Minnesota National Guard
Reserve Income
Replacement Program
General Information

Some Minnesota National Guard troops may be eligible for a new entitlement called the Reserve Income Replacement Program (RIRP).  RIRP is a financial entitlement for Reserve Component Soldiers having served on extended or multiple mobilization tours, which adversely affected their net income.  The RIRP effective from 1 August, 2006 through 31 December, 2008, and has a monthly cap of $3,000.

To be eligible, the difference between your Total Monthly Military Pay (TMMP) and your gross civilian pay must be greater than $50.00 (with your civilian monthly pay is higher than your TMMP), AND you must have been involuntarily activated, AND (a) on or after 1 August 2006 will have completed 18 months’ continuous service; (b) have completed 24 cumulative months of involuntary active duty between 1 August 2001 and 31 August 2006 (these periods need not be consecutive); or (c) are currently serving on involuntary active duty for a period of 180 days or more, which period began six months or less after a previous period of involuntary active duty with duration of 180 days or more.
