Benefits

TRANSITIONING FROM SOLDIER TO CIVILIAN

After their term of service, the Army helps Soldiers transition back into civilian life. Every Army post has an Army Career and Alumni Program center to help Soldiers prepare for futures after the Army. Career counselors are on hand to help Soldiers craft résumés, network with employers and determine post-Army careers that best utilize the skills learned as a Soldier.

ENLISTING FOR POST ARMY CAREER SUCCESS

The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program, a partnership between the U.S. Army and a cross section of American corporations and public sector agencies, provides an opportunity to serve the country while simultaneously preparing for the future.  Soldiers and ROTC cadets are guaranteed a job interview and possible employment with a PaYS partner of their choice. It’s a valuable benefit that the Army is proud to offer.

EARNING PROFESSIONAL TRAINING CERTIFICATES

As a Soldier working in an Army job, you will have many opportunities to earn professional and trade certifications. These certifications will give you specialized skills and help you excel in a civilian career.

BECOME A TEACHER AFTER THE ARMY

If you're interested in a career as a teacher following your Army service, the Army's Troops to Teachers program can help. You'll receive help identifying teacher certification requirements, programs leading to certification and employment opportunities.

RETIRING FROM AN ARMY CAREER

When you retire from the Army, there are many valuable benefits available to you. Retiree benefits can help you pay for college, buy a home, purchase life insurance or find a job.

RETIREMENT SAVINGS PLAN

As a Soldier, you are eligible to participate in a 401(k)-type retirement savings and investment plan. The Thrift Savings Plan is sponsored by the federal government and offers the same type of savings and tax benefits that many corporations offer employees. An optional program, TSP enables you to contribute up to 100 percent of your pay each pay period, up to the limits established by the Internal Revenue Code. If you contribute to the TSP from your basic pay, you may also contribute from 1 to 100 percent of any incentive or special pay (including bonus pay) you receive. TSP contributions are either tax-deferred or tax-exempt, which means that the money you contribute is taken out of your pay before federal and state income taxes are withheld, a feature that regular savings accounts cannot offer.

For more information about the Thrift Savings Plan and the matching-fund program, please contact a recruiter or visit the official TSP website at http://www.tsp.gov/
