Military Support - Retired Activities Office

Our mission is to provide assistance to retirees, surviving spouses, active duty personnel contemplating retirement, and family members. We extend our offer of assistance to Navy/Marine Corps retirees and their families as well as those from all other branches of the military including retired reserves. We provide direct assistance, counseling, and current information on retiree-related matters, or in many cases, find an agency or resource to resolve a retiree's problem.

The Retired Activities Office welcomes walk-in clients, phone calls, and e-mail to either of our two Hampton RAO branches. Hampton Roads RAO branches include the Norfolk Naval Station office and JEB Little Creek-Fort Story. These offices are staffed entirely by volunteers and are open for business between the hours of 1000 and 1400, Monday through Friday. They are closed on all federal holidays.
