Airmen who exceed deployed time get added time off

WASHINGTON (AFNS) — Airmen who serve in excess of the Secretary of Defense’s established rotation goals are now eligible for additional time off, as written in the newly updated Post Deployment or Mobilization Respite Absence policy, officials said here April 25.

Contained in Guidance Memorandum 4 to Air Force Instruction 36-3003, Military Leave Program, PDMRA is intended to award extra administrative absence days to service members who exceed the desired deployment or mobilization-to-dwell ration.

All eligible Airmen can receive PDMRA for service in Combat Zone Tax Exclusion areas. Reserve component Airmen involuntarily mobilized outside of the U.S. pursuant to sections 12301(a), 12302, or 12304 of Title 10 of the United States Code can also be eligible to receive PDMRA.

Receiving PDMRA is a two-step process: eligibility and accrual, officials said.

Airmen must have exceeded the desired deployment or mobilization-to-dwell threshold in order to accrue PDMRA.

Active component Airmen are eligible to accrue PDMRA if, on the first day of their current deployment, they have been deployed in excess of 12 of the previous 36 months.

Reservists are eligible to accrue PDMRA if, on the first day of their current Title 10 activation, they had been mobilized pursuant to sections 12301(a), 12302, or 12304 of Title 10 of the United States Code in excess of 12 months out of the previous 72 months. In addition, voluntary deployments on 12301(d) orders to a CZTE area count toward breaking dwell and PDMRA eligibility.

Airmen who exceed the desired deployment or mobilization-to-dwell threshold on the first day of their current deployment or Title 10 activation can accrue PDMRA for service in approved locations.

Eligible active duty Airmen accrue two PDMRA days per month when entitled to CZTE for service in a CZTE area.

Eligible Reservists serving pursuant to sections 12301(a), 12301(d), 12302, or 12304 of Title 10 of the United States Code accrue two PDMRA days per month when entitled to CZTE for active service in a CZTE area. Reservists serving pursuant to sections 12301(a), 12302, or 12304 of Title 10 of the United States Code accrue one PDMRA day per month for active service outside of the U.S., not in a CZTE area.
