d. No action is required from Sailors with pending reenlistment
requests. The Nuclear Enlisted Program Manager (N133D) is designated as the
ESRP Program Manager and will reapprove all pending reenlistment requests
that have increased award levels.
4. Eligibility. Only Sailors assigned an active supervisory nuclear naval
enlisted classification (NEC) listed in paragraph 3 are eligible to reenlist
for ESRP. ESRP requests for personnel being processed for NEC removal or
restoration will be held in abeyance pending final resolution. Overall ESRP
eligibility requirements are defined in reference (c). In addition, to
encourage career progression and provide incentive for continued superior at-
sea service, the following supplementary eligibility requirements remain in
place for each ESRP zone:
a. ESRP Zone 1. In addition to the requirements of reference (c), be
assigned an active nuclear supervisory NEC (see paragraph 3).
b. ESRP Zone 2. In addition to the requirements of reference (c), be a
frocked chief petty officer or in pay grade E-7, E-8, or E-9 on the date of
the ESRP Zone 2 reenlistment.
c. ESRP Zone 3. In addition to the requirements of reference (c);
(1) Be a frocked E-8 or in pay grade E-8 or E-9 on the date of the
ESRP Zone 3 reenlistment.
(2) Have successfully previously served as, be currently serving as,
or have accepted orders as a submarine engineering department master chief,
nuclear aircraft carrier (CVN) leading chief petty officer, or CVN reactor
department master chief.
5. Application Process. ESRP reenlistment requests will be submitted 35-120
days in advance of the member's desired reenlistment date to ensure the
approval message is released in a timely manner. Exceptions to this policy
will be approved by the ESRP program manager on an individual basis.
a. Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS) Force Management System
is programmed to process ESRP reenlistment requests and employs the same
process used to request and approve selective reenlistment bonus reenlistment
requests. Career counselors and personnel support detachments are familiar
with this program and should use it as the primary method of ESRP request
submission. The ESRP request type is 3AA for Sailors on active duty and 3BB
for broken service requests.
b. In the event OPINS is not available, the command can e-mail (scanned
copy of request), or mail the request directly to the ESRP program manager
utilizing the format found in reference (c). If operational commitments
limit the ability to submit ESRP applications via this manner, commands
should submit the ESRP request via message to the immediate superior in
charge, who can submit the OPINS request. ESRP requests sent directly to the
ESRP program manager by message or mail may result in a processing delay.
c. E-6 and below Zone 1 Sailors not already obligated beyond 14 years of
service will require an approved Career Waypoints (C-WAY) reenlistment quota.
C-WAY submission and quota approval can be pursued in parallel with the OPINS
request for ESRP.
d. A Sailor must be preapproved for an ESRP reenlistment. ESRP approval
will not currently notify the Defense Joint Military Pay System (DJMS) of the
Sailor's intent to reenlist. Until DJMS can be programmed to accept ESRP
reenlistment payments, manual processing is required. Payments should post
to the Sailor's account within 14 days following the day the ESRP program
manager receives notification of reenlistment. Initial payment will be
authorized as soon as the contract execution is reflected in the enlisted
master file (EMF). In order to ensure prompt payment, new contracts must be
posted to the EMF in a timely manner.
e. Personnel Support Detachments and commands should contact N133D vice
Defense Finance and Accounting System to resolve any payment issues.
f. A Sailor with an approved pre-certification, who does not reenlist on
the date specified in the pre-certification message, must resubmit a request
to revise the reenlistment date and ESRP award amount.
6. Recoupment. Receipt of any ESRP bonus is contingent upon the fulfillment
of the specific conditions of eligibility, service, and assignment of the
ESRP program. A Sailor who fails to fulfill these specified conditions
during the period of service agreed upon shall repay the U.S. Navy any
unearned portion of the bonus. Situations requiring repayment are provided
in reference (c).
7. Service Record Entry. A NAVPERS 1070/613 entry acknowledging recoupment
policy is required to be entered into the service members record prior to
execution of an ESRP reenlistment; examples are provided in reference (c).
8. ESRP-eligible Sailors and their command career counselors should review
reference (c), which provides further program details. Reference (c) can be
found on the nuclear enlisted community manager
9. Point of contact is N133D, at (703)604-5502/5491/5492/5493/DSN 664 or via
e-mail at nxag_n133d3(at)navy.mil or bullnuke(at)navy.mil.
