GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. PURPOSE. THIS BULLETIN ANNOUNCES THE SRB PROGRAM AUTHORIZED FOR FY13 AND THE SUSPENSION OF THE FY13 BSSRB PROGRAM.  FIRST TERM MARINES (ZONE A) WHO REENLIST ON OR AFTER 1 JUL 2012 MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FY13 SRB PROGRAM. CAREER MARINES (ZONE B AND C) WHO REENLIST ON OR AFTER 1 OCTOBER 2012 MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FY13 SRB PROGRAM. THIS WILL INCLUDE:
   A. ANY REGULAR COMPONENT FIRST TERM OR CAREER MARINE WITH AN END OF CURRENT CONTRACT (ECC) FROM 1 OCT 2012 TO 30 SEP 2013.
   B. PRIOR SERVICE REGULAR COMPONENT MARINES WHO REENLIST BACK INTO THE ACTIVE COMPONENT WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED TO REENLIST AFTER 1 JAN 2013. ADDITIONALLY, THE BSSRB PROGRAM WILL BE SUSPENDED FOR THE DURATION OF FY13. HOWEVER, IF RETENTION REQUIREMENTS CHANGE THROUGHOUT FY13, THE BSSRB PROGRAM MAY BE REINSTATED. AT THAT TIME, PRIOR SERVICE MARINES WITH LESS THAN A 4-YEAR BREAK IN SERVICE BETWEEN REGULAR COMPONENT CONTRACTS MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A BSSRB, IF AVAILABLE.
2. BACKGROUND. RETAINING OUR COMBAT EXPERIENCED MARINES, AND THEIR COMBAT EXPERIENCED LEADERS, IS ONE OF THE COMMANDANT'S HIGHEST PRIORITIES AND IS VITALLY IMPORTANT IN SHAPING AND SUSTAINING THE MARINE CORPS. SPECIFIC CHANGES FROM THE FY12 SRB AND BSSRB PROGRAMS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
   A. SRB AMOUNTS ARE CAPPED AT THE 48 MONTH AMOUNT LISTED IN PARAGRAPHS 3J, 3K, AND 3L BELOW. 
   B. THE 125% SRB RATE HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR FY13 AND SRB PAYMENTS FOR ENLISTMENT PERIODS THAT EXCEED 48 MONTHS WILL NOT RATE AN INCREASED SRB AMOUNT.  FOR EXAMPLE, A MARINE WHO REENLISTS FOR A 60 MONTH PERIOD WILL RATE THE CAPPED, 48 MONTH SRB RATE.
3. KEY ELEMENTS OF THE FY13 SRB PROGRAM.
   A. THE FY13 SRB PROGRAM IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO MARINES THAT HAVE AN FY13 ECC AS DEFINED IN PARA 1.A OF THIS BULLETIN.
   B. BOATSPACE CAPS APPLY TO FY13 FTAP MARINES. BOATSPACE CAPS WILL ONLY BE EXCEEDED IN EXCEPTIONAL CASES, UPON APPROVAL BY CMC (MMEA-6). ONLY FY13 FTAP REENLISTMENTS WILL COUNT TOWARD THE FY13 FTAP MISSION.
   C. SRB(S) WILL BE SUSPENDED AS RETENTION REQUIREMENTS ARE MET.  CAREER MARINES MAY SUBMIT FOR REENLISTMENT WITHOUT REGARD TO RETENTION REQUIREMENTS, BUT REENLISTMENT AUTHORITY WILL BE WITHOUT SRB ONCE RETENTION REQUIREMENTS ARE MET. FOR EXAMPLE, ONCE THE FY13 ZONE C 0241 REQUIREMENT HAS BEEN MET, FY13 ZONE C CAREER MARINES WHO REENLIST ABOVE THE REQUIREMENT WILL RECEIVE NO SRB. 
   D. SRB AUTHORITY IS GRANTED FOR SERVICE IN THE PMOS. AS OF THE DTG OF THE MARADMIN ANNOUNCING APPROVED SELECTIONS TO FIRST SERGEANT/MASTER SERGEANT, MARINES SELECTED TO FIRST SERGEANT WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE AN SRB. MARINES ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION TO FIRST SERGEANT/MASTER SERGEANT WHO EXECUTE REENLISTMENT PRIOR TO THE RELEASE OF THE SELECTION MARADMIN WILL RECEIVE AN SRB IF ELIGIBLE.  EXAMPLE: A ZONE C 7314 GUNNERY SERGEANT WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION REENLISTS PRIOR TO THE DTG OF RELEASE OF THE SELECTION MARADMIN WILL RECEIVE AN SRB OF 15,250 DOLLARS. ALSO, A ZONE C 7314 GUNNERY SERGEANT WHO IS SELECTED TO MASTER SERGEANT AND REENLISTS AFTER THE DTG OF THE RELEASE OF THE SELECTION MARADMIN WILL RECEIVE AN SRB OF 15,250 DOLLARS. HOWEVER, A ZONE C 7314 GUNNERY SERGEANT WHO IS SELECTED TO FIRST SERGEANT AND REENLISTS AFTER THE DTG OF THE RELEASE OF THE SELECTION MARADMIN IS NO LONGER ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE AN SRB.   
