Permissive TDY allowed for voluntary force management separation

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas – Airmen who separate under voluntary and involuntary force management programs may be eligible for permissive TDY.

Airmen should check their separation orders to ensure the statement is included in the remarks block. The statement should read “Member separating voluntarily under force management program and may be eligible for (permissive) TDY according (Department of Defense Instruction) 1327.06.” The separation program designator, or SPD, code may not convey this benefit; however, the military personnel section is authorized to permit permissive TDYs.

A SPD code identifies entitlements and benefits associated with types of separations. According to Air Force Personnel Center officials, the benefit is new for voluntary force management separations and a new SPD code is being developed. In the interim, a statement is added to the separations orders.

“If you’re separating under a voluntary force management program and your orders do not include that statement, please contact the Total Force Service Center (or TFSC) to get your orders corrected,” said Lt. Col. Rick Garcia, the AFPC separations and retirements chief.

“We want to remind Airmen that permissive TDY is not an entitlement,” Garcia said. “Commanders will use discretion to approve or not approve a permissive TDY if their absence impacts the mission or if they don’t have enough time on active duty to use the benefit.”

The TFSC can be reached at (210) 565-0102 or DSN 665-0102.
