RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces revised Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) award levels and reenlistment policy for Active Component and Full-Time Support (FTS), and supersedes reference (a). Changes to navy enlisted classifications (NEC) as a result of the new NEC construct are reflected throughout this NAVADMIN. As a reference, both legacy and new NECs are listed below to show SRB eligible ratings/skills. Legacy NECs are annotated in this NAVADMIN as LNEC and new NECs are annotated as NNEC. Commands should check the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) website listed in paragraph 3 for updates as new NECs are released.

2. Increased award levels are effective immediately and decreased levels are effective 30 days after the release of this NAVADMIN.

3. Reenlistment requests for the following SRB award levels will be approved based on quota availability. SRB reenlistment requests must be submitted to Enlisted Career Administration/Enlisted Boards (PERS-813) via Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS) or Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) 35 to 120 days in advance of the requested reenlistment date for the Sailor. Eligible Sailors desiring SRB reenlistment are encouraged to work with their chain of command as early as possible within their reenlistment window to maximize potential for SRB. PERS-813 maintains the current list of SRB eligible ratings/skills based on available quotas at the following website. Addendums to the current award message posted on this site provide notification of skill closures and supersede the current NAVADMIN. For those commands with limited internet access, command career counselors (CCC) should contact PERS-813 directly for the latest updates.

4. FTS SRB award levels are as follows (Note: a – indicates a reduction from previous award level, a + indicates an increase from previous award level):

b. Notes

(1) NEC 0000, commonly referred to as quad zero, is listed here to establish that Sailors in these ratings/career fields can hold any or no NEC and still be qualified for the SRB provided they meet all other applicable non-NEC related criteria.

(2) Subsurface or surface designation does not mean an individual must be subsurface or enlisted surface warfare specialist qualified, but it indicates the component of the rating in which they can reasonably be expected to serve. Training, qualifications, and previous or projected duty assignments at sea will indicate the appropriate rating component. When using the force management system and the OPINS to input a SRB precertification request, use the rating (with appropriate suffix designation/NEC) as specified in this NAVADMIN. For example, a surface electronics technician with no NEC would submit ‘ET(SW)’ on precertification for rating.

(3) A SRB approval for all CT, IS, IT, and ITS ratings will be contingent upon the Sailor having a current single scope background investigation (SSBI) or Tier 5 investigation, an active SSBI/Tier 5 or recent submission of a SSBI/Tier 5 package. Commands must verify the Sailor has a current SSBI/Tier 5, active SSBI/Tier 5, or has submitted a SSBI/Tier 5 package and make note of this in the comments section of the precertification request.

(4) E-3 to E-6 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-7 advancement are not eligible for SRB.

(5) X is used as a placeholder to identify where multiple LNECs within a rating are eligible for a stated award level. Sailors in the specified rating that hold a LNEC that includes the numbers preceding X or XX are eligible for SRB. For example, SO 539XA includes SO 5391 and SO 5392 or 14XX includes all subsurface electronics technician navigation LNECs beginning with 14.

(6) Letters appearing with a LNEC are only for administrative use.

(7) Reenlistment bonuses for nuclear trained Sailors:

(a) Reenlistment compensation for zones 1 through 3 nuclear trained Sailors holding a nuclear supervisor NEC shall be provided under the Enlisted Supervisor Retention Pay (ESRP) Program in line with policies and procedures detailed in reference (b) along with current ESRP multiples.

(b) SRB entitlement for eligible nuclear-trained Sailors who reenlist after applying for an officer program will be held pending selection results. For nuclear trained Sailors only, the date on which conditional release is approved by Nuclear Propulsion Program Manager (OPNAV N133) as directed in reference (c) is considered the date of the application to an officer program with the exception of Seaman to Admiral-21 Program (Nuclear Option)(STA-21(N)) and Limited Duty Officer (LDO). For STA-21(N) and LDO, the application deadline is considered the suspense date.

