    Per ALCOAST 184/18, anyone enlisting in the Reserve for a six year contract, will receive a $2,000 bonus REGARDLESS OF RATING OR UNIT.  Those choosing the BM or ME rating AND going to a PSU will receive $5,000.

    Question about this...

    A friend of mine is going to enlist in the USCGR anyway, but I want to make sure he gets everything due to him. He'll likely go in as an ME at a PSU, which would make him eligible for that $5k bonus. His plan is to apply for SRDC after 2-3 years enlisted and pursue his commission. So a few things: 1) Would taking the bonus restrict him from applying for SRDC prior to serving his 6 years? 2) If he received the bonus and applied/got accepted into SRDC, would he then owe it back?

    I called the POC from the message and they deferred to the local recruiting office. The local recruiting office didn't know what SRDC was, so I don't have a tremendous amount of confidence in their answer. Thanks.

    So I spoke with the officer recruiter at the San Francisco RO. He told me that the bonus would indeed be recouped, if the initial 6 year contract was not completed, even if that was dut to acceptance into the SRDC program

    So i wanted to look this up, because i didn't think going officer would cause recoupment, but it would make sense since change-of-rating applies.

    1.A.4. Eligibility Criteria
    To qualify for the EB Program, members must:
    a. Meet standard enlistment qualification criteria;
    b. Qualify for and agree to affiliate with a selected rating or designated critical skill and
    agree to serve an initial active duty enlistment for a minimum of 4 years;
    c. Not participate in the Coast Guard College Fund. Once a member chooses to
    participate in the EB, he or she cannot change over to the College Fund.
    1.A.5. Loss of Eligibility and Recoupment
    a. Amount of Recoupment. All paid but unearned bonuses, as defined by Article
    1.A.2.d., of this Manual will be recouped on a prorated basis.
    b. Disenrollment from Basic Training. Members who are disenrolled from basic
    training lose their eligibility to receive the EB.
    c. Disenrollment from “A” School or Striker Program. Members who are disenrolled
    from the qualifying Class "A" school or assigned “Striker” program lose their
    eligibility to receive the bonus. EBs will not be recouped for members who are
    disenrolled under the conditions established in Article 1.A.5.f of this Manual or who
    do not acquire the skill due to unforeseen service actions (e.g., disestablishing the
    member’s rating).
    d. Unqualified to Serve in Eligible Rating. Members lose their eligibility to receive EB
    payments on the date they are no longer qualified to serve in the rating for which the
    bonus was authorized. Additionally, all paid but unearned EBs shall be recouped on
    a prorated basis. A member will be considered not technically qualified to receive
    the bonus if:
    (1) The member no longer serves in the rating for which the bonus was authorized;
    (2) The member's rating designator is removed; or
    (3) Current and future assignment in that military specialty is precluded.
    e. Recoupment Due to Member Fault. Unearned bonuses shall also be recouped if:
    (1) The member is unable to perform the duties of the rating for which the bonus
    was paid due to injuries caused by his or her own misconduct;
    (2) The member is unable to perform the duties of the rating for which the bonus
    was paid as a result of a loss of security clearance due to his or her fault; o(3) The member refuses to perform the duties of the rating for which the bonus was
    paid.
    f. Discharge or Change in Rating. Members who are discharged or change ratings
    prior to completing the period of service for which they were paid an EB shall have
    a prorated share of all paid but unearned bonus recouped except:
    (1) Members involuntarily discharged for the Convenience of the Government in
    connection with a reduction in force;
    (2) Members who are separated or retired for physical disability, illness, injury, or
    other impairment incurred in the line of duty and not due to misconduct;
    (3) Members who receive a dependency or hardship discharge;
    (4) Members discharged early for the purpose of immediate reenlistment, provided
    they reenlist in the eligible rating and the reenlistment term is for a period longer
    than the obligated service remaining in the period for which an EB was paid. For
    example, if a member separates before his or her normal end of enlistment to
    immediately reenlist, the money will not be recouped if the member extends or
    reenlists for a period at least longer than the amount of time the member had
    remaining at separation; or
    (5) Members are required to change ratings based on the needs of the Service.
    g. Eligibility for Continued Bonus Payment in No-fault Situations. Personnel no longer
    classified or assigned to a general petty officer billet due to humanitarian
    reassignment, loss of security clearance not due to the member’s fault, or injury or
    illness through no fault of their own will be entitled to their full bonus.
    h. Weight Probation. Members placed on weight probation in accordance with
    reference (b), Coast Guard Weight and Body Fat Standards Program Manual,
    COMDTINST M1020.8 (series), shall have any unpaid EB suspended until they
    comply with the Coast Guard's allowable weight standards.
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Thanks Bells, the way I interpret that he would become ineligible upon acceptance of SRDC and would forfeit the unpaid portion and return the paid portion in a prorated fashion. What manual did you find that in?

    That's what it looks like, unless there is something else stated otherwise.

    Here's the Manual:
