  1. I am APZ, but had a retirement in the system as well, but I’m assuming a non-select. Should I have heard something from my CC either way? Non-select paperwork to sign? I’ve been on terminal leave since March and my retirement date is 1 Aug.
  2. To be honest, I couldn’t tell you. I submitted for personal hardship with a lengthy explanation of the hardship, and it was denied. I wrote one line about C-17s being overmanned and it’d help the AF balance manning and it was approved
  3. Got a weird one. I applied for a ADSC waiver (personal hardship) for retirement. The request was denied, however, due to manning (11M), the request was changed to “best interest of the AF” and the waiver was approved for 9 months off ADSC. My question, if it’s Best interest of the AF, does that still qualify me to keep the final bonus payment? TIA
  4. You are correct, with a small caveat. I just spoke with the office. Her response: “If you are twice passed over, and have already received your annual payment, there will be no recoupment of the unearned portion IF you separate on the MSD established by the board. Her understanding is if I elect to retire 1ish month after the board results, I would require a SAF waiver
  5. For clarification, if you’re twice passed over, do you get to get payments that were already distributed? thanks!
  6. Any chance you have a good contact number/email?
  7. No pawnman, you’re not missing anything. I appreciate the input/questioning. I want to make sure I’m not missing anything. I was already in the retirement process and with a major airline when COVID hit. If I decline promotion (before the board), I believe I have to repay unearned portion of bonus. If not selected, I would keep the final payment as it would be “involuntary” retirement (not certain about this logic), but I can be out 1 Aug 22’ish. If promoted, or decline promotion AFTER the board: 1). My ADSC would still be 1 May 2023, 2). I’d never pin on because I’d already be retired. I’m a bottom feeder with no PME, and happily worked at the squadron level my whole career
  8. Question for the masses. I have my 2nd look in March. From previous boards I have about 1.7% chance of being promoted. I know there are differing opinions on writing letters to the board or not. However, I have no intentions of staying in. I have 22+ years AD (prior E), and a job already lined up. 1). If I was non-selected would I keep the final payment of my bonus, because it pays out prior to board results? Obviously if I write a DNP, that would be considered voluntary, thus would have to repay 2). If I allow the board to play out, magically get promoted, but decline promotion,would I be forced out? This para in the AFI makes me think if I decline promotion AFTER the board results, I would not be forced out NLT 1st day of 7th month, and my ADSCs would still be intact. “4.1.3. Officers who decline a promotion remain on the promotion list for which they were selected”. TIA
  9. %of mild condition cases hasn’t budged, even before the vax was available.
  10. I’m curious about the new 5 year look as well. From what I’ve seen, it’s not official yet. From a message I sent to AFPC. For my sake, I hope it’s still 2 look board
  11. Good day all, Hope the experts on here can chime in. AFI 36-2501 has me all spun around. I know its a long post, but thanks in advance for those that take the time to read! My updated info: 1) ADSC 1: 30 Apr 2023 (Bonus) 2) ADSC 2: 31 Jul 2022 (PCS) 3) TAFMS: May 2000 (21+ years) I meet my 2nd look for O-5 in March 2022 (LAF-A). Following standard timeline, I should expect the results roughly 1 Jul 2022. Im looking at multiple options and cant get any answers from MPF, and trying to decide if I should write a letter to the board to not consider. If for some miracle I was promoted, I wouldn’t pin on til after im on terminal or already retired. I am also looking into applying for a best interest of the Air Force waiver for the ADSC’s to retire 1 Apr 2022, (prior to final bonus payout) Questions: 1. Would I even be offered continuation as I am retirement eligible? Everywhere that I read “critical skills”, seems to attach the meaning to a medical career field., and I cant find a list of “critical skills” more recent than FY11 in myPers. Which none mentioned any 11x career fields. 2. Is involuntary separation pay even offered, if you are retirement eligible? 3. If the board meets and I am in fact passed over a 2nd time, would I be “involuntarily” retired with ISP? Assuming continuation isn’t offered because im over 20 TAFMS? 7.9. Who is Eligible for Continuation. Based on the needs of the Air Force, SECAF determines eligibility criteria for continuation. 