WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Navy released an update to the Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) award plan Feb.18 in NAVADMIN 036/16 that includes 14 award level increases, 54 award level decreases, 15 skills added, and 32 skills removed from the last SRB NAVADMIN 057/15 released in April 2015.

Increased award levels are effective immediately and decreases take effect in 30 days.

SRB rewards 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. Award levels are adjusted as reenlistment requirements for specific ratings and skill sets are met.

This update also provides Sailors in Tier 2 and Tier 3 skills levels the flexibility for reenlistment within 180 days of their reenlistment expiration of active obligated service (EAOS) even if the EAOS is beyond Oct 1, 2016 thus crossing fiscal years.

Enlisted Community Managers continuously monitor the health of their community and make recommendations to leadership, as required, to maintain acceptable manning levels in critical skills. As reenlistment requirements for specific ratings and skill sets are met, award levels are reduced to zero and posted on the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) SRB webpage

Eligible Sailors desiring SRB reenlistment are encouraged to work with their command career counselors, 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.
