Retired Services

“Once a Marine, always a Marine” is more than just a slogan. We take care of our own. As you prepare for retirement and all that comes after it, we’re here to help you navigate everything from retired pay and allowance to healthcare benefits and death gratuity. The Marine and Family Program’s Retired Services Office (RSO) delivers information and assistance to retirees and eligible family members from all branches of the US Uniformed Services. We also serve Coast Guard and NOAA. Our staff of volunteers will help you get what you deserve for your honorable and faithful service to our nation.

Maintain the tradition and continue to serve your community. Discover how fulfilling it can be to help guide fellow retirees!
