    My recruiter said that there are no more enlisting bonuses, but my brother (who is in the coast guard) said he got an e-mail telling him that there are first time enlistment bonuses expecially for certain jobs. Can anyone clarify please?

    Well, at the moment, there are no enlistment bonuses. I believe that will change when recruiting opens up for the coming fiscal year, specifically for those entering as an FS or OS.

    I'm entering as an OS, I actually leave for A school in September if boot camp goes fine. So if bonuses are given again, will it only apply to people who enter after the fiscal year?

    Most likely yes, it will only apply to those that sign up while the bonus is active, but double check with your Yeoman.

    Just wanting an update on bonuses.
    Is there any signing bonus for MK rating in the reserves right now?
    If you go through bootcamp and a bonus is available can it be paid retroactive if it is not in your contract? thanks.

    I don't know about the reserves but I would venture a guess and say no. I am positive there is no bonus for an MK in the active duty community, I would assume it would be close to the same in the reserve community. As far as something being paid retro that isn't in your contract... that would be an easy no. If it isn't in your contract, it isn't. Simple as that.

    Ok, I was only asking because I read about the bonus being retroactive on the USCG website:
    "U.S. COAST GUARD RESERVE BONUS PROGRAMS: CY11 Selected Reserve (SELRES) Bonus amounts and eligibility will be posted via ALCOAST and this link once the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2011 is approved. All bonuses will be retroactive to January 1, 2011."

    http://www.uscg.mil/reserve/docs/pa.../bonus.asp

    thank you.

    There is a very good chance than it could be possible. Reserves are something I know very little about... I just know the standard rule of thumb is "if it isn't in the contract, that's that." But Chukles or someone with far greater knowledge will be along and can maybe confirm something for you! I stand corrected but I'm not sure I was wrong! (How's that for a woman's answer!? )
