Abstract:

This study provides estimates of the post-service earnings experience of individuals who retired from active military service during the period 1971-2001. The findings are based on data from the 2003 Survey of Retired Military 2003 SRM, supplemented with data from the March 2003 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement CPS-ASEC. The study focuses on the effects of possessing a VA disability rating on both the decision to work frill time and on earnings. It also addressed the question of whether or not there is a retirees earnings gap found in previous empirical studies of post service earnings that tends to disappear over time.
