Forty-five AFSCs will no longer be eligible for the selective reenlistment bonus effective Dec. 5 with the advent of the new selective reenlistment bonus list, Air Force officials announced today.
SRB eligibility changes posture the Air Force for a smaller force driven by sequestration, said Brig. Gen. Gina Grosso, Air Force director of force management policy.

ìThe SRB program is a retention tool; as the force gets smaller, skills that were under-manned are no longer short and we are adjusting the bonus program accordingly,î says Grosso.

Critical and emerging career fields with high operations demands and low manning – such as battlefield Airmen and cyberspace specialties – still require attention, the general said, so some AFSCs will remain on the SRB list. As of Dec.5, AFSCs on the SRB list will include the following:

  • 1A8X1 Airborne Cryptologic Language Analyst
  • 1A8X2 Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Operator
  • 1B4X1 Cyberspace Defense Operations

  • 1N4X1A Fusion Analyst, Digital Network Analyst
  • 1T0X1 Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape
  • 1T2X1 Pararescue
  • 1W0X2 Special Operations Weather
  • 3E8X1 Explosive Ordnance Disposal

Due to recent changes in Department of Defense policy, Airmen who are in an AFSC being removed from the SRB listing will no longer have 30 days to reenlist from the date the AFSC is removed. Instead Airmen in an AFSC being removed will have through Dec. 4 to reenlist and receive an SRB. Anyone reenlisting on Dec. 5 or later will use the new SRB list. In addition to these changes Airmen will no longer be able to request accelerated SRB payments.
