Retirement/Fleet Reserve Submission Process
Effective 1 January 2018, members with commands that have access to Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) Web were directed to submit requests through the Retirements and Separations (RnS) self-service function. This provides transparency for service members on the status of their requests, an integrated waiver request process (when needed), and electronic notification of the final disposition of requests for both members and the command. Afloat commands without access are permitted to submit requests via the Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS) or the NSIPS Career Information Management System (CIMS) until upgraded to NSIPS Web-Afloat capability.
Submit requests within the following timelines:
E6 and below: 6–18 months prior to requested Fleet Reserve date
E7 and above: 6-24 months prior to requested Fleet Reserve date
Retirement requests should be submitted 24 months prior to requested Retirement date
Request will be electronically routed to applicable Detailer and Enlisted Community Manager (ECM) for review/disposition advisement. Administrative requirements by PERS-836 include eligibility verification, Statement of Service (composition), and issuance of final approval/disapproval of request.
To cancel or modify a previously approved request processed in NSIPS RnS, the member will access the request and select either "modify" or "cancel" and reroute accordingly. To cancel or modify a previously approved request processed through OPINS or NSIPS CIMS, CCCs should email an approved/signed Personnel Action Request (1306/7) to Enlisted_Active_Duty_Retirements@navy.mil for processing.
Calculators to estimate retired pay are provided by the Defense Finance Accounting Service (DFAS) and are available here.
