SELECTIVE REENLISTMENT BONUS (SRB) PROGRAM
Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) is the Navy’s primary monetary force shaping tool to achieve enlisted retention requirements in specific categories such as ratings, Navy enlisted classifications (NEC). SRB award levels are subject to change in response to the needs of the Navy with regard to managing rating/NEC retention goals.
Please refer to OPNAVINST 1160.8B and the current SRB eligibility chart to determine SRB eligibility and request submission procedures. In an effort to be more agile to community retention needs, NAVADMIN updates will be less frequent than in the past. The SRB program and eligibility will be updated in accordance with real-time retention observations and Fleet needs. The Fleet can continue to expect more rapid updates to the eligibility chart as we respond in real-time to better manage community health.
SRB Instruction: OPNAVINST 1160.8B (Apr 2019)
SRB NAVADMIN: NAVADMIN 108/20
Latest SRB award levels are located here.
SRB Shutdowns and Reductions
SRB is a reenlistment incentive used to maintain desired manning in specific ratings and NECs. SRB award levels are subject to change in response to the needs of the Navy in managing community manning. SRB skill closures may be managed by NAVADMIN or promulgated by an update to the SRB eligibility chart. You can view the status of all SRB skill closures promulgated by memo by viewing the SRB shutdown addendum linked below, then scrolling to the ‘Shutdown and Reductions’ section.

Pay for Performance (PFP)
The Pay for Performance program is open to all eligible rates!
The pay for performance (PFP) program continues as part of the Sailor 2025 talent management process. This initiative aims to recognize the top performing Sailors across all communities that are eligible for a SRB with an added incentive to reenlist with an additional 0.5 multiple (equates to roughly $5K) “kicker” tacked onto their multiple.
If you desire to request cancellation of your debt under section 6161, Title 10. U.S. Code, please complete DD Form 2789, Waiver/Remission of Indebtedness Application, and submit a formal request (justification) to the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) via Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV) N130.
For active duty service members:
The DD Form 2789 must be endorsed by your commanding officer (Blocks 20 through 22b) and a second endorsement (Section II) completed by your servicing Personnel Support Detachment (PSD). The PSD then is to forward the request to this office OPNAV N130. You may request that your Personnel Support Detachment suspend the indebtedness action pending final determination; however, the suspension is at the discretion of the PSD. For privacy purposes, when emailing your remission request package attachment ensure you use your military email address. If your remission request is due to financial hardship, provide documentation of counseling by your Command Financial Specialist and any additional documentation you have to support financial hardship. You will need to provide all supporting documents (Command Financial Counseling, Debt notification letter, NEC removal documentation etc.) to justify your reasoning for submitting your request.

You will need to provide all supporting documents (Command Financial Counseling, Debt notification letter, NEC removal documentation, DD 214 with Separation Program Designator Code etc.) to justify your reasoning for submitting your request. This includes a copy of the indebtedness letter. While the remission request is pending a determination, you are still required to make payments with DFAS Indianapolis out of service debts. It is highly encouraged that you coordinate a repayment plan with DFAS Indianapolis out of service debts while the case is pending. Once all documentation is gathered to support your request please submit the remission request form, your justification, and calculations of the debt to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Assignment Incentive Pay (AIP)
AIP Program allows Sailors to set their price, through a "bid" system located in CMS/ID, for an assignment to certain hard to fill billets/locations. The qualified Sailor submitting the lowest bid will receive the assignment. The Navy establishes a maximum payment for each location and pay grade to control the bid.

Special Duty Assignment Pay (SDAP)
SDAP is a monthly pay used to help obtain high quality personnel for designated Special Duty Assignments (SDAs) and sustain adequate manning levels. SDAs involve demanding duties requiring extraordinary effort for satisfactory performance or an unusual degree of responsibility in the accomplishment of assigned duties.
Please see the SDAP instruction OPNAVINST 1160.6C and the SDAP website (scroll down past SRB and STAR sections). The most current Eligibility Chart is posted to the SDAP website (see the navigation menu at the top left of this page).

- Health Professions Officer (HPO)
SDIP-Extension (SDIP-E): Incentivizes Sailors to voluntarily extend their sea duty assignments on board their current sea duty command when assigned to ships, submarines, or aviation squadrons for rotational purposes by a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 48 months.
SDIP-Back-To-Back (SDIP-B): Incentivizes Sailors to voluntarily extend their sea duty when assigned to a Type 2/4 command for rotational purposes upon transfer to ships, submarines, or aviation squadrons by a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 48 months, based upon DOD Area or minimum activity tour length. For the purposes of SDIP-B, assignment to a Pre-Commissioning (PRECOM) Unit (PCU) prior to the delivery/commissioning date does not satisfy the requirement of being designated as a ship and therefore would not qualify a Sailor for SDIP-B.
SDIP-Curtailment (SDIP-C): Aims at incentivizing Sailors to voluntarily curtail their shore duty assignments a minimum of six months prior to their original PRD, and return to sea duty assignments on a ship, submarine, or at an aviation squadron for a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 48 months, based upon DOD Area or minimum activity tour length.