(8) E-4 to E-6 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-7 advancement are not eligible for SRB.

(9) E-3 to E-5 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-6 advancement are not eligible for SRB.

(10) FC AEGIS 0000 SRB eligibility contingent upon graduation of an FCA NEC awarding “C” School.

(11) Sailors holding a CTI NEC must be differentiated by Enlisted Manning Code (EMC). Only Sailors having one of the following NECs and assigned in the respective EMC are eligible for SRB:
(a) LNEC(NNEC): 9SPA, EMC: B515
(b) LNEC(NNEC): 9520(813A)/9RUS, EMC: B516
(c) LNEC(NNEC): 9ARB/9PES, EMC: B511
(d) LNEC(NNEC): 9CMN, EMC: B512

6. Sailors must reenlist within 90 days and in the same fiscal year as their End of Active Obligated Service (OBLISERV (EAOS)), except in the following cases:

a. Nuclear trained Sailors.

b. Sailors eligible for combat zone tax exclusion (CZTE) are authorized to reenlist anytime within the same fiscal year as their EAOS. These Sailors, along with CCC must annotate in the remarks section of the precertification request whether they are currently CZTE eligible or serving in a qualified hazardous duty area. A condition of approval of their precertification request is that the reenlistment of the Sailor occurs in a month during which CZTE qualification applies.

c. Sailors who received an Early Promote in block 45 of their most recent regular periodic evaluation will be allowed to reenlist early any time within the fiscal year of their EAOS. No transfer, concurrent, or special evaluations will apply. Sailors advanced within the 12 months prior to their EAOS will be allowed to substitute the last regular periodic evaluation in their previous pay grade. Personnel must e-mail a signed copy of the evaluation to Enlisted Career Administration/Enlisted Boards Division (PERS-81) once their precertification has been submitted. This requirement is only for those that fall under the provisions of this paragraph.

7. SRB Submission Requirements

a. Commands are required to submit SRB reenlistment requests to PERS-813 via OPINS or NSIPS 35 to 120 days in advance of the requested reenlistment date of the Sailor. Requests submitted less than 35 days prior to the requested reenlistment date will be rejected. However, commands may contact PERS-813 for waiver eligibility and procedures. Sailors must have an approved SRB request before reenlisting. The servicing personnel office is responsible for verifying the reenlistment, posting the contract, releasing the first payment, and verifying the master military pay account. Commands shall immediately notify Military Pay and Compensation Division (OPNAV N130) when a Sailor fails to maintain eligibility in the skill for which SRB was paid (e.g. loss of security clearance, medical disqualification, loss of eligible NEC, misconduct) or when a Sailor has an approved separation with a remaining SRB contract obligation.

b. Career Waypoints – Reenlistment (C-WAY-REEN). Commands are authorized to submit SRB reenlistment requests prior to a Sailor receiving a C-WAY-REEN quota. However, the C-WAY-REEN quota request must be submitted. In these cases, the SRB request will not be processed until the Sailor has received C-WAY-REEN confirmation. SRB requests without C-WAY-REEN quota approval will be rejected in OPINS to keep the command informed of potential SRB approval issues. Once a Sailor has an approved C-WAY-REEN quota, the command should contact PERS-813 to clear any rejections. Failure to submit a SRB reenlistment request within the required 35 to 120 day submission window due to awaiting a C-WAY-REEN quota does not meet eligibility requirements for a 35 day submission waiver.

c. Sailors with approved SRB requests who do not reenlist on the date or for the term specified in the precertification message must have their command contact PERS-813 to initiate a reenlistment cancellation to avoid placing Sailors in an overpaid status.

d. To validate an inoperative extension of enlistment and expedite processing of a SRB request, include the following information in the remarks paragraph of the request: term, narrative reason, authority, and execution date of all inoperative extensions. Failure to verify extension will cause processing delays and may result in rejection of the request or an approval at a lower amount.

e. Sailors must obtain an approval for extension from PERS-813 in order to minimize the potential for loss of SRB eligibility.

f. For FTS SRB reenlistment requests, use one of the below listed type codes:
(1) CODE 1RR – Immediate Reenlistment for FTS SRB.
(2) CODE 1RB – Broken Service Reenlistment for FTS SRB.
(3) CODE 1RC – OBLISERV to Train and Reenlist for FTS SRB.

