RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces revised selective reenlistment bonus (SRB) 
award levels for active component (AC) and full time support (FTS).  This 
NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a).
 
2.  Increased award levels are effective immediately and decreased levels are 
effective 30 days after the release of this NAVADMIN.
 
3.  Continuing with the policy initiated by reference (b), reenlistment 
requests for the following SRB award levels will be approved based on quota 
availability.  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.  Navy Personnel Command 
Enlisted Career Administration Division (PERS-81) maintains the current list 
of SRB eligible ratings/skills based on available quotas at the following 
npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/pages/srb.aspx.  For those commands with 
limited internet access, command career counselors should contact Enlisted 
Active Programs (PERS-811) directly for the latest updates.
 
4.  FTS new reenlistment contracts for SRB are not currently being accepted.  
AC SRB award levels are as follows (Note:  An *** indicates level located in 
other sections of paragraph 4; a *-* indicates a reduction from previous 
award level; a *+* indicates an increase from previous award level):

5.  Notes
    a.  The SRB for this rating or Navy enlisted classification (NEC) is tied 
to an incumbent billet or to orders negotiated for the next billet.  Commands 
must verify if the member is currently in, or has orders to a billet 
requiring this NEC and annotate this verification in the comments section of 
the precertification request.  Personnel not in their negotiating window at 
the time of reenlistment should sign NAVPERS 1070/613, Administrative 
Remarks, agreeing to take orders to an NEC billet.  The NAVPERS 1070/613 
should be forwarded to member*s respective detailer.
    b.  An SRB approval for all CT, IS, IT, and ITS ratings will be 
contingent upon member having a current single scope background investigation 
(SSBI), an active SSBI or recent submission of an SSBI package.  Commands 
must verify the member has a current SSBI, active SSBI, or has submitted an 
SSBI package and make note of this in the comments section of the 
precertification request.
    c.  Reenlistment bonuses for nuclear trained personnel:
        (1) Reenlistment compensation for zone 1-3 nuclear trained personnel 
holding a nuclear supervisor NEC shall be provided under the enlisted 
supervisor retention pay (ESRP) program in accordance with (IAW) policies and 
procedures detailed in reference ©. Current ESRP multiples are detailed in 
reference (d).
        (2) SRB entitlement for eligible nuclear-trained service members who 
reenlist after applying for an officer program will be held pending selection 
results.  The date on which conditional release is approved by Nuclear 
Propulsion Programs (N133) per reference (e) is considered the date of the 
application to an officer program.
    d.  Letters appearing with an NEC are only for administrative use.
    e.  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 officer personnel information system (OPINS) to 
input an 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 'ETSW' on 
precertification for rating.
    f.  Subsurface NECs.  Subsurface electronics technician 14XXA identifies 
all subsurface electronics technician communications Sailors who hold NECs 
beginning with 14.  Subsurface electronics technician navigation 14XXB 
identifies subsurface electronics technician navigation Sailors and includes 
all subsurface electronics technician navigation NECs beginning with 14.
    g.  Ratings eligible for NEC 0304 are:  AWO, ET, QM, and OS.
    h.  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.
    i.  E-3 to E-6 personnel only.
    j.  E-4 to E-6 personnel only.
    k.  This skill was rolled into 14XXA.
 
6.  Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Guidance.  Sailors assigned to LCS platforms 
or with orders to an LCS platform who possess multiple NECs specifically 
required for LCS assignment are authorized to reenlist for the most lucrative 
SRB-eligible NEC, regardless of assigned rating.
 
7.  Reenlistment Opportunity:
    a.  Sailors serving in tier one skills are eligible to reenlist any time 
within the same fiscal year of their end of active obligated service (EAOS).
    b.  Sailors serving in a tier two or three skill must reenlist in the 
same fiscal year as their EAOS and within 90 days of their EAOS.
    c.  Sailors serving in a tier two or three skill and eligible for combat 
zone tax exclusion (CZTE) are authorized to reenlist anytime within the same 
fiscal year as their EAOS.  These Sailors along with command career 
counselors (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 Sailor*s reenlistment occurs in a month during which CZTE 
qualification applies.
    d.  Sailors serving in tier two or tier three SRB skills 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 paygrade.  
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.
 
