Member accepts a commission as an officer or warrant officer in the Coast Guard Reserve.
(No recoupment of previously authorized payments will be made if more than two years
has elapsed since initial payment date.)
Member stops serving in their bonus-eligible rating (unless authorized continued bonus
entitlement by CGPC-rpm).
Member voluntarily transfers from a bonus eligible billet or unit to a non-bonus eligible
billet or unit.
NOTE: If member is transferred due to advancement, recoupment and termination action
will not be initiated unless the member has served less than one-half of their
contracted service obligation.
The formula for calculating recoupment of Reenlistment/Extension bonuses is:
Total number of whole months served
satisfactorily during the period
for which the bonus was paid.
X under the
Total number of months obligated
under the written agreement
Number of whole months served is computed by rounding to the nearest whole
month (i.e., 15 days or less is rounded to the previous month, and 16 days or more is
rounded to the next month).
Subtract the pro-rata amount from the total amount of bonus paid to date (total of
initial and subsequent payments).
Based on the calculation, HRSIC will recoup the amount of overpayment or
authorize payment of earned entitlement.
Example: Member served two years of a six-year enlistment and received total
payments of ,000 on a total bonus of ,000.
,000 Pro-Rata Amount
,000 = ,000 Amount to be Recouped
