GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. PURPOSE.  THIS BULLETIN ANNOUNCES THE SRB PROGRAM AUTHORIZED FOR FY14 AND THE SUSPENSION OF THE FY14 BSSRB PROGRAM.  FIRST TERM MARINES (ZONE A) WHO REENLIST ON OR AFTER 1 JUL 2013 ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FY14 SRB PROGRAM.  CAREER MARINES (ZONE B AND C) WHO REENLIST ON OR AFTER 1 JUL 2013 ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FY14 SRB PROGRAM.  THIS WILL INCLUDE:
   A. ANY REGULAR COMPONENT FIRST TERM OR CAREER MARINE WITH AN END OF CURRENT CONTRACT (ECC) FROM 1 OCT 2013 TO 30 SEP 2014.
   B. PRIOR SERVICE REGULAR COMPONENT MARINES WHO REENLIST BACK INTO THE ACTIVE COMPONENT WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED TO REENLIST AFTER 1 JAN 2014.  ADDITIONALLY, THE BSSRB PROGRAM WILL BE SUSPENDED FOR THE DURATION OF FY14.  HOWEVER, IF RETENTION REQUIREMENTS CHANGE TROUGHOUT FY14, 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 ABSSRB, 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.
3. KEY ELEMENTS OF THE FY14 SRB PROGRAM.
   A. THE FY14 SRB PROGRAM IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO MARINES THAT HAVE AN FY14 ECC AS DEFINED IN PARA 1.A OF THIS BULLETIN.
   B. BOATSPACE CAPS APPLY TO FY14 FTAP MARINES.  BOATSPACE CAPS WILL ONLY BE EXCEEDED IN EXCEPTIONAL CASES, UPON APPROVAL BY CMC (MMEA-6). ONLY FY14 FTAP REENLISTMENTS WILL COUNT TOWARD THE FY14 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 FY14 ZONE C 0372 REQUIREMENT HAS BEEN MET, FY14 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 0861 GUNNERY SERGEANT WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION REENLISTS PRIOR TO THE DTG OF RELEASE OF THE SELECTION MARADMIN WILL RECEIVE AN SRB OF 15,500 DOLLARS.  ALSO, A ZONE C 0861 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 15,500 DOLLARS.  HOWEVER, A ZONE C 0861 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 2013 TO 30 SEP 2014.  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 2013 TO 30 SEP 2014.
   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.
      F.1 AS A CONTINUATION OF THE FY13 SRB POLICY, SRB AMOUNTS ARE CAPPED AT THE 48 MONTH AMOUNT LISTED IN PARAGRAPHS 3J, 3K, AND 3L BELOW.
      F.2 AS A CONTINUATION OF THE FY13 SRB POLICY, THE 125% SRB RATE HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR FY14 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.
   G. OBLIGATED SERVICE AND COMPUTATION OF SRB.  THE SRB DOLLAR AMOUNT IS IMPACTED BY THE NUMBER OF MONTHS OF OBLIGATED SERVICE FOR WHICH THE MARINE REENLISTS.  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 OBLIGATED SERVICE TO GET THE FULL SRB.  MARINES WHO REENLIST FOR 36 TO 47 MONTHS OF OBLIGATED SERVICE ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A REDUCED SRB.  MARINES WHO REENLIST FOR LESS THAN 36 MONTHS OF 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 OBLIGATED SERVICE.  MARINES WILL RATE THE BONUS APPLICABLE TO THEIR SRB ZONE, THEIR GRADE, AND THEIR MOS AS AUTHORIZED IN THIS MARADMIN.
     G.1 EXAMPLE: A MARINE WHOSE ECC IS 15 MAR 14 AND IS REENLISTING WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF 14 MAR 14 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 14 AND IS REENLISTING WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF 16 MAR 14 WILL BE REQUIRED TO REENLIST FOR 48 MONTHS IN ORDER TO RATE THE FULL SRB PAYMENT.  MARINES REENLISTING FOR OTHER THAN 48 MONTHS OF OBLIGATED SERVICE WILL RATE THE NUMBER OF MONTHS OF OBLIGATED SERVICE/48 MONTHS X THE SRB AUTHORIZED ROUNDED TO THE NEAREST DOLLAR, NOT TO EXCEED THE FULL SRB AMOUNT LISTED IN PARAGRAPHS 3J, 3K, AND 3L.
     G.3 EXAMPLE: A 0511 CPL IN ZONE A DECIDES TO REENLIST FOR 39 MONTHS OF OBLIGATED SERVICE, HIS ECC IS 15 DEC 13 PRIOR TO REENLISTMENT, AND AFTER REENLISTMENT HIS ECC IS 15 MAR 17.  THE SRB AUTHORIZED WILL BE AS FOLLOWS: 39 MONTHS/48 MONTHS X 13,750 DOLLARS = 11,172 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 OF OBLIGATED SERVICE AT TIME OF REENLISTMENT.  THE SRB AUTHORIZED WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULL SRB AMOUNT OF 50,500 DOLLARS.
   H. SRB PAYMENT CAPS. FOR FY14, NO SRB PAYMENT WILL EXCEED 100,000 DOLLARS BY INSTRUCTION.
