Abstract:

Several proposals to restructure the military retirement system have been placed before Congress and the Department of Defense. In order to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of these retirement proposals, each alternative must be considered in view of its impact on the entire personnel system. Consideration should be given to impacts on the force profile as well as to cost implications which result from changes in military compensation policies. Complex interactions occur in the personnel system which require a thorough understanding and investigation by force managers. This report develops a dynamic model of the Department of Defense enlisted personnel system which facilitates that type of examination. Analysis of the most recent retirement proposal, submitted by the Presidents Commission on Military Compensation, indicates substantial savings could be realized under full implementation of the plan.
