You don't need to do anything until you are 58 years old. HRC no longer mails retirement packets to your home of record, so you need to either call them or do on their website to get them to send it. Fill it out and send it back with all the addition documents and wait for your checks to be deposited. As a note, NGB and HRC personnel systems didn't talk to each other very well, so I would make sure that you have credit for all of your points and years, so copied of DD214 and NGB22 and your records regarding points. Did you get your 20 year letter?

I am 61 years old, I have moved a lot, and that may have kept me from getting the 20 year letter. I have copies of DD214s with summaries of service time. I do not see an actual points computation. I am trying to find a point of contact for whomever is in charge of retirement enrollment.

SGT Everett Bickford - Your National Guard records will be with your state headquarters, I would start there first. They usually will have someone that can help you get your records together and some will help you initiate the paperwork. Any Army Reserve or Active time will be on record at HRC, which your state headquarters can access too. Point count is important, it proves your good years and it's how they compute your retirement pay, so it's important to get all that you have earned on record. The good news is that they should give you back pay to age 60. I don't have any contacts in the New Mexico Guard, but I've generally found that a call to HR at the State Headquarters is the place to start.
