Greetings and a Very Merry Christmas everyone. Recently I posted a note about my retirement and the condition of my retirement certificate, letter and copy of the form. Someone on this forum, a "Salty & Seasoned Contributor", contacted me and requested additional information and pictures which I provided. Imagine my suprise when a Fed Ex truck dropped off a box from NHQ this morning. Inside was a personal letter of apology from NHQ Personnel, a pristine retirement certificate in a really nice CAP presentation folder, a letter from NHQ/CC, with the correct date and name, etc., and a CAP 75th Anniversary Paper Weight in a presentation box.  Very, very nice! My retirement ID card arrived Dec 17th; my DOR was 1 Nov. I recall someone was retiring 31 Dec and wondered if it would go smoothly, I think it probably will. At least I hope so. Thanks to the Salty & Seasoned Contributor who took an interest in my message. And to all of you in the forum, I'd like to quote ".......Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus." Simplex, out here.

Merry Christmas and a very happy (and retired) New Year!

My effective date was yesterday.   Submitted the paperwork at the end of October.   Haven't heard or received anything from NHQ as of this date.  Maybe too soon.

Or it's been denied! >:D     We're not going to let you go!

Checked e-Services and "log and behold", access was denied since "My Membership has expired".   Evidently, my retirement request has been approved though no official notification has been received.

When was your membership supposed to expire?

Chappie

Sure thing, Nin.  Phil...October of 2019.  I had renewed when I received my renewal notification...then after upping for another year, decided to retire earlier than originally planned.

Well then it looks like you're Retired. Of course someone with National Access.... should be able to check your status and see if your package is on the way or not.

Oh, believe me, depending on where your serving "airing differences" can land you in real trouble! (Honestly, the only problem I've ever encountered with airing my differences came from senior members in command positions without management experience, i.e. dealing and leading people as a profession, etc)




What has helped me is by developing friendships within CAP those senior members with more experience than I had, that I could ask questions in a polite and professional manner.

For the CAP retirement benefits, must a senior member be in CAP for at least 20 years like the military?
