The Air Force Personnel Center has been granted expanded waiver authority to waive some active duty service commitments for Airmen interested in voluntary separation under the fiscal year 2014 force management program, AFPC officials announced April 3.

For example, we now have the authority to waive aviation retention pay (which requires recoupment of the unserved portion of the bonus) and up to 72 months of an undergraduate flying training ADSCs,î said Col. Joe Atkins, operations division chief.

The expanded waiver authority also allows AFPC to waive up to 36 months of advanced flying training (to include instructor and qualification training) ADSCs, up to 36 months of Air Force Institute of Technology ADSC, up to 24 months of medical residency training ADSC, and up to 48 months of medical special pays and bonuses (which requires recoupment of the unserved portion of the bonus). The full list of waiver authorities is available on myPers.

The Palace Chase program is one of many voluntary programs affected by expanded waiver authority. AFPC can facilitate more Airmen interested in applying for Palace Chase to continue their service in the Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard.

Voluntary separation pay and Temporary Early Retirement Authority are also among several voluntary separation and retirement programs included in fiscal 2014 force management. The VSP application window closes May 1, so Airmen restricted by waiver-required ADSCs may now be eligible to apply for VSP, said Atkins. In addition, because the TERA window ended, the Air Force will announce plans to open another TERA window to ensure those previously affected Airmen have an opportunity to apply for a voluntary program.

Additional guidance for Airmen affected by the waiver authority will be available next week when updated voluntary separation pay and Temporary Early Retirement Authority personnel service delivery memorandums are posted to myPers.
