Retirement Benefits For State Troops Many Local National Guard Members To Be Affected By Bill Recently Signed A retirement pay bill which eventually will benefit a large num faer of National Guardsmen here :as beea signed into law by Presi- ent Truman and some features of the new measures w ere learned here today. The bill, known as Public Law 810. is in three sections and it is the last section which provides retirement benefits--for the first time-for officers and enlisted personnel of the National Guard and the Reserve Corps. Since there are many Frederick couiitians who served in old Com- ny A. Headquarters Company the Band Section, some prior to the Mexican border incident before World War I. the law will be of much interest locally. 'he retirement pay provided is based upon the number of years of active Federal service of an officer or enlisted man and a credit is also given for the years of service in the National Guard or Reserve Corps. Main purpose of the bill, it is said, is to give encouragement to 'fificers and enlisted men for length if service in the National Guard a*"i Reserve Corps, with the idea ' - ,t many of these men will stay in service to qualify for retirement pay. · The law provides that these benefits do not become payable until the officer or enlisted man reaches the age of 60 and requires a minimum period of service of twenty _ years. It is the understanding here t hat some Federal service in the ast war is required. The bill gives two and one-half per cent of the" base pay of the officer or enlisted man for every ycar of Federal service--the same pay rate which is now made to re- ·ite'i regular army offices. Service u".-.Vt-r Federal pay arrangement inch-So Mexican border. World War. 1. V.'orid'V.'ar -1L summer training camps and armory drills. For example, the retirement pay · of a cajjUin who served in' both ·te.-ars for m period of five years, and ·TiEd 15 years service in the guard. would be computed somewhat as follows: Assuming that he attended summer training carnp each year for two weeks, he would have Federal credit on this score of approximately 30 weeks over a period of 15 years. Assuming- he attended drill regular!/ 'there are approximately 50 dr:J's a year 1 he would have ,Fecier.~l cre'Hi for appr ximately 750 days or around 120 weeks on this score. That would make a slimmer camp-drill credit of about 150 weeks or about three years. This would add to his five years Of Federal service during the wars ---giving him eight years of Federal service at two and one half percent of his base pay per year--or in all I about "0 per cent of his base pay. I For his 15 years service in the G Gua,rd. he would be entitled to a ^credit of roughly three-eighths of ·ine per cent per year. In 15 years I this would amount to about five cer I cent. Ke would therefore be entitled, in all. to 25 per cent of his base pay as retirement benefit. It is not clear as ret. but is believed -he base pay also eludes longevity benefits 'so muc additional pay for each year of service'*. Sergeants c£ various grades will pro'bafaly form the largest group oi enlisted men who will gradually become eligible for payments. Ijferiich ".vHI be figured en the same basis as officers. The la\v is administered oy tne Secretary of the Army who is authorized to put it inio effect as soon as he is ready but not later than January 1, 1949. It is understood that his office is preparing the necessary" application forms. Hisrhest Rank Sticks The first v.vo sections of the new Jaw apply to officers in the Regular Army and Air Corps and one pro- jjpision authorizes tne:r retirement in the highest rank they held in World AVar 11. A similar provision was passed some time a?o for the Navy and Marine Corps. Police Battle Mobs In Rome Rome.
