Online Retirement Requests Ready

Recommended Posts


MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The Navy announced a self-service function for Retirements and Separations within Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) in NAVADMIN 273/17 Nov. 15.

According to NAVADMIN 273/17, the functionality allows members to initiate requests electronically using NSIPS self-service, route them through their chain for review and recommendation and then electronically route the request to Navy Personnel Command for a decision. 

This new capability is another interim enhancement to our legacy systems while the new systems and processes of Sailor 2025 are finalized. 

"The process was originally announced in NAVADMIN 133/16 when we ran a successful operational evaluation in four regions," said Capt. Vince Smith, director, personal performance and career transition division. "The ability to submit online retirement and separation requests allows for online verification and will increase transparency of the application process for Sailors, their commands, personnel support detachments and Navy Personnel Command." 

Commands with access to NSIPS Web must set up their command hierarchy prior to the Jan. 1, 2018. Directions for setting up the hierarchy is posted on the NSIPS main page beneath the Training section, titled "User Productivity Kit (UPK)." In the UPK section, select "RnS Training," then "Command Setup Training." The NSIPS Web-Afloat implementation timeline depends on each ship and where it is in the modernization process. NSIPS-Web Afloat is scheduled to be completed in approximately 24 months. 

Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, officers will submit their voluntary resignation or retirement requests, and enlisted personnel will submit their requests to transfer to the Fleet Reserve using NSIPS. Deployed Sailors without access to NSIPS Web will submit their requests to their shore-based chain-of-command. 

Sailor 2025 is a modernization of the Navy's personnel system that is focused on adapting the Navy's workforce to new and evolving threats while continuing to attract and retain the best Sailors in a competitive talent market. Today, Sailor 2025 features 45 initiatives built on a framework of three pillars: a modern personnel system, a career learning continuum and career readiness.
