially retire
on the 1st day of the month. Permissive Temporary Duty (PTDY) has been extended
indefinitely; please see ASN MEMO of 18 Sep 01 for more details. Authorization for
PTDY is 20 days.

It is a good idea to mail and/or mail a copy of the letter to us (PERS-449) so that we can
ensure delivery to the PERS 82. A sample letter is included below to assist you.
