Transitioning from Service: Employment and Retirement Planning

Here at the Department of Labor we’re empowering transitioning service members to make informed decisions as they move into successful civilian careers. Developing sound financial habits is a key part of a secure financial future.

Some of the questions transitioning service members often ask include:

  • How can I find a new job that compliments my skills and interests?
  • Where can I find free local resources?
  • How can I prepare for applying and interviewing?
  • What benefits are available at my new job, and how do they differ from my military benefits?
  • Am I on target to meet my retirement and other savings goals?
  • How can I balance competing goals for my savings – like college savings, a new car or retirement?

These are all important questions, and the department can help you find answers.
