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

FY 2022 Selective Reenlistment Bonuses (SRB)

Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 (1 October 2021 - 30 September 2022)

ALCOAST Commandant Change Notice (ACN) 104/21 announces the results of the Enlisted Workforce Planning Team (EWPT). The EWPT convened in May, 2021 to deliberate and recommend workforce policy interventions to the Assistant Commandant for Human Resources (CG-1). Interventions include non-monetary policy changes, Enlistment Bonuses (EB), Critical Skills Training Bonuses (CSTB), Selective Reenlistment Bonuses (SRB), and Critical Skills Retention Bonuses (CSRB).

Use the FY22 Eligibility ChecklistUpdated to ensure all administrative requirements are met before submitting an SRB request to PPC. 

You must include the FY22 SRB Eligibility Checklistupdate in the bonus payment request package sent via a PPC Customer Care Ticket, the bonus will not be processed until all documentation (including the checklist) is complete and delivered.

The following SRBs are in effect for FY 2022:

  • BM
    1. A $35,000 Zone A SRB is authorized for BM2 members who reenlist for an additional six (6) years of active duty service obligation.
  • CS
    1. A $30,000 Zone A SRB is authorized for CS members in paygrades E-4 through E-6 who reenlist for an additional six (6) years of active duty service obligation.
    2. A $10,000 additional payment is authorized for paygrade E-5 and E-6 CS members who are qualified Military Assignments and Authorized Absences, COMDTINST M1000.8A to assume the duties and responsibilities of a Food Service Officer (FSO) and who elect a Zone A SRB IAW ACN 104/21.
      • The FSO bonus is in addition to the Zone A SRB. If a member receives a prorated Zone A SRB, he or she will also receive a prorated FSO additional payment.
      • An Administrative Remarks, Form CG-3307 (SRB-05a), entry is required to document that a member is qualified for FSO assignment. This document must be signed by the member's Commanding Officer or Officer-in-Charge; "By Direction" or "Acting" signature authority is prohibited. Questions should be directed to PPC's Bonus Team, via a Customer Care trouble-ticket: PPC-DG-CustomerCare@uscg.mil.
      • Members must maintain this qualification throughout their new obligated service period. Members do not need to be currently assigned to an FSO billet or have the FSO competency code to receive the additional payment. If a member loses their FSO qualification or is no longer qualified for assignment to an FSO billet, the unearned portion of the bonus must be repaid as of the date of removal for the remainder of the contractual obligation.
      • Entitlement to the FSO bonus will not be restored when loss of qualification was due to personal fault, and the member later re-qualifies during the same contractual period.
  • OS
    1. A $50,000 Zone A SRB is authorized for OS members who reenlist for an additional six (6) years of active duty service obligation.
    2. A $30,000 Zone B SRB is authorized for OS members who reenlist for an additional six (6) years of active duty service obligation.

 

Notes:

  1. Members must be fully vaccinated, or have an approved religious accommodation or medical exemption from vaccination against COVID-19, in accordance with ALCOASTs 305/21 and 315/21, prior to payment of a bonus. Commanding Officers must verify vaccination status prior to submitting documentation to the P&A/SPO for payment processing.
  2. A bonus paid to a member who had an approved religious accommodation or medical exemption to the COVID-19 vaccination mandate is subject to repayment where that member fails to become fully vaccinated within two months after the expiration of the religious accommodation or medical exemption.
  3. All bonuses authorized by this ACN will be paid in lump sum IAW Military Bonus Programs, COMDTINST M7220.2, subject to 22% federal and applicable state income tax withholdings that are not contributed to a tax-deferred Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) account. Members desiring to contribute bonus monies to a TSP account must consider the TSP Elective Deferral limit and confirm election not less than 30 days prior to receipt of the bonus.
  4. Change to Military Bonus Programs. Sections 1.B.5.h. and 1.B.9.e., are amended to state: "Members who accept a bonus and during their obligated service period enter an officer training program as a commissioned or warrant officer are no longer authorized a bonus and must repay the unearned portion of the bonus upon appointment."
  5. Members considering appointment to the warrant or officer corps may still enlist, re-enlist, or extend their contract in one of the above mentioned ratings without electing to receive a bonus.
  6. CG-3307, Administrative Remarks, templates for FY 2022 SRBs are located at https://dcms.uscg.mil/ppc/pd/page7/#ICG_ETH_3768

 

FY 2021 Selective Reenlistment Bonuses (SRB)


Fiscal Year 2021 Enlisted Bonuses

ALCOAST Commandant Change Notice (ACN) 101/20 announces the results of the Enlisted Workforce Planning Team (EWPT). The EWPT convened from 29-30 April 2020 deliberate and recommend workforce policy interventions to the Assistant Commandant for Human Resources (CG-1). Interventions include non-monetary policy changes, Enlistment Bonuses (EB), Critical Skills Training Bonuses (CSTB), Selective Reenlistment Bonuses (SRB), and Critical Skills Retention Bonuses (CSRB). 

New Early Reenlistment Rules:

Members eligible for an SRB may reenlist at any time prior to their EOE within the Fiscal Year (FY) for which an SRB is offered. For example, if a member’s EOE is 04 August 2021 and eligible for an SRB offered in FY21, the member may choose to reenlist at any time after the start of the fiscal year (01 October 2020) and prior to their EOE.

All SRBs earned as a result of members reenlisting within the FY of their applicable EOEs will no longer be prorated for an early reenlistment. 
Members are now authorized the total bonus amount of the applicable SRB for EOE reenlistments. Exceptions to this policy change are for those members whose current enlistment incurred an obligated service due to a monetary bonus incentive or reenlistment during the 6, 10 and 14 year anniversaries. Other obligated service outside of EOE will continue to follow prorated policy calculations accounting for obligated service up to the member’s original active duty service commitment.​

Commanding officers are authorized to effect early discharge and reenlist members within the Fiscal Year of their 6th, 10th, or 14th year active service anniversary dates (not to be confused with the normal expiration of enlistment), for the purpose of qualifying for a Zone A, B, or C SRB. In such cases, SRB payments will be reduced by any portion of unserved service obligation. Commanding officers must ensure that such members are fully qualified to receive an SRB and advise them that all periods of unserved obligated service will be deducted from their bonus entitlement.

See ACN 124/20, Changes to Reenlistment Eligibility for Bonuses  for more information.  Also see ALCOAST 142/21 - REENLISTMENT ELIGIBILITY FOR SELECTIVE REENLISTMENT BONUS for amplifying guidance on reenlistment eligibility.

Refer to the SRB Knowledge Guide (Note: FY21 update coming soon!) for eligibility and computation guidance. Use the FY 21 Eligibility ChecklistUpdated to ensure all administrative requirements are met before submitting an SRB request to PPC. 

You must include the FY21 SRB Eligibility Checklistupdate in the bonus payment request package sent via a PPC Customer Care Ticket, the bonus will not be processed until all documentation (including the checklist) is complete and delivered.
