The Costly Mistake of Not Rewarding Health in Retirement

Retirement is a time for military officers to relax and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Unfortunately, many of these retirees make a costly mistake by not rewarding themselves for their health. As military officers, they are healthier than the average American and it’s important to remember that when considering their post-military life.

Medical Records and the Military Disability Process

One of the common mistakes that military retirees make is getting everything on their medical records done properly. This process can be time-consuming and tiring, especially if they have a condition that requires follow-up. While it’s important to get everything documented, too often retirees put too much emphasis on the medical and disability process, which can backfire. This can make them feel more sick and broken and might cost them more down the road when it comes to medical underwriters.

Comparing Options Outside of the Military

It’s important to remember that when the medical underwriters from insurance corporations do their analysis and pricing, they are looking at the actuary tables for the entire population, not just the military. Retirees should not compare themselves to their peers but instead, compare their options and opportunities on the outside. They have earned the right to focus on their health and not just be considered a piece of equipment.
