Retirement points earned in support of FHD can exceed the 90 point limitation for retirement currently restricted for each member’s retirement/retention year. FHD performed will be credited with one retirement point for each day of this type of duty/preparations. Points for FHD done in inactive duty status will be shown in the IDS (inactive duty status) column so they will not be counted in the 130 point limitation when calculating retirement points.
