Separation Payments

Members who separate from the military before they are eligible for retirement may receive separation or severance pay.

If you were discharged from active duty and received Special Separation Benefit or Voluntary Separation Incentive, read about VSI/SSB Recoupment  before you consider applying for retirement.    You will be required to repay the full gross VSI/SSB paid to date.
