The Defense Department recently released the beta version of an online tool that allows service members to compare their financial futures under the current retirement system and the Blended Retirement System.

Once you've had a chance to juggle some numbers, we want to know what the non-beta version should look like, and what else you need to know about the BRS.

Are there questions you still need answered when you're running your retirement numbers? Are there variables the online tool, or the existing BRS training, haven't covered, or haven't stressed? If you're in a leadership role, what details do your junior service members need to make the right retirement decision for them?
