The Blended Retirement System
This paper was written to support the author’s presentation on the subject at the 1st Annual Family Law Bar Association – San Antonio continuing legal education seminar in February 2020. The paper introduces the Blended Retirement System (BRS), which is the system in which all Servicemembers entering military on or after January 1, 2018 are enrolled. There was a one year period during calendar year 2018 where Servicemembers with less than 12 years of service could switch from the “Legacy” system to the BRS. The Dep’t. of Defense reports that some 400K Servicemembers switched to the BRS. For family law attorneys who practice military divorce, knowledge of the BRS becomes more important with each passing year.
