  1. 1. Command Career Counselors Quick Guide to Success for Navy Reserve Affiliation/Enlistment<br />As we continue to shape the force to meet mission requirements, efforts to fully integrate the Navy Reserve requires a level of experience held only by active duty Sailors. Reserve affiliation/enlistment makes us a stronger Navy by capitalizing on skills and experience that we have helped develop and provides the transitioning Sailor with additional monthly income, bonuses in some ratings, professional training, and continued medical and dental benefits.<br /> Navy Reserve Force. Click here to view the Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Homeport Website for program information and benefits. If you are a new to the Navy Reserve, click on the subsections on the left of the page to learn about the Navy Reserve, Reserve Sailors, Reserve Families, view PODcast’s, and read the current Reserve magazine The Navy Reservists (TNR). Click the sign in button at the top of the page for a Common Access Card (CAC) login to the private side of the web page. This side of the web page contains the links to Command Information, Site Maps, Help Desk Contact, Information Boards, Quick Links, reserve Force Announcements, and Applications. This side provides information on Navy Reserve Affiliation/Enlistment Bonuses, Reserve Pay Scale, Selected Reserve Montgomery GI Bill and GI Bill Kicker, Reserve Retirement, Training Opportunities, Medical and Dental Benefits and SGLI, Navy Exchange, Commissary, MWR privileges, Space ‘A” Travel, Tax breaks and much more. <br />Click the Navy Recruiting District (NRD) locator for a list of NRD.

Prior active service Sailors who voluntarily participate will normally perform four Inactive Duty Training (IDT) periods per month (regular/flexible), minimum of four hours each (called drills) and 12-17 days of Annual Training (AT) per fiscal year. Reserve pay is based on a per drill pay scale equivalent to one day basic pay for each drill performed. Two days (4 drills) equals four days basic pay. Additionally, Selected Reservists (SELRES) may be entitled to special pays including Aviation Career Incentive Pay/Career Enlisted Flight Incentive Pay, and Funeral Honor Detail Allowance. Annual Training may entitle SELRES to basic pay, Foreign Language Proficiency Bonus, additional allowances and Travel Pay. <br />Navy Reserve Retirement. To qualify upon application for nonregular-retired pay at age 60, a member must have completed 20 years of qualifying service unless otherwise provided by law. The last 6 years of such qualifying service must be in a Reserve component for members who have earned 20 or more years of qualifying service on or before 24 April 2005. There is no requirement that the last 6 years be continuous service. For members who complete 20 years of qualifying service on or after 25 April 2005, the last 6 years of qualifying service in a Reserve component is not a requirement to qualify for non-regular retired pay.<br />***Satisfactory Service*** A Naval Reservist must earn a minimum of 50 retirement points in an anniversary year to be credited with a year of satisfactory service for retirement purposes. The requirement for a qualifying year for retirement purposes should not be confused with satisfactory drill participation. Members must perform a minimum of 12 to 14 days Annual Training (AT) each fiscal year when AT is required. <br />Year Policy Execution Guidance Notice. Active Duty/AT. One point for each day of active duty or AT (including travel time).<br />Drills. One point for each authorized drill attended (pay or non-pay status). A maximum of four retirement points may be credited for each drill weekend<br />(3)Correspondence Courses. Varying point credited for completion of approved correspondence courses. Refer to the Catalog of Courses listed on The Non-Resident Training Courses (NRTC) website. For those of you who are seasoned veterans of the old NRTC website, you will find all your Active Courses, Course Registration, Completion Letter, Profile and other student services under the "Student Service" menu listed on the site. For those who are new to the system, go to the "Course Registration" page. Here you will be able to register for new courses. Your assignments will be listed under the "Active Courses" menu option.  For any additional help, please contact the NRTC help desk on the page. <br />(4)Navy Knowledge Online (NKO) eLearning Courses. This link, CAC enabled, is to a printable list of eLearning courses offering "RECOMMENDED" reserve points. NOTE: Commander Navy Reserve Forces (CNRF) N7 determines the number of reserve points awarded for completion of a course taken on Navy eLearning. This listing should only be used as a guide and is subject to change by direction of CNFR N7. Navy eLearning has no control over how many, if any, reserve points are eventually awarded for the completion of a course. All questions concerning the award of reserve points should be directed to CNFR N7. <br />(5)Membership Points. Fifteen points credited for each complete year of active status membership in a Reserve component.<br />Note: No more than 130 points per anniversary year can be credited from drills, correspondence courses and membership.<br />Example. An E-5 with four years of active duty service receives 1,460 points. If the member drills for 16 years and averages 90 points per anniversary year to reach 20 years of qualifying service, that member will receive an additional 2080 points for an accumulative total of 3540 points. <br />The formula for computing retirement pay granted under 10 USC 12731 and 1401 is:<br />P/360 x .025 x B = $ /monthly<br />P denotes total number of retirement points and B denotes applicable Basic Pay in Grade in which retired. <br />To utilize the Pay and Compensation calculator and estimate your reserve retirement pay click here.
