The new fiscal 2014 force management temporary early retirement authority application window is now open. The window is open from April 15 – May 13 and is for Airmen who were unable to apply during the original application window that ended March 26 due to unwaiverable active-duty service commitments, deployment status or a short tour assignment.

There are no enlisted TERA applications still pending and all Airmen should have been notified. If you have questions, contact the Total Force Service Center.

Officer TERA

AFPC received more than 1,000 officer TERA applications. As of April 18, more than 350 applications have been approved with notifications already sent. Approximately 100 applications are still being processed.

AFPC has received more than 1,200 officer and 6,800 enlisted applications. Even though the VSP window does not close until May 1, more than 340 officer and approximately 2,400 enlisted VSP applications have been approved as of Apr. 18.
