Last Updated: Jul 20, 2016 12:02PM EDT
Looking to update your IRR or ING status?

1. Go to your Settings Page



2. Check IRR/ING on or off, as appropriate


Curious what IRR and ING are? If you don't know, you're likely not in either, but please see below for definitions...

IRR = Inactive Ready Reserve 

An individual assigned to the IRR typically receives no pay and is not obligated to drill, conduct annual training, or participate in any military activities (except for periodic Muster activities) until activated by Presidential Reserve Callup Authority or until electing to drill, train, or serve in a "Drill without Pay" or an "Active Duty" role. As there is no such category as "inactive" reserves, IRR personnel are members of the Ready Reserve and they retain their status as uniformed military personnel, their military specialty (i.e., pilot, Surface Warfare Officer, infantryman, intelligence officer or enlisted intelligence specialist, etc.) and rank/pay grade. IRR personnel also receive benefits similar to other members of the Reserve Components of the Armed Forces to include: Entitlement to a Military ID Card, ID Cards for their dependents, PX/BX/NEX/MCX/CGX (Exchange) benefits, Commissary benefits, and MWR (Morale Welfare and Recreation) Benefits.

ING = Inactive National Guard 
Army National Guard personnel in an inactive status not in the Selected Reserve who are attached to a specific National Guard unit but do not participate in training activities. Upon mobilization, they will mobilize with their units. In order for these personnel to remain members of the Inactive National Guard, they must muster once a year with their assigned unit. Like the Individual Ready Reserve, all members of the Inactive National Guard have legal, contractual obligations. Members of the Inactive National Guard may not train for retirement credit or pay and are not eligible for promotion. Also called ING. See also Individual Ready Reserve; Selected Reserve.
