The MBA Project assessed the knowledge of the military retirement system among U.S. military officers attending the Naval Postgraduate School and correlated the level of knowledge to the effectiveness of the underlying communication sources used by the population. A web-based survey site was used for primary data collection, as well as preliminary survey results analysis. The MBA Project: 1) determined the areas of the retirement system that are unfamiliar to the sample population, 2) determined the various modes of retirement system communication used by the population, 3) correlated levels of knowledge to basic demographics and communication modes, and 4) found the root causes in knowledge deficiencies recommended. The MBA Project concluded that there was a significant military retirement knowledge deficiency in the sample population at the Naval Postgraduate School. The military retirement information system was assessed as the root cause of this deficiency. Recommendations included improvements in the consolidation, periodicity, and policy of the military retirement information systems.
