5. Monetary Incentives. Special Duty Assignment Pay (SDAP), AIP, and/or Voluntary Supplemental Incentives (VSI) are paid to eligible Marines assigned to certain billets. SDAP is authorized only for SDA billets. AIP will replace SDAP for all non-SDA billets previously designated for SDAP. VSI is a new incentive authorized only for SDA volunteers. Marines meeting the eligibility criteria in paragraph 4 may elect to receive AIP and/or VSI in monthly payments or as a single lump sum at the discretion of the Marine.
5.A. SDAP. SDAP is paid monthly to Marines assigned to SDAs to recognize the extremely demanding and greater than normal degree of responsibility of these duties.
5.B. AIP. AIP is paid monthly or in lump sum amounts to Marines assigned to difficult-to-fill assignments, locations, or units.
5.B.1. Monthly AIP. Monthly AIP is paid one-half of its dollar value on the first of the month and the other half paid on the 15th of the month. No written agreement is required to qualify for monthly AIP. The cumulative dollar value of monthly payments for a given assignment and tour length will be more than its corresponding single lump sum payment option. For example, 300 dollars paid each month for a 36-monthtour is 10,800 dollars. Its corresponding single lump sum payment option is 9,800 dollars vice 10,800 dollars because the 36 months of 300 dollar payments is discounted at 6.81 percent to obtain the present value of the lump sum amount.
5.B.2. Lump sum AIP is paid as a single payment in exchange for an agreement to serve in an assignment for a specified period of time. Lump sum installment payments are not authorized. Marines who elect the lump sum payment option must agree in writing to serve in their assignment for the full terms covered by the lump sum received. The lump sum AIP amount for a given assignment and tour length will be less than the corresponding monthly AIP option for the reason explained in paragraph 5.B.1.
5.B.3. Lump sum AIP dollar amounts listed in paragraph 6 are based upon standardized tour lengths for each assignment. The lump sum amount paid will be based upon the actual number of months pledged in the agreement. Written agreements must be for no less than 12 months. The number of months pledged in the lump sum agreement can be less than but cannot exceed the standardized tour length for the specific assignment or the Marine’s end of current contract (ECC), whichever occurs first. However, Marines serving in PMOS assignments (e.g., Career Recruiter) can agree to serve beyond the standardized tour length but cannot exceed their ECC. Marines will be switched to monthly AIP for service in the assignment that goes beyond the number of months in the AIP agreement unless the Marine elects to receive a second lump sum payment. Such payment must be based on an agreement to serve in the assignment for a minimum of 12 months.
5.C. VSI. VSI is paid monthly or in lump sum amounts to provide an additional incentive in the assignment process to encourage Marines to volunteer for SDA during the SDA volunteer period.
5.C.1. Monthly VSI. Monthly VSI is paid one-half of its dollar value on the first of the month and the other half paid on the 15th of the month. A written agreement is required to qualify for monthly VSI. The cumulative dollar value of monthly VSI payments for a given tour length is the same as its corresponding single lump sum payment option (i.e., the lump sum amount is not discounted). For example, 278 dollars paid each month for a 36-month tour is 10,000 dollars. Its corresponding single lump sum payment option is 10,000 dollars.
5.C.2. Lump Sum VSI. Lump sum VSI is paid as a single payment to volunteers in exchange for an agreement to serve in a SDA for 36 months or for a second tour SDA for 24 months. Lump sum installment payments are not authorized. Marines who elect the lump sum payment option must agree in writing to serve in the SDA for the full tour length.
6. Amounts. Marines who meet the eligibility criteria in paragraph 4 above are eligible for the following amounts of monetary incentives as described for each assignment.
6.A. Special Duty Assignments

8.E. Termination of Monetary Incentives. Commanders (O-5 or higher) are authorized to terminate SDAP and monthly or lump sum AIP and/or VSI when it is determined the Marine has failed to maintain the minimum level of qualification required for satisfactory performance, reclassified out of the MOS due to poor performance, misconduct or other reasons, or in an unauthorized absentee status. The termination must be documented on a command letter and uploaded to Marine’s OMPF.
8.F. Recoupment of Lump Sum. Marines who do not serve in the assignment for the number of months specified in the agreement shall repay the unearned, prorated portion of the lump sum AIP and/or VSI payment. Recoupment of a lump sum will not be sought if a Marine is unable to complete the agreement due to circumstances beyond the Marine’s control and not a result of the Marine’s misconduct (e.g., death, retired or separated for disability, etcetera).

9.B.1. Marines wanting to contribute all or a portion of their AIP, SDAP, and/or VSI to their TSP account must make a TSP Incentive percentage election, via their myPay account, the month prior to receiving the payment.
9.B.2. Marines should carefully choose their TSP contribution percentages of AIP, SDAP, and VSI monies because those contributions are not matched and those contributions will count towards their annual Elective Deferral Limit (i.e., 19,500 dollars in 2020). When the Elective Deferral Limit is reached for the year, Marines are unable to make contributions of basic pay for the remainder of the year and the Marine Corps matching contributions stop. However, the monthly 1 percent automatic contribution by the Marine Corps, an amount equal to 1 percent of monthly basic pay, will continue.
9.B.3. Unlike BRS participants, Legacy Retirement System participants enrolled in TSP are not eligible for 1 percent automatic agency and/or matching contributions.
9.B.4. Further details concerning TSP contribution limits can be found at https:(slash)(slash)www.tsp.gov/PlanParticipation/EligibilityAndContributions/contributionLimits.html.
9.C. Marines choosing a lump sum payment may contact their installation’s Personal Financial Manager or the Command Financial Specialist to schedule an individual session on (1) Introduction to Debt Management (2) Addressing Excessive Debt, and (3) Establishing Savings. These sessions are 45 minutes.
