Army Benefits Website

The Army has re-launched their benefits site, My Army Benefits.  The site is intended to be a one-stop resource for all things related to Army benefits, such as pay, education, health care, and family services.

The topics are organized by the following categories:  Benefit Facts, Planning Toolkits, Wounded Warrior, and Survivor.  The Benefit Facts section includes:  Federal Benefits, State/Territory Benefits, and a Resource Locator.  The Planning Toolkits section includes:  Transitioning and Retirement, Survivorship and Deployment.  The Wounded Warrior section includes:  Disability Income Calculator, Sustaining Income Calculator, MyMEB/PEB, and Wounded Warrior Fact Sheets.  The Survivor section includes:  Survivor Benefits Report and Survivor Fact Sheets.

I spent a good deal of time looking throughout this site and it contains a lot of information.  Most of it is not Army specific but rather general to the entire military, though some is just for the Army.  Some of the information is available in Spanish as well.  I'm going to bookmark it because I'm sure it will come in handy.
