RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces revised Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) 
award levels and reenlistment policy for Active Component (AC) and Full-Time 
Support (FTS).  This NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a).

2.  Decreased award levels are effective 30 days after notification through 
this NAVADMIN or posting on the Navy Personnel Command website.

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:  
http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/pages/srb.aspx.  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.

    b.  Notes
        (1) Navy Enlisted Classification (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 Service Member having a current single scope background 
investigation (SSBI), an active SSBI or recent submission of a SSBI package.  
Commands must verify the Service Member has a current SSBI, active SSBI, or 
has submitted a SSBI package and make note of this in the comments section of 
the precertification request.
        (4) E-3 to E-6 personnel only.
        (5) X is used as a placeholder to identify where multiple NECs within 
a rating are eligible for a stated award level.  Service Members in the 
specified rating that hold a NEC 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 NECs beginning 
with 14.
        (6) Letters appearing with a NEC are only for administrative use.
        (7) Reenlistment bonuses for nuclear trained personnel:
            (a) Reenlistment compensation for zones 1 through 3 nuclear 
trained personnel 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 Service Members 
who reenlist after applying for an officer program will be held pending 
selection results.  For nuclear trained personnel only, the date on which 
conditional release is approved by Nuclear Propulsion Program Manager (N133) 
as directed in reference (c) is considered the date of the application to an 
officer program.
        (8) E-4 to E-6 personnel only.
        (9) E-3 to E-5 personnel only.

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
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.
    b.  Career Waypoints - Reenlistment (C-WAY-REEN).  Commands are 
authorized to submit SRB reenlistment requests prior to a Service Member 
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 
Service Member has received C-WAY-REEN confirmation.  SRB requests without C-
WAY-REEN approval will be rejected in OPINS to keep the command informed of 
potential SRB approval issues.  Once a Service Member 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, personnel 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.

12.  To ensure all requirements and timelines are met, visit the following 
SRB page of the NPC website:
http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/Pages/SRB.aspx.

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.  For technical questions or clarification, 
CCCs, not individual Sailors, are encouraged to contact MMNCM James Lucky, 
PERS-813, at (901)874-3215/DSN 882 or via e-mail at james.lucky1(at)navy.mil, 
or Mr. Francisco Palomo at (901) 874-3915/DSN 882, or via e-mail at 
francisco.palomo(at)navy.mil, or the SRB Help Desk at (901)874-2526/DSN 882.

14.  We will continue to assess retention behavior and adjust SRB award 
levels accordingly.

15.  This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or cancelled, 
whichever comes first.
