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.‚Äč

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 & Service Obligation for IS "A" School 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 for eligibility and computation guidance. Use the FY 20 Eligibility Checklist to ensure all administrative requirements are met before submitting an SRB request to PPC. Note: FY21 updates will be posted soon.

You must include the FY20 SRB Eligibility Checklist (Note: FY21 updates will be posted soon). 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.
