Air Force Personnel Center News Service (Sept. 14, 2006): Selective Early Retirement Board to convene Jan. 8, 2007.

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- In an effort to shape the force to support core and emerging missions, Air Force officials will convene a Selective Early Retirement Board Jan. 8 to balance the excess of officers in the colonel and lieutenant colonel ranks.

The SERB will evaluate the line of Air Force and chaplain colonels and lieutenant colonels who meet the following criteria: colonels with four years' time in grade and lieutenant colonels who have been non-selected for promotion to colonel at least twice will be considered by the board for early retirement. Judge advocates will not meet the board.

The 2007A SERB is scheduled to convene at the Air Force Personnel Center. Officers selected by the SERB for early retirement must apply for a voluntary retirement date of no later than Sept. 1, 2007.

Senior raters will write retention recommendation forms, or RRFs, on their eligible officers to provide retain or retire recommendations. The officer's senior rater is determined based on the unit the officer is assigned to by Sept. 15. SERB-eligible officers should receive a copy of the RRF no later than 30 days before the board. They are responsible to ensure the accuracy of the RRF, performance reports, decorations, and the data on their preselection brief prior to the board date.

To preclude SERB consideration, SERB-eligible officers must submit a retirement application and have it approved by Jan. 1. Officers should submit their applications by Dec. 15 to ensure approval by the deadline. The requested retirement date must be on or before Sept. 1, 2007.

Officers with an approved voluntary retirement, those already selected for promotion or scheduled for mandatory retirement in fiscal 2007 or 2008 will not meet the board.

By law, the Air Force may select up to 30 percent of the eligible officers in each grade and competitive category for early retirement. The SERB will closely mirror the central selection board process for promotions and will consider the member's decorations, RRF, training and performance reports, and officer selection brief.
