Like the other services, the Air Force offers monetary reenlistment bonuses to individuals who agree to reenlist in certain, designated AFSCs (jobs).

The below chart shows the current reenlistment bonus multipliers authorized. The rates are effective as of November 2009.

Reenlistment bonuses are subject to change. For updated information, see your local Military Personnel Flight (MPF) or unit career advisor. Reenlistment Bonus Cap is $90,000.

Zone A - The muliplier shown in the "Zone A" column is for those who reenlist when they have between 17 months and six years of active service.

Zone B - The multiplier shown in the "Zone B" column is for those who reenlist when they have between six and 10 years of active service.

Zone C - The multiplier shown in the "Zone C" column is for those who reenlist when they have from 10 to 14 years of active service.

Zone E - The muliplier shown in the "Zone E" column is for those who reenlist when they have from 18 to 20 years of active service.

The amount awarded for an SRB is computed as follows:

The member's base pay multiplied by the indicated bonus multiplier, times number of years (or fraction of year) reenlisting for.

50 percent of the re-enlistment bonus is paid in a lump-sum at the time of re-enlistment. The remainder is paid in annual installments during the re-enlistment period. Re-enlistment bonuses are subject to Federal income tax, unless the member re-enlists in a designated combat zone. In that event, the entire bonus is tax-free. Whether or not the re-enlistment bonus is subject to state tax depends on the laws of the state that the military member has selected as his/her legal residence.
