Retiree Activities

We want you to know, for the safety and health of the community, we are temporarily teleworking from home due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our office is available by appointment, only. No walk-in service at this time. For more information, please visit the Public Health or FSS Temporary Hours page. We will continue to update as new information becomes available.

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.
