Date of separation rollback phase II underway

The Air Force has implemented fiscal 2013 force management enlisted date of separation rollback program phase II, Air Force Personnel Center officials said June 12.

DOS rollback is one of several voluntary and non-voluntary programs implemented during fiscal 2013 to help bring overall force numbers to congressionally mandated levels, said Lt. Col. Tara White, the AFPC Retirements and Separations branch chief.

The rollback will accelerate the date of separation for senior master sergeants and below who meet required criteria. Affected Airmen must separate from the Air Force by Sept. 20, and those eligible to retire must do so effective Aug. 1 or earlier.

The rollback program also allows commanders to consider Airmen for selective reenlistment early, if they meet program criteria.

Airman can be considered for the DOS rollback only if they:

  • Have fewer than 14 years or more than 20 years of total active federal military service as of Sept. 20, 2013, and
  • Have an Aug. 31, 2013 or later DOS for retirees or Sept. 20 DOS or later for separatees, and
  • Have one of the reporting identifiers, reenlistment eligibility codes, assignment eligibility codes or grade status reasons defined in the program commander action table (go to https://mypers.af.mil and search for PSDM 13-51).

 

Identifiers or codes that require separation are established when a second-term or career Airman refuses to get retainability for training, retraining, or professional military education or declines training, retraining, or PME; when an Airman waiting for retraining is disqualified for cause, when an Airman is awaiting discharge, separation or retirement for cause, and other similar circumstances, White said.

Airmen eligible for retirement who meet the criteria are also subject to DOS rollback.

Retirement-eligible members affected by the program must submit their retirement request by July 2.

“Enlisted retirement is not automatic, so affected members who don’t submit their request by July 2 will be projected for separation instead,” White said.

Airmen separated under DOS rollback won’t be required to return unearned portions of bonuses, special pays, or other monetary incentives, and will not be entitled to any unpaid portions of bonuses, special pays, or other monetary incentives.

If they meet Post-9/11 GI Bill eligibility requirements and are honorably discharged, involuntary separation will not affect their benefits. However, members who transferred education benefits to their dependents who do not complete their related active duty service commitment may be required to repay those benefits.

Airmen with six or more but less than 20 years of active service who are not in their initial term of enlistment may be authorized half separation pay, but will be required to sign an individual Ready Reserve agreement to receive that benefit.

In addition, Airmen who served 180 days or more on active duty who are separated under the DOS rollback will be authorized transition assistance benefits, such as permissive temporary duty, 180 days extended medical care for themselves and their family members, and two years of commissary and exchange privileges.
