JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — Eligible officers and enlisted members have until Aug. 1 to submit their application for separation under the fiscal year 2013 voluntary force management programs, Air Force officials reminded Airmen April 8.

Announced in February, fiscal 2013 force management programs support the Air Force effort to reduce manning to the authorized end-strength by Sept. 30.

Officer programs, available for specific year groups and overage career fields, include time in grade waivers for eligible lieutenant colonels, limited active-duty service commitment waivers, Palace Chase transfers to the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve, and the 10 to 8 Commissioned Years of Service Waiver program.

Enlisted voluntary programs, for those who are not in critical specialties, include limited active duty service commitment and time-in-grade waivers, waivers to enlistment contracts, and Palace Chase transfers to the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve.

Applications, due Aug. 1, must be submitted via the virtual MPF. Those approved for retirement must retire by Sept. 1. Separations must be completed by Sept. 29.

Airmen who separate or retire must attend the mandatory five-day Transition Assistance Program workshop. TAP helps Airmen prepare for post-military life, offering instruction and guidance on resume development, job hunting and more.

Full eligibility requirements and application procedures for officer and enlisted force management programs are available on myPers at https://mypers.af.mil. Enter PSDM 13-09 in the search window for officer programs and PSDM 13-10 for enlisted programs.
