DOS rollback included in FY14 force management

In addition to force management programs announced in July, the Air Force will implement the Enlisted Date of Separation Rollback Program for fiscal year 2014, Air Force Personnel Center officials said today.

The rollback will accelerate the date of separation for senior master sergeants and below who meet required criteria, said Lt. Col. RicK Garcia, AFPC retirements and separations branch chief. Airmen affected must separate from the Air Force by May 31, 2014, and those eligible to retire must do so effective May 1, 2014 or sooner.

Airman can be considered for the DOS rollback only if they meet all of the following:

  • Have fewer than 15 years on active duty as of May 31, or 20 years or more on or before April 30.
  • Have a May 31, 2015 or earlier DOS for Airmen eligible to be separated, or April 30, 2015 DOS or earlier for retirement-eligible Airmen.
  • Have a 3D or 3E reenlistment code, an 09 assignment availability code or a 3E grade status reason that renders them ineligible to reenlist.

Codes used to identify Airmen for DOS rollback will reflect Airmen who have refused to acquire retainability for promotion, temporary duty, permanent change of station, training, retraining or professional military education.

Airmen eligible to retire may also be vulnerable to DOS rollback separation, Garcia said.

Retirement is not automatic. If you are eligible to retire and identified for DOS rollback, you must submit a retirement application by Jan. 31, 2014, for the May 1 or earlier retirement. If you do not, you will be separated instead, and will not receive retirement benefits, he explained.
Airmen separated or retired under DOS rollback will not be required to repay unearned portions of bonuses, special pays or other monetary incentives, Garcia said. They will also not be entitled to any unpaid portions of bonuses, special pays, or other monetary incentives.

Airmen affected by the rollback may also be entitled to separation pay, the colonel said.

Airmen who have between six but less than 20 years of active service who are not first termers may be eligible for full separation pay, if they sign an Individual Ready Reserve Agreement. In addition, Airmen on active duty for 180 days or more 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.

In addition to those separation benefits, retiring and separating members are required to participate in a comprehensive transition assistance program which includes four mandatory elements: pre-separation counseling, a five-day workshop, a VA benefits briefing, and a capstone review.

Optional additional training seminars and extensive one-on-one career counseling are available at their respective installations, Garcia explained.
