Points earned from the Guard service should boost your pension when you attain age 60!

That is what I'm assuming. However, I haven't found documentation or anyone to confirm.

CW2 (Join to see) Papers do vanish. Records personally maintained and organized can be a Godsend. Guard deductions may also accrue to your Social Security benefit when you attain the age for filing for SS.

Everything is easier when you are younger, trust me.

Do the Standard form 180 for a Nat’l Archives request and they should furnish a copy of the Form 20 from your days in the Guard.

I did not retain my file of documents after filing for my age 60 military retirement. I should have kept everything for the Social Security folks.

I had a similar experience when I moved from the Guard to AD Navy. Only your time on orders will be included in calculating your BASD but all of your retirement points count once you've attained retirement. For me, I gained active duty with 2.5 yrs added to me BASD, but once I hit twenty I'll effectively have ~22.

You will receive an active duty retirement so only your 20 years will count. While your LES will say 26 years for pay, your retirement is based off your BASD. Any active time during your reserve period counts towards your active service.
