Retired servicemembers are permitted to continue allotments that they had in effect while on active duty except for Combined Federal Campaign, Dental Insurance, and SGLI.

Retirees are authorized a maximum of six discretionary allotments. Examples of discretionary allotments included insurance premiums for health, auto, or life insurance; voluntary payments to a family member, former spouse or relative; deposits into a financial institution, mutual fund or investment firm; payment of an auto or personal loan, mortgage, rent, or consumer debts.

Retirees are also authorized an unlimited number of non-discretionary allotments. Examples of non-discretionary allotments are savings bonds; payment of delinquent local taxes; repayment of AER/NMCRS and Red Cross loans; any court ordered garnishment; and charitable contributions to Armed Forces Retirement Homes and AER.
