Have a blend of active and reserve time. LES shows 16+ for time in service but my active time is almost 14. Say I want to retire at 20, do I have to serve 20 active and will be paid for 22 total time? Currently active duty and plan to remain active duty.

Yes that's exactly it. You have to serve 20 years active to receive an AD retirement, but you'll be paid for 22 years of service.

I recommend you speak to your S1 and Branch manager and also have a 1506 done on your time ASAP to get it down to the day. However, yes, for AD retirement you'll have to serve 20 years as an AD soldier.
