Three Things Sailors Need to Know About SRBs

The Navy announces updates to Selective Reenlistment Bonuses

1. Changes to the SRB list include 32 award level increases, 23 reductions, 27 skills added, and four skills eliminated. An additional 11 skills were removed this year, but they were rolled into other existing SRB skills, so those Sailors will still be eligible.

2. Increased award levels take effect immediately, and decreases will take effect 30 days after the release of NAVADMIN 081/14 on May 10.

3. SRBs reward Sailors who attain special training in skills most needed in the fleet, and helps meet critical skill reenlistment benchmarks and enhance Navy's ability to size, shape and stabilize manning. SRBs help manage the force at the rating and NEC level, rather than looking at just the overall end strength number.
