RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces updates to the High Year Tenure
(HYT) policy by amending HYT length of service (LOS) gates for master chief
petty officers currently serving as rated command master chiefs or NEC
qualified command master chiefs in the case of Full Time Support (FTS) and
Selected Reserve (SELRES) master chief petty officers. Revisions to
references (a) and (b) are forthcoming and will be published at a later date.
All other HYT policy contained in reference (b) remains in effect.
2. The HYT policy of the Navy establishes LOS gates by paygrade.
The Navys continuing efforts to improve retention of talented and experienced
Sailors includes retention of our best senior enlisted leaders during the
height of their knowledge, education, and value to our organization. This
NAVADMIN will also grant the additional time needed to gain experience to
prepare them, as they progress in their careers, to serve Flag or General
Officers (FO/GO), Commanding Officers, and Sailors.

for rated Active Duty Fleet (FLTCM), Force (FORCM) and Command (CMDCM) master
chiefs and NEC qualified FTS and SELRES master chiefs. Effective 1 January
2019, HYT LOS gates are as
Rating HYT (current) HYT (new)
All MCPO ratings except 30 30

CMDCM (1/2-star FO/GO) 32 34

4. Eligibility guidelines. For those personnel planning to transition to
the Fleet Reserve or retire under current HYT LOS, and who would be subject
to the new HYT LOS gates effective
1 January 2019, the following guidelines are provided:
a. AC and FTS members who currently have approved Fleet Reserve or
retirement dates on or after 1 January 2019 and before their new HYT LOS must
decide no later than 31 October 2018 if an opportunity for placement into a
new assignment exists, either through the Command Senior Enlisted Leader
(CSELMO) Director (for FO/GO opportunities) or through the Command Senior
Enlisted Leader (CSEL) Detailer.
(1) If an opportunity for placement into a new assignment is not
possible, the member will not remain on active duty and will execute their
Fleet Reserve or Retirement orders as originally planned.
(2) If an opportunity for placement into a new assignment is
possible, and in line with paragraph 4a above and reference (c), members with
an approved Fleet Reserve or retirement date who desire to remain on active
duty will submit a cancellation request to Commander, Navy Personnel Command
(COMNAVPERSCOM) Enlisted Retirements Office (PERS-836) at the following e-
email@example.com. Once received, approval of
Fleet Reserve or retirement cancellation requests serves as authority to
cancel previously issued retirement orders, which are issued by the local
supporting personnel office, and serves as authority for members to obligate
additional service to reach the new HYT date, as directed on the new set of
issued orders. PERS-836 will forward all approved cancellation requests to
COMNAVPERSCOM, Enlisted Assignment Division (PERS-40).

Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command (CNRFC) upon approval.
