1. NAVADMIN 142/22 HAS CANCELLED ALL VOLUNTARY SEPARATIONS with the following exceptions:

    ·       Applications to transfer to United States Space Force (USSF)
    ·       Pursuit of a commission in the Navy
    ·       Applications to transfer to other Uniformed Service at SEAOS

2. CO's still retain 90-day early out authority under the policies outlined in MILPERSMAN 1910-108 and MILPERSMAN 1910-102.
Note: COs are not the approval authority for conditional releases (except for 90-day authority mentioned above). Only PERS-832 may approve conditional releases. In addition, Service members must not apply for a commission or inter-Service transfer in another branch of Service without the aforementioned approval by PERS-832.

 Service members interested in obtaining a Navy commission, transferring into USSF, or transferring to another Uniformed Service (at their SEAOS) must:

1. Request a conditional release to apply to a specific commissioning program/specific branch of service. Submit a NAVPERS 1306/7 Electronic Personnel Action Request to their CO. Upon CO's positive endorsement, forward to PERS-832 via MNCC (
2. If approved, member's command will receive a message from PERS-832 advising member that they may apply to the requested program/service.
3. Upon official notification of selection into the program/service, member must request separation on a specific date, via their CO, from PERS-832, using NAVPERS 1306/7. The request must include a copy of the acceptance or appointment letter and reporting requirement/official orders from the program to justify the requested discharge date. Requests should again be submitted to PERS-832 via MNCC (
4. If the separation request is approved, PERS-832 will release a message to the member's command authorizing the separation. The message will contain the approved discharge date and specific information for the preparation of the member's DD-214.

Note: Member's interested in transferring/commissioning into another branch (except USSF) prior to their SEAOS must also include an Exception to Policy request from their CO with their initial Conditional Release request. This ETP request will require CNP approval and is not normally approved.


IAW MILPERSMAN 1616-040, PERS-832 only accepts reports of NJP for E-6 through E-9. Reports of NJP for E-5 and below must be sent directly to PERS-313, per MILPERSMAN 1616-050. For more information, please visit the PERS-313 webpage at

Please do not include investigations, police reports, NCIS documents, etc. when sending Reports of NJP.

Sailors being processed for ADSEP are NOT eligible for transfer to the Fleet Reserve (MPM 1830-040), and they cannot be involuntarily retained beyond their SEAOS solely for ADSEP processing (MPM 1910-208). Members can request a voluntary extension from PERS-832. Voluntary extensions are typically done in 6 month increments.

Note: If a Sailor's SEAOS expires while awaiting ADSEP adjudication, they should be separated for Completion of Required Service. They would not receive retirement benefits.



If a member is enrolled in the DES/undergoing a PEB while being processed for ADSEP, CNPC (at a minimum) is the separation authority (MPM 1910-704).

If a member receives orders to be medically discharged/transfer to the TDRL/PDRL and is simultaneously being processed for ADSEP for MISCONDUCT:
-contact PERS-954 to have the separation/retirement date held in abeyance pending the adjudication of the ADSEP. Abeyances are typically done 6 months at a time.

If a member receives orders to be medically discharged/transfer to the TDRL/PDRL and is simultaneously being processed for ADSEP for ANYTHING OTHER THAN MISCONDUCT:
-the medical separation/retirement should be executed as directed. contact to ensure proper closeout of the ADSEP case.

The only form that will be accepted for ADSEP processing is NAVPERS 1910-31 Rev08-19.
This memo shall be used when a member who is undergoing ADSEP processing has been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or any other mental health diagnosis in order to determine whether the condition did/did not contribute to the member's misconduct.
