The U.S. Navy has announced revisions to Temporary Early Retirement Authority (TERA) application procedures. Applications for TERA must be submitted with command endorsement by the applicant's Command Career Counselor (CCC) who must enter program code "E" to identify the application as a TERA request. Applications must be submitted to Navy Personnel Command (NPC) no later than June 15, 2012. Applicants may check the status of their application through BUPERS Online at www.bol.navy.mil. Also, TERA retirees are not required to register for the Public and Community Service (PACS) program (PACS). For more information, visit NPC's transition assistance webpage, or contact the NPC customer service center at CSCmailbox@navy.mil or 1-866-U-ASK-NPC.
