  • Every member of the uniformed services has an EIGHT year service obligation. This is Federal law, and was stipulated in your contract when you entered active duty.
    If you have not completed 8 years on active duty, you must finish your MSO in the Reserves. This can be done either in a drilling (Selected Reserve or Voluntary Training Unit) capacity or a non-drilling capacity (Individual Ready Reserve).
    If you have MSO remaining when you leave active duty and do not join the drilling Naval Reserve, you are placed in the Individual Ready Reserve until the expiration of your Minimum Service Obligation.
    Officers should keep in mind that at the expiration of their MSO, they do not automatically lose their commission. This is the case even if they are not in a drilling status. Officers must resign their commission to no longer be in the Navy/Naval Reserve after their MSO expires.
  • The Ready Reserve includes the Selected Reserve (SELRES) or Drilling Reserves, and the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) or Non-Drilling reserves.
    SELRES members are assigned to specific reserve units, while IRR members are not assigned to specific units and are managed by the Naval Personnel Center (NPC) in Millington, TN.
    Both SELRES and IRR are “active” reserve categories, meaning that they are eligible to train with or without pay (based on member’s category), serve on active duty, active duty for training (ADT) or funeral honors duty, earn retirement points and be considered for advancement or promotion, when eligible.
    The VTU is primarily made up of members of the ready reserve who are too senior for paid billets, or a paid billet is currently unavailable in their rating at their rank, but they wish to continue actively participating as a drilling reservist. For example, once a senior officer has performed two tours as CO of a drilling unit, he or she can not hold another paid billet until they are promoted to the next pay grade.
  • Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) members include members not assigned to a specific drilling unit and those members assigned to a VTU. IRR members in VTUs are not paid for drilling.
    IRR members may be eligible to perform ADT, ADSW or FHD with or without pay. Normally, qualified members can perform up to 29 days paid ADT each year. IRR members are eligible to earn retirement points for performing drills, active duty training and correspondence courses. They may be considered for advancement and promotion (Officers and VTU members), and they may be recalled to active duty (Presidential Authority).
    To earn a qualifying year toward retirement, members must earn at least 50 total points per year. Members will receive 15 gratuitous points each year. Additional points may be earned by drill, active duty periods and correspondence courses.
  • Members of the IRR must meet minimum participation requirements. Officers must earn 27 points per anniversary year. Enlisted members do not have a minimum point requirement, but must maintain their uniforms.
    All members must perform an annual muster when ordered to do so. All members are required by law to respond to all correspondence and update their recall information and status. All members are subject to the UCMJ.
  • Members of the IRR are required to provide updated information on mailing address, phone number, marital status, number of dependents, civilian employer/occupation, changes in education, skills or licenses, changes in physical condition (disabilities, pregnancy, etc.) and any changes that affect their ability to be recalled to active duty (single parent, disability, jail sentence, etc.).
    Contact the Naval Personnel Center (NPC) to make these annual updates. The web address will be shown on the next to last slide.
  • Active Duty for Training (ADT) is designed to provide active duty training to IRR members to maintain their readiness and refresh their job skills. Both paid and unpaid ADT will earn retirement point credit.
  • ADT eligibility depends on reserve category and rating. For more information, see the NPC website or call the toll free number.
  • IRR members may be eligible for re-enlistment or extension in the Naval Reserve, including some Bonus re-enlistment programs (see your recruiter).
    IRR members may earn retirement points, apply for VGLI coverage, receive any reserve medals awarded, ID cards for access to the Exchanges and MWR for both themselves and dependents, and they may earn commissary privileges.