   E. EXPIRATION OF CURRENT CONTRACT (ECC) ELIGIBILITY. ECC IS TO BE USED VICE END OF ACTIVE SERVICE (EAS) TO DETERMINE SRB-ELIGIBLE REENLISTMENTS. FIRST TERM SRB-ELIGIBLE REENLISTMENTS ARE LIMITED TO THOSE MARINES WITH AN ECC FROM 1 OCT 2012 TO 30 SEP 2013. CAREER FORCE SRB-ELIGIBLE REENLISTMENTS ARE LIMITED TO MARINES WHO HAVE REENLISTED AT LEAST ONCE AND FOR THOSE MARINES WITH AN ECC FROM 1 OCT 2012 TO 30 SEP 2013.    
   F. FLAT RATE SRB.  THE PRE-TAX FLAT RATE SRB AMOUNTS AUTHORIZED ARE BASED ON THE MARINE'S REENLISTMENT ZONE, THE MARINE'S GRADE ON THE DATE OF REENLISTMENT, AND THE MOS FOR WHICH THE MARINE IS REENLISTING.
   G. ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE AND COMPUTATION OF SRB. THE SRB DOLLAR AMOUNT IS IMPACTED BY THE NUMBER OF MONTHS OF ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE FOR WHICH THE MARINE REENLISTS. ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE IS DEFINED AS THE TIME BETWEEN THE MARINE'S ECC AT TIME OF REENLISTMENT AND THE ECC OF THE MARINE'S NEW CONTRACT IMMEDIATELY AFTER REENLISTMENT. MARINES MUST REENLIST FOR A MINIMUM OF 48 MONTHS OF ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE TO GET THE FULL SRB.  MARINES WHO REENLIST FOR 36 TO 47 MONTHS OF ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A REDUCED SRB. MARINES WHO REENLIST FOR LESS THAN 36 MONTHS OF ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ANY SRB. ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS CMC (MMEA-6) MAY AUTHORIZE REENLISTMENT PERIODS OF LESS THAN 48 MONTHS, THESE MARINES WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR AN SRB AT A PRORATED AMOUNT, AS LONG AS THE REENLISTMENT PERIOD INCLUDES AT LEAST 36 MONTHS OF ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE. MARINES WILL RATE THE BONUS APPLICABLE TO THEIR SRB ZONE, THEIR GRADE, AND THEIR MOS AS AUTHORIZED IN THIS MARADMIN.  ANY PORTION OF A MONTH WILL BE CONSIDERED A FULL MONTH WHEN COMPUTING UNUSED OBLIGATED SERVICE REMAINING ON A MARINES CURRENT CONTRACT.
     G.1 EXAMPLE: A MARINE WHOSE ECC IS 15 MAR 13 AND IS REENLISTING WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF 14 MAR 12 WILL BE REQUIRED TO REENLIST FOR 49 MONTHS IN ORDER TO RATE THE FULL SRB PAYMENT.
     G.2 EXAMPLE: A MARINE WHOSE ECC IS 15 MAR 13 AND IS REENLISTING WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF 16 MAR 13 WILL BE REQUIRED TO REENLIST FOR 48 MONTHS IN ORDER TO RATE THE FULL SRB PAYMENT.  MARINES REENLISTING FOR OTHER THAN 48 MONTHS ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE WILL RATE THE NUMBER OF MONTHS ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE/48 MONTHS X THE SRB AUTHORIZED ROUNDED TO THE NEAREST DOLLAR, NOT TO EXCEED THE FULL SRB AMOUNT LISTED IN PARAGRAPHS 4J, 4K, AND 4L. 
     G.3 EXAMPLE: A 0511 CPL IN ZONE A DECIDES TO REENLIST FOR 39 MONTHS ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE, HIS ECC IS 15 DEC 12 PRIOR TO REENLISTMENT, AND AFTER REENLISTMENT HIS ECC IS 15 MAR 16. THE SRB AUTHORIZED WILL BE AS FOLLOWS: 39 MONTHS/48 MONTHS X 9,000 DOLLARS = 7,313 DOLLARS. FINAL DETERMINATION OF ALL SRB AMOUNTS WILL BE MADE BY A DISBURSING OFFICE OR THE DEFENSE FINANCE ACCOUNTING SERVICE.
     G.4 EXAMPLE: A SGT IN ZONE A LAT MOVES INTO THE 0372 MOS AND REENLISTS FOR 60 MONTHS ADDITIONAL OBLIGATED SERVICE AS REQUIRED BY CURRENT FISCAL YEAR RETENTION GUIDELINES. THE SRB AUTHORIZED WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULL SRB AMOUNT OF 69,750 DOLLARS.
   H. SRB PAYMENT CAPS. FOR FY13, NO SRB PAYMENT WILL EXCEED 90,000 DOLLARS.
   I. YEARS OF SERVICE (YOS) CALCULATION. TO DETERMINE A MARINES YEARS OF ACTIVE MILITARY SERVICE THE ARMED FORCES ACTIVE DUTY BASE DATE (AFADBD) WILL BE USED FOR ALL MARINES.

IF THEY HAVE RECEIVED A ZONE A BONUS, OR IF NO ZONE A BONUS IS DESIGNATED, THEY MAY BE PAID A ZONE B BONUS. SRB PAYMENTS ARE LIMITED TO ONE PAYMENT PER ZONE.
