I enlisted in the Air National Guard in November 2002. I am currently an E-7. I was hired against an AGR position in January 2009 and plan to retire as an E-8 at 44 years old. My 20 year active AGR (TFAMS) date states 1 FEB 2028. At that point, I would have 20 years active to retire but 25 years total combined service. Do the 5 extra years as a traditional guardsmen count towards any extra years or points towards retirement pay? I can't find any guidance anywhere. Please help me! Thank you in advance.

You will get the additional points earned during those guard years. Probably near 2 or 3 months of time added to your active duty points. An active duty retirement is based upon 1 point per day for everyday on active duty and that is a little over 7k points. I don't know the exact amount.

I was under the impression that my TFAMS date 1 FEB 2028 takes those days into account. As far as I know, drill weekends did not count towards an AGR retirement. I understand AT days are added to the points. Maybe, I'm misunderstanding.

Your TFAMS has those into account as you said. I don't know about the drill weekends. I never got that far into it. I can ask coworkers and see if they know.
