Retiring (retired reserves) from the Army Reserves and I have my 20 year letter. What’s the shortest turn around time, from the date of submitting my retirement packet, until I can actually enter the retired reserves. Can I be retired in 90 days? 30? 12 months?

I served as a Unit Administrator and retired from the Reserves after 29 years of service. Best guesstimate is about 30-60 days for the paperwork to go thru channels and orders to be issued. You can actually pick the retirement date on the application. Best of Luck!

Assuming you are talking about a transfer to the retired reserve and not collection of retired pay, it’s really just a function of processing the paperwork. The DA4651, counseling, and written request approved by your command can all be accomplished in a weekend. But getting HRC to cut the orders may take 60 days. Then you will get a pile of crap in the mail from HRC like a plaque, letter, pin, etc about 30 days after that.
