Retirement Services Office logo

The North Carolina Army National Guard Retirement Services Office (RSO) has a  mission to serve. That mission goes beyond the traditional drilling Soldier and extends to the furthest boundaries of support; reaching Retirees, Families, Survivors, and even the Active Duty Staff. 

Our end goal is to bring the most effective guidance to those who are planning, applying, updating, or discontinuing any and all retirement benefits. This goal continues to be reached through various sources of online media support, mass marketing, remote training, and extended customer service. 

Some more direct services we provide include:

  • Assisting retirees with state and federal pension applications
  • Change forms 
  • Annuity allotments
  • General information
  • Providing resources and points of contact when applicable

Bottom line…

  Here at the RSO, 'We live to serve and we serve to live!'
