Air Force explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) master and senior master sergeants may now be eligible for a critical skills retention bonus (CSRB). Those who have at least 20 years of service, but no more than 22 years of service, will be offered the bonus. Master sergeants will automatically get a high year tenure (HYT) waiver upon reenlisting under the retention program. Master sergeants who accept CSRB at 20 years or more will have their HYT adjusted to 25 years, the maximum allowed under the CSRB program. Bonuses could be between $30,000 and $75,000. Eligible Airmen who reenlist on or after the May 13 effective date will be eligible for the retention bonus. For more information, including eligibility criteria, visit myPers.