7.9.1. Generally, subject to SECAF approval, fully qualified captains and majors identified for separation because of twice failing promotion to the next higher grade are eligible, unless the officer: Can retire, or is in the retirement sanctuary, as a commissioned officer by the mandatory date of separation for the associated promotion board. EXCEPTION: Officers possessing a critical skill may be offered continuation beyond their mandatory retirement date. Individuals not selected, or those who decline the continuation offer, will revert to their previous sanctuary or retirement status. 7.11.2. Continue majors until the last day of the month in which he or she is eligible to retire as an officer (normally upon completion of 20 years of total active military service). Majors who possess critical skills may not be continued any longer than the last day of the month in which they complete 24 years of active commissioned service. EXCEPTION: Initially continue MC/DC majors for three years. Further continue MC/DC officers for 3-year periods until they are within 6 years of retirement. When MC/DC officers are within 6 years of retirement, continue them until the last day of the month in which they can retire as an officer. 7.11.3. Normally, the continuation period begins on the 1st day of the 7th month from the approval of the board results. For officers being further continued, the continuation period begins on the first day following the completion of their initial continuation period. For officers who are in the retirement sanctuary or retirement eligible, the continuation period normally begins on the first day following the 20-year DOS. 7.11.4. Twice-deferred officers who are offered selective continuation to normal (20 year) retirement and turn it down are not authorized to receive involuntary separation pay. 7.15. Continuation to Retirement Eligibility. For retirement purposes, continuation is to 20 years TAFMS
  12. Mind if I asked what career field your friend was in? I applied earlier this year and was denied for lack of justification. Thinking of trying this option again. Retirement eligible, and would be looking to pay back the last year of the contract.
  13. Just saw on MyPers that LAF O-5 board is scheduled for 1Mar22. Anyone have an idea of when they make the determination if the board will offer continuation or not?
  14. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ i like looking at this site. I don’t claim to research any of the numbers in depth, however the cases/deaths match, so I assume the recoveries do as well. The recoveries, the number you never see plastered all over the media. Also take a look at the closed cases as well as open cases. Of the 15.2 million active cases, 99.4% are mild and .6 severe, globally. Now I was following this site before the vaccines were released and in Jan. Mild cases were 99.6%
  15. Will they release before the board if it will be the 5-year look or 2-year and if continuation would be offered or not? If so, when would they release that info? 150 days prior, etc? Also, is the next LAF O-5 board expected to be same time frame as FY21 board? TIA
  16. Is there a typical timeframe before the O-5 promotion board next year that they would determine if the 5-year window will be implemented? Or how long before the board they determine if they will offer continuation? TIA
  17. I’m an 11M. I applied for a ADSC waiver to retire (prior-E)-Denied. Non-select for O-5, tasked with 6-month COVID deployment handing out vaccination information sheets.
  18. From my last discussion with AFPC they still have the twice passed over rule. It doesn’t make sense to me which is why I’m trying to find out from someone that’s on their 2nd look this board
  19. Just got the call-No-go for me 😂. Now 1 more non-select 🤞 here’s to hoping they don’t change the twice passed over rule next board. Funny thing is they denied my ADSC waiver to retire. Oh well. Best of luck to everyone out there
  20. I’m in a similar boat (no progression). Didn’t chase a “future” in the AF. Did what I loved, and completely happy with my results. Being prior-E I knew early my promotion opportunities would be capped unless I wanted to give more than 20. During my airline interviews, I was never asked about any of my office jobs. I did have plenty of flying stories though.
  21. Good deal. I believe I have a good understanding. My only ADSCs are PCS (Jul 2022), and Bonus (Apr 2023). Assuming it was this board, If I declined continuation, I would have to retire NLT 1 Jan 2022. If I accepted continuation to say 24 years (May 2024), then the 2 ADSCs would remain?
  22. Wait one minute. That’s only if you don’t have any existing ADSCs correct. I have a bonus ADSC that takes me to 2023.
  23. Thanks 14N. I’m prior-E and over 20 years. I never played the game and ready to accept my fate
  24. The answer ID 50695 (board results) appears to indicate they are still using twice passed over for continuation. When do you get official word if it’s offered? This is my first board, but comparison of the guys that were unfortunately not selected, I don’t stand a chance. TIA
