There are tens of thousands of David Supers out there, men and women who served 20 years in the Guard or Reserve knowing they must wait, unlike their active brethren, until age 60 to begin receiving their monthly military pension.

The pension amount also differs from an active retirement. Traditional Guardsmen and Reservists typically earn 78 points each year, including 15 for merely belonging, by attending weekend drills and annual training.

Some people advise starting the frm one or even two years before your 60th birthday. Seminars and websites can be helpful, but the process can be complicated, so they suggest meeting with your state retirement-services officer.
