  • CG Transition Assistance Program (TAP): Please check out TAP website at: The TAP Seminar (TAPS) is mandatory and provides important information/resources that will assist in your transition. See the FY20 TAPS schedule at:
  • PPC Retiree & Annuitant Services: PPC-RAS administers retiree pay & benefits and other important retiree services.  See RAS Home Page at: with other important links.  CG-4700s MUST be sent directly to PPC, NOT to CG Retiree Services (CG-13).  
  • CG Retiree Services Program: Director of Military of Personnel (CG-13) is program director and the Executive Agent for CG National Retiree Council (CGNRC).  The Program Manager (CG-1335), CGNRC, and Regional Retiree Councils (RRCs) have responsibility to help ensure the retiree community is kept informed on changing pay & benefits, policy, and programs; apprise the Commandant on issues of importance to retirees; and promote an active, mutually beneficial relationship between the Active Duty & Retiree communities.

    • RRCs: You're encouraged to connect with a RRC before retiring.  RRCs can be of help to you and your family in transitioning to your new location and offer a great way to stay connected with the CG and area retirees. A list of RRCs and POCs is accessible in the CG Retiree Services Program Guide at:
