minimum contract time remaining on Sailors soft expiration of active
obligated service from 12 to 36 months for those who wish to separate from
Active Duty in lieu of forced conversion. As outlined in reference (b),
requests must contain a statement of understanding that any unearned bonuses
will be recouped and separation pay will not be authorized. Separations
must occur no later than 30 September 2021.

Distribution Assignment Branch (PERS-40), are authorized to approve such
requests barring any negative impacts to sea duty. Each request will be
reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Any request that would negatively impact
sea duty manning will be disapproved.
4. Navy remains committed to ensuring Fleet readiness by providing
well-trained Sailors in the right paygrade with the right skills and
experience at the right time.
