Select Airmen in specific categories who were not formerly eligible for fiscal year 2014 force management voluntary separation are now being offered voluntary separation. These individuals will not be subject to involuntary programs in fiscal 2014.
Officers from 33 Air Force specialty codes by year group and enlisted Airmen from seven AFSCs by grade are now eligible to apply for voluntary force management programs, such as voluntary separation pay, limited active-duty service commitment waivers and more, Air Force Personnel Center officials said April 3. In addition, officers in 70 AFSCs by year group and enlisted members in 178 AFSCs by grade are no longer eligible to apply for voluntary programs, and they will not meet an involuntary board in FY14.
As with all voluntary force management programs, being eligible to apply does not guarantee that an Airman will be approved, said Col. Joe Atkins, the operations division chief. Air Force mission needs will determine how many Airmen are approved.
The changes are the result of already approved retirements and separations, as well as adjustments to the overall manpower requirements, Atkins said.
“After recalculations and taking into consideration voluntary separations and retirements, it was clear that personnel reductions were no longer necessary in some AFSC year groups,” he said.
