RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Enlisted members now have 77 Air Force specialties from which they can receive a selective re-enlistment bonus.
Officials said this fiscal year program retains a heavy emphasis on retaining Airmen with 17 months to six years of service and made adjustments in the 6 to 10 and 10 to 14 years of service zones. There were no adjustments in the 18 to 20 years of service zone.
"Balancing the enlisted force is a constant challenge; using SRBs is certainly one of the most effective retention tools the Air Force can employ to retain our number one priority ... our Airmen," said Michael McLaughlin, chief of Air Force re-enlistments at the Air Force Personnel Center here.
Officials added no Air Force specialty codes to the list and increased 13 AFSCs in at least one zone. Thirty-six AFSCs had a zone eliminated or decreased and 13 AFSCs were removed from the program.
All increases and additions went into effect May 16 and all decreases and deletions will go into effect June 15. Any re-enlistments or extensions of any length were completed prior to the official message release will remain valid. Airmen who are eligible for re-enlistment and are affected by decreases or removals should re-enlist before June 14 to receive the previously approved bonus.
These bonuses do not apply to Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard personnel.
To determine eligibility for re-enlistment with an SRB entitlement, members should contact the career development element at their local military personnel section.
