How to Benefit from the U.S. Navy Reserves IRR


United States Navy personnel separating with less than eight years of service will remain in the Ready Reserve to fulfill their military service obligation (MSO). The Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) is an inactive status which most personnel default to if they do not wish to affiliate in the active reserves. IRR members and family members are eligible for many of the same benefits as those in an active or retired military status.

  • Shop at any military commissary anytime. In the past, reserve members were only eligible for commissary and exchange benefits while in a drilling status. Currently, reserve members and their family are eligible for the commissary and exchange benefit anytime and anywhere.

  • Enjoy Morale, Welfare and Recreation activities and facilities. Reserve members and their families can benefit from the many activities and facilities managed by MWR on any military base.

  • Fly space available on military flights. Reserve members and their families can benefit from military space available flights. A different priority is assigned to each category of active, reserve and retired military members.

  • Retire from the U.S. Navy Reserves IRR. An IRR member can retire from the military and begin earning a retirement check and medical benefits at the age of 60. Certain requirements must be fulfilled to retire, to include earning a minimum of 50 reserve points per anniversary year.
