Retention Bonuses

The Selective Retention Bonus (SRB) program is a retention incentive paid to Soldiers in selected MOSs who reenlist for a minimum of 3 years.

The objective of the SRB program is to increase the number of reenlistments in critical MOSs that do not have adequate retention levels to man the career force.

The bonus will be paid in addition to any other pay and allowances to which the Soldier is entitled.
