At age 60, after at least 20 years of satisfactory military service, you may start collecting retirement pay. Upon retirement, a service member is eligible for TRICARE for Life. Your 20 years of service can include any combination of active, reserve and Guard duty. Retire at your highest rank! The last 8 years of your time must have been served in the National Guard. Take a look at all your military time and see how close you are to your 20 year mark.
