Buckley AFB Military Retiree Activities Office (RAO)
Are you a military retiree or the spouse/widow of a military retiree? Do you have a question/problem related to DEERS/ID cards, casualty assistance, SBP, TRICARE, the VA, retired pay, mil records, wills, powers of attorney, prescriptions, etc? If you answered “Yes” to these questions the Buckley AFB Retiree Activities Office (RAO) is available to help you! If our volunteers don’t know the answer to your question they can put you in touch with a subject matter expert who can!
Where is the RAO located? We’re in Room 164 of the Mission Support Building (Bldg 606) on Buckley AFB, on A-Basin Ave just off Aspen Street. You will need a current military retiree ID card to get on base.
What are your hours? Our hours are limited by the number of volunteers we have. Currently there is usually a volunteer in the office on Mondays from 1300-1600 and Tuesdays from 1000-1300. Even if there is no one in the office you can call us and leave a voice mail (VM) with your issue, your name and your phone number and someone will follow up with you. In addition to the phone, you can also send us an e-mail.
How can I contact you? You can call 720-847-6693 anytime – just leave a VM if no one answers. You can also send us an e-mail at RAO.Buckley@us.af.mil.
Do you host any events on base for military retirees? We have a Retiree Appreciation Day annually with numerous vendors to provide information on topics of interest to military retirees, etc. In the near future we hope to set up periodic “socials” on base and have guest speakers to provide info on topics of interest (Tricare, Long Term Health Care, Legislative Updates, etc).
The Buckley AFB RAO is responsible for over 16,000 military retirees in northern Colorado. The majority of these retirees don’t even know the RAO is available to them so please help spread the word! If we can assist you in any way please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 720-847-6693. We look forward to serving you!
