When the Air Force implements a force reduction initiative (RIF), there are programs in place to minimize the impact on employees and to assist those who are affected. To help Airmen understand the process, RIF-related topics are explained on the Air Force Personnel Services (AFPERS) website. In addition, employees can find out specific their RIF service computation date, veterans preference and other pertinent information by selecting the My Biz link on AFPERS and clicking on the My Information folder under the Personal tab to view their information. Civilians can also seek guidance from base-level civilian personnel advisers. For more information about reduction in force actions and other personnel issues, visit the Air Force Personnel Services website.