8. Acceptance of a NEC-specific SRB contract indicates an agreement between the Sailor and the Navy to use skills attributed to the NEC during the enlistment of the Sailor to meet fleet readiness requirements. In subsequent tours, a Sailor must be willing to be detailed during the normal projected rotation date window to an available billet within the SRB contracted NEC, consistent with sea- shore flow requirements. Lateral conversions must follow reference (d), paragraph 12d. Lateral conversion requests will normally not be processed more than nine months before the EAOS. Conversions to a rate with a lower award level normally will not be approved. Personnel in a closed-loop NEC can reenlist by the NEC only.

9. Reference (d), paragraph 12e, provides OBLISERV to Train (OTT) guidance. Requests are to be submitted to PERS-81 extension desk via e-mail. A copy of the authorization message should be retained by the Sailor until the SRB reenlistment on graduation day from the course of instruction. Use code 1CC (1RC for FTS) for OTT SRB request in OPINS or NSIPS. Additionally, OBLISERV requirements for schools are provided in reference (e). OBLISERV will be determined based on the course length as provided in paragraph 3.b of reference (e). Paragraph 3.c.(1) no longer applies.

10. In keeping with Department of Defense (DoD) policy, Sailors who accepted an enlistment bonus for extended enlistment (EBEE), as reflected on their Enlisted Bonus Payment Checklist (NAVCRUIT 1133/52 (Enlistment Guarantees, New Accession Training Program Enlistment Guarantee or Professional Apprenticeship Career Track Program Enlistment Guarantees)), are not authorized to use this inoperative extension time in the SRB calculation. Sailors who have inoperative extension time through a 5-year obligation or 6-year obligation program, or as authorized in the Control of Conditional Short Term Extensions NAVADMIN, may continue to have up to 24 months of inoperative extension time count towards the SRB calculation provided the reenlistment results in a new EAOS that is at least 24 months day-for-day past the current extended EAOS. This calculation is performed automatically by PERS-813. Local commands are not authorized to cancel or change extensions for the purpose of immediate SRB reenlistments. Commands must verify and annotate on the precertification request whether any inoperative extension time noted is part of an EBEE contract.

11. Repayment policy is governed by section 373 of Title 37 of U.S. Code, Chapter 2, Volume 7A, of the DoD Financial Management Regulation (FMR), and reference (d), which collectively determines when repayment of the unearned portion of a bonus is required or not required but left to secretarial discretion, or prohibited. Section 373 of Title 37 of U.S. Code requires repayment with certain exceptions. As a general rule, repayment of any unearned portion of a bonus will be sought.

13. The point of contact for a Sailor who has reenlisted and has not received their SRB payment, or has questions concerning the taxation of their SRB and annual installments, is the servicing pay office or personnel support detachment of the Sailor. SRB tax information is also discussed in DoD FMR, Volume 7A, Chapter 44, table 44-1, rule 7. The point of contact for a Sailor with questions regarding the SRB program or any information on their on- line personnel account is their CCC.

Your SRB is calculated by multiplying your 2018 basic military pay (times) number of SRB eligible months reenlisting for (divided by 12) then multiplied by the SRB award level for your zone. Zone A is 2 to 6 years, Zone B is 6 to 10 years and Zone C is 10 to 14 years of active service.

    I have 5 years and im now into my 2nd enlistment that I signed in November 2016. Do I qualify for SRB? I’m AO2

    Everette,

    As far as I know at the tier three bonus level, you cannot reenlist until you are within 90 days of your EAOS. Talk to your CCC for more details.
