No RIF for medical corps, medical service corps officers in Oct.

Medical corps and medical service corps officers who planned to meet the reduction in force board in October no longer have to.

The Air Force Personnel Center announced Tuesday it has canceled the RIF board for those officers after receiving enough voluntary separation and retirement applications.

The Air Force has said it hopes to use voluntary separations and retirements to minimize the number of airmen who must be retired or separated involuntarily.

The Management Reduction in Force Board, scheduled to convene Oct. 1, will still evaluate line of the Air Force and LAF-judge advocate officers for retention, according to the online announcement.

“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,” it said.

The RIF board will also evaluate LAF-judge advocate officers in the 2004, 2005 and 2006 captain year groups, according to the announcement. “LAF-JA captain year groups are based on the year an officer was promoted to captain in the JA 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.”

AFPC directed eligible airmen to review the matrices on the myPers website to see whether they are eligible.

The following officers will not meet the board:

■ Those 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.

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

■ Officers on a promotion list as of the board convening date and those with less than one year time in grade at the time the board convenes.
