AF announces 23 AFSCs on reenlistment bonus list

Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas (AFNS) -- Enlisted Airmen in 23 Air Force specialty codes may be eligible to receive a selective reenlistment bonus (SRB) effective March 12, Air Force officials announced March 12.

The Air Force is moving forward with a higher end-strength, so AFSCs eligible for the SRB program will increase to address retention of experienced Airmen in some key mission areas such as maintenance, signals intelligence and mental health.

"All of these career fields are challenged to retain experienced mid-level Airmen," said Col. Arch Bruns, the director of AFPC personnel services. "The (fiscal year 2015) SRB program will offer bonus incentives to Airmen in critical and emerging career fields with high operations demands and low manning that still require attention, such as battlefield Airmen, cyberspace specialties and specific maintenance career fields. These incentives will also help the Air Force retain key maintenance experience while we work F-35 maintenance manning options."

The identified career fields have been at or below required sustainment levels for some time, so they were exempt from all fiscal 2014 voluntary and most involuntary force management programs (except the Quality Force Review Board).

"SRBs are judiciously and effectively targeted to provide the most return-on-investment in both dollars and capability," the colonel said. "This allows the Air Force to retain Airmen who are critical to current and emerging mission requirements."

The Air Force will continue to offer SRBs to the 10 critical career fields from the fiscal 2014 program and has added an additional 13 AFSCs to the fiscal 2015 program.

As follows is the complete FY15 SRB list; 13 added AFSCs asterisked:
