Retirement Information

Effective 1 OCT 2010 retirement estimates must be obtained through the Army Benefits Center Civilian. The estimate can be requested via the Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) by calling 1-877-276-9287 or TDD at 1-877-276-9833 and speaking to a counselor.  An estimate is also available via the Employee Benefits Information System (EBIS) website at https://www.ebis.army.mil.  You must be within 5 years of retirement eligibility and can request one estimate per year only.
To determine general eligibility requirements, we recommend you visit the “Eligibility Requirement” section applicable to your retirement plan on the ABC-C website at https://www.abc.army.mil.          

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Please keep in mind that the EBIS estimate utilizes your LEAVE Service Computation Date (SCD).  This SCD appears on your Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) as well as your SF-50 Notification of Personnel Action (NPA).  This SCD may include service that is NOT creditable for retirement purposes.  It is important that you understand this when accessing this estimate.  If you have complicated service (part-time, intermittent, refunded service or temporary service, Tennessee Valley Authority, Non-Appropriated Fund, Foreign Service) we strongly recommend that you contact the ABC-C for your estimate rather than utilize the EBIS calculator as the estimate will not be accurate.
