A TIME-IN-GRADE (TIG) WAIVER FOR SAILORS WHO ARE RETIREMENT ELIGIBLE IN 
PAY GRADES E7 THROUGH E9 FROM TWO YEARS TO ONE YEAR IS AUTHORIZED.  
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, RETIREMENT ELIGIBLE CHIEF, SENIOR CHIEF, AND 
MASTER CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS WITH NOT LESS THAN ONE YEAR TIG MAY REQUEST 
A TIG WAIVER AND VOLUNTARY RETIREMENT IN GRADE.  THIS AUTHORITY APPLIES 
TO ALL RETIREMENT ELIGIBLE USN, FULL TIME SUPPORT (FTS) AND SELECTED 
RESERVE (SELRES) PERSONNEL AND DOES NOT AFFECT THE PAY COMPUTATION OF 
THE RETIRING SAILOR.

    B.  WHO HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED TO FILL A GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM

3.  USN AND FTS SAILORS WILL CONTINUE TO REQUEST RETIREMENT THROUGH 
COMNAVPERSCOM (PERS-822).  SELRES ENLISTED SAILORS WILL CONTINUE TO

RECOMMENDATIONS, ESPECIALLY FOR SAILORS WHO POSSESS A CRITICAL NAVY 
ENLISTED CLASSIFICATION (NEC) AS LISTED IN THE MOST RECENT CAREER

APPROVAL AUTHORITY FOR USN AND FTS PERSONNEL.  COMNAVPERSCOM (PERS-913) 
IS THE FINAL WAIVER APPROVAL AUTHORITY FOR SELECTED RESERVE PERSONNEL. 
4.  ADDITIONALLY, THOSE E7-E9 RETIREMENT ELIGIBLE SAILORS WHOSE 
EAOS/SEAOS/HYT DATE DOES NOT SUPPORT A FOLLOW-ON ASSIGNMENT (I.E., 12 
MONTHS RETAINABILITY FOR SEA DUTY; 24 MONTHS FOR SHORE DUTY;
36 MONTHS FOR SPECIAL PROGRAMS) ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO REQUEST 
RETIREMENT/TRANSFER TO THE FLEET RESERVE AT THEIR CURRENT PROJECTED
