Counting Down To the BRS Opt-in Deadline


FTC Disclosure: This is USAA sponsored post.

The Blended Retirement System (BRS) Opt-in period is coming to an end. For many military Servicemembers, that means a decision has to be made. Are you staying in the Legacy System or are you opting into the BRS? In this show, I’m talking with JJ Montanaro from USAA to discuss what the military community needs to consider when making their BRS Opt-in decision.

JJ is a Certified Financial Planner with USAA’s Military Advocacy Group. And he is here to bring his BRS money expertise to the show.  He is sharing the ins and outs of the BRS and the tips you need to help make an informed BRS Opt-in decision before the December 31, 2018 deadline. It’s a great discussion about an important and timely topic. Listen to Game Time to find out who my surprise guest is from MilitaryByOwner
