Abstract:

In preparation of the alteration of the Uniform Services Retirement Benefit Act pending before Congress, a survey study was conducted to estimate influences that exist amongst Uniform Services enlisted personnel and officers which might determine who would select what retirement system. Survey data were collected and in brief the findings were 1 Those personnel likely to select the proposed system or be indecisive tended to have 10 years of service at this time. As well they would also expect to serve less than 20 years. 2 Of all the four services, the Army personnel with 10 years of service found the proposed system the most attractive whereas the Navy appeared the least likely among these non-careerists. 3 The trends which emerged from the demographic differentials were the number of dependents and whether a person had a working spouse. Many of the other differentials such as education, ethnicity, etc. did not stand out.
