    Let Us Assist with Life's Retirement Questions!

Retiree Activities

Welcome! We are the Retiree Activities Office (RAO) at Fairchild Air Force Base. Our role is to interface between the active duty and retired communities and keep retirees, and their loved ones, informed on matters related to their military status. We provide important information on TRICARE, military ID cards, Survivor benefits, Death Reporting, and much more. The RAO also maintains a list of phone numbers, websites, and e-mail addresses to assist retirees in their military-affiliated endeavors.