8.  SRB Precertification Requirements:
    a.  Career Waypoints - Reenlistment (C-WAY-REEN):  Commands are 
authorized to submit SRB reenlistment requests prior to a member receiving a 
C-WAY-REEN quota; however, the C-WAY-REEN quota request must have been 
submitted and the SRB request will not be processed until the member has 
received C-WAY-REEN confirmation.  SRB requests without C-WAY-REEN approval 
will still be rejected in the OPINS to keep the command informed of potential 
SRB approval issues.  Once a member has an approved C-WAY-REEN quota, the 
command should contact PERS-81 to clear any rejections.
    b.  Commands are required to submit SRB reenlistment requests to PERS-81 
via OPINS or Navy standard integrated personnel system (NSIPS) 35-120 days in 
advance of the Sailor’s requested reenlistment date.  Requests submitted less 
than 35 days prior to the requested reenlistment date will be rejected; 
however, commands may contact PERS-81 for waiver eligibility and procedures.  
Sailors must have approved precertification 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.
    c.  Sailors with approved precertification who do not reenlist on the 
date or for the term specified in the precertification message must have 
their command contact PERS-81 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 an 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-81 in order 
to minimize the potential for loss of SRB eligibility.
 
9.  NEC-Specific SRB and Lateral Conversions.  Acceptance of an NEC-specific 
SRB contract indicates an agreement between the Sailor and the Navy to use 
skills attributed to the NEC during the Sailor’s enlistment 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 (f), paragraph 12d.
Lateral conversion requests will not be processed more than nine months 
before the EAOS.  Conversions to a rate with a lower award level will not be 
approved.  Personnel in a *closed-loop* NEC can reenlist by the NEC only.
 
10.  Obligated Service to Train (OTT) and then Reenlist.  See reference (f), 
paragraph 12e, for 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.
 
11.  Inoperative Extensions Policy.  In keeping with Department of Defense 
(DoD) policy, personnel who accepted an enlistment bonus for extended 
enlistment (EBEE), as reflected on their NAVCRUIT 1133/52 (EG, NAT or PACT), 
are not authorized to use this inoperative extension time in the SRB 
calculation.  Sailors who have inoperative extension time through a five-year 
obligation or six-year obligation program, or as authorized in NAVADMIN 
007/09, 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-81.  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.
 
12.  Repayment.  Repayment policy is governed by Title 37 U.S. Code 373, and 
references (e), (g) and (h), which collectively determine when repayment of 
the unearned portion of a bonus is required, not required but left to 
secretarial discretion, or prohibited.  Title 37 U.S. Code 373 requires 
repayment with certain exceptions.  As a general rule, repayment of any 
unearned portion of a bonus will be sought.
    a.  Repayment will not be sought when a member fails to complete an SRB 
contract IAW with the complete policy cited for each of the following 
circumstances:
        (1) Death, not due to misconduct, IAW reference (e).
        (2) Incurs an injury or illness, not due to misconduct, under 
specified conditions, resulting in separation or retirement for disability 
under Title 10 U.S. Code, chapter 61, IAW reference
(e).
        (3) Separation under a hardship or sole survivor discharge IAW 
reference (f); and
        (4) Completion of the contract is prevented by the Navy due
to specified management actions IAW reference (e).     
       b.  Repayment is at discretion of secretarial process when a member 
fails to complete an SRB contract IAW the complete policy cited for each of 
the following circumstances.  Repayment action will be initiated for these 
circumstances, until and unless the secretarial process waives or remits 
recoupment:
        (1) Separation for medical reasons not covered by paragraph 12a(2), 
IAW reference (e);
        (2) Medical reasons preclude completion of SRB contract, but member 
is not separated and continues in another capacity IAW reference (e); and
        (3)  The secretarial process determines that recoupment is contrary 
to a personnel policy or management objective, against equity or good 
conscience, or contrary to the best interest of the United States IAW 
reference (e).
    c.  Repayment is required for the following circumstances:
        (1) An approved request for voluntary release from the written 
agreement specifying the condition for receipt of the bonus or voluntary 
separation from the naval service;
        (2) An approved voluntary request for relief from a qualifying 
assignment;
        (3) Failure to execute orders to a billet commensurate with the 
individual*s specialty or skill, grade, or career progression;
        (4) Disability or physical disqualification resulting from 
misconduct, willful neglect, or incurred during a period of unauthorized 
absence;
        (5) Separation for cause, including misconduct;
        (6) An approved detachment for cause;
        (7) Separation by reason of weight control and/or physical readiness 
test failure; and
        (8) Any other situation not covered by paragraph 12c.
 
13.  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/payandbenefits/N130/pages/N130D.aspx.
 
14.  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
