Many military-based websites provide information about military retirement benefits, including MilitaryTimes.com, Military.com and MilitaryPay.Defense.gov. Most websites that offer military retirement information also discuss basic elements about the military equivalent of private sector salaries and allowances.
MilitaryPay.Defense.gov is sponsored by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, and it discusses the elements affecting military compensation. Military.com is one of the largest military and veteran membership organizations. Its goal is to connect its members to the benefits of service such as scholarships, discounts and government benefits. MilitaryTimes.com also runs a print edition, started in 1940, that has been providing publications to all serving branches of the U.S. military, federal government and global defense community.
