WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy updated the Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) award plan for active component (AC) and full time support (FTS) Sailors in NAVADMIN 119/18 released May 14.

This NAVADMIN updates NAVADMIN 032/18 by adding 39 skills in 12 ratings and increasing award levels for 135 skills in 48 ratings. There are no decreases or deletions of skills in this update.

The NAVADMIN allows Sailors' reenlistment for SRB within 180 days of End of Active Obligated Service (EAOS) and increases the window for some Sailors SRB reenlistment.

The NAVADMIN increased windows for SRB reenlistment for Sailors who are:
*Within one year of EAOS for Sailors who received an Early Promote (EP) in block 45 of their most recent regular periodic evaluation, as well as Sailors reenlisting in a combat zone tax exclusion (CZTE).
*Within one year of detachment month for obligated service (OBLISERV) Sailors.

SRB changes are based on a mid-fiscal year review of bonus utilization and reenlistment requirements by community managers.

SRB serves as an incentive for those Sailors with critical skills and experience to remain in the Navy. Enlisted community managers continuously monitor the health of their community to maintain acceptable manning levels in critical skills, and recommend adjustments to SRBs when necessary.

Eligible Sailors desiring SRB reenlistment are encouraged to work with their Command Career Counselor (CCC), command master chiefs and chain of command to discuss timing of reenlistment and procedures well before their EAOS. Requests are required to be submitted a minimum of 35 days prior to the requested reenlistment date.

Sailors can keep informed of award changes through the Navy's SRB webpage at and review the NAVADMIN for a complete listing of changes to skills award levels eligible for SRBs.
