Reenlistment Eligibility

Reenlistment eligibility for selective reenlistment bonus information is now available: Reenlistment Eligibility for Selective Reenlistment Bonus ALCOAST 142/21 provides information regarding selective reenlistment bonus (SRB). In summary, members who previously extended their enlistment period due to obligated service requirements for transfer, training or advancement can cancel such extensions prior to their operative date in order to enact an immediate reenlistment are entitled to an SRB. Members who were previously denied SRB eligibility or who were improperly counseled and therefore did not apply for an applicable SRB may apply for eligibility determination and SRB entitlement. Members who have already commenced the extension of their enlistment, but otherwise would have been eligible prior to the operative date of that extension, may also apply for SRB eligibility determination. Questions about the these policies or other human resource management matters may email the Office of Military Personnel Policy (CG-133). Read this MyCG article
