Some Airmen may be entitled to additional SRB money

Enlisted Airmen who retrained into a career field with a selective reenlistment bonus may be eligible for additional bonus money, even if they are now separated or retired from the Air Force.

Air Force officials are reviewing records of Airmen who over the past several years may have been paid less than they were authorized because of misinterpretation of the Air Force instruction governing reenlistment bonuses, said Michael McLaughlin, Air Force Personnel Center reenlistments chief.

“If you were in retraining status or approved for retraining within 30 days after an SRB termination or reduction announcement, “and” you reenlisted for at least 36 months within 30 days of earning your 3-level in the new career field, you may have been paid the wrong bonus multiple, provided your retraining approval and reenlistment were in the same zone” he said.

Air Force officials notified more than 325 Airmen who may have been underpaid.

While Air Force personnel teams work to resolve the problem and identify Airmen potentially affected, Airmen who did not get an email notification should check their records and contact their local military personnel section to determine if they were affected, McLaughlin said.

“You will need your reenlistment documents and course completion certificate when you meet with the personnel specialists, so be sure to have those available,” advised McLaughlin. “Although there isn’t a deadline to complete the process, affected Airmen should take care of this as soon as possible. It could take up to 45 days to process the payment, so the longer you delay, the longer you will have to wait for the funds.”

Airmen can access their reenlistment form via the virtual Military Personnel Flight, and those who have separated or retired will need to submit a DD Form 149, “Application for Correction of Military Records”, with their supporting documentation (reenlistment documents and course completion certificate).
