JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — Line of the Air Force officers in four Air Force specialty codes by year group are no longer scheduled to meet the fiscal year 2015 Force Management Reduction in Force board slated for Oct. 1.

Updated matrices have been posted to the myPers website. AFSCs by year group that will not meet the board include 2002 21R logistics readiness, 65F financial management, 2007 61B behavioral science/human factors scientist, and 61D physicist/nuclear engineer.

The board will still evaluate LAF and LAF-judge advocate officers for continued retention.
Because of previously approved retirements and separations and ongoing voluntary program opportunities, the Air Force has met the overall end strength goal in the fields and year groups removed from the eligibility matrix.

Eligible Year Groups/Competitive Categories

Airmen eligible to meet the board include LAF captains in year groups 2006 through 2008 and LAF majors in year groups 2001 through 2003 (computed by total active federal commissioned service date) in specific AFSCs, unless specifically excluded. AFSCs and year groups vary depending on category, so eligible Airmen should review the matrices on the myPers website to determine if they are eligible.

The board will also consider LAF-JA officers in the 2004 through 2006 captain year groups. LAF-JA captain year groups are based on the year an officer was promoted to captain in the JAG Corps or, if a prior-service officer, the captain year group an officer was placed into by the Air Force JA based upon service calculations.

Eligibility Exclusions

Some officers will not meet the RIF board, including the following:

• Officers with an approved date of separation on or before April 30, 2015, or who have an approved Temporary Early Retirement Authority retirement on or before May 1, 2015.

• Officers who because of a deployment have an approved voluntary separation pay or TERA separation date after April 30, 2015.

• Officers on a promotion list as of the board convening date.

• Officers with less than one year time-in-grade as of the board convening date.
