R 28 FEB 18
UNCLAS //N01001//
ALCGRSV 005/18
A. Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST M1001.28 (series)

1. This message announces an update to the Change in Reserve Component Category (RCC) Form, CG-1001.

2. The revised CG-1001 is the result of feedback from field units. The new CG-1001 is designed to provide greater clarity of the RCC process and allow commands and Reserve Force Readiness System (RFRS) staffs the ability to provide a detailed recommendation to ensure a more thorough vetting of RCC requests.

3. IAW reference (a) and established CG PSC-RPM business practices, the CG-1001 is required for all members requesting a change in RCC (i.e. SELRES, IRR, ASL or ISL). All RCC change requests shall be submitted through the member’s command and District/DOL-1/PAC-13 RFRS staff, to the CG PSC-RPM-1 Status Section at: ARL-PF-CGPSC-RPM-1-Status@uscg.mil. Members shall continue to drill until RCC approval is received from CG PSC-RPM to avoid potential recoupment due to advanced payment of SGLI premiums.

4. The updated CG-1001 is now available on CG Portal and on the internet at: http://www.dcms.uscg.mil/Our-Organization/Assistant-Commandant-for-C4IT-CG-6/The-Office-of-Information-Management-CG-61/Forms-Management/CG-Forms/.

5. Effective immediately, previous versions of the CG-1001 will no longer be accepted. RCC requests submitted after the release of this message using a previous version of the CG-1001, or without supporting documentation, will be returned without action.

6. Questions about the RCC process should be directed to unit RFRS staffs.

7. CG PSC-RPM POC: RPM-1 Status Section at ARL-PF-CGPSC-RPM-1-Status@uscg.mil.
