D. Guidance and Eligibility Requirements for Enlisted Boards and Panels,
PSCINST 1401.2
1. This ALCGRSV provides guidance on R-HYT for FY 2022 Reserve
enlisted candidates. The active duty HYT guidance for FY 2022
is provided SEPCOR in Ref A.
2. Following a three-year R-HYT Panel suspension from FY 2019
through FY 2021 for all Reserve enlisted grades, an FY 2022
Panel will be held for eligible Reserve enlisted members in the grades
of E-7 and E-8. R-HYT is suspended for all other grades through FY 2022.
Panel will be directed to authorize waivers for those members who display
the leadership, accomplishment, performance, conduct, professional skills,
growth, participation standards, and adherence to our Core Values expected
of their grade.
3. Ref B, Ch. 8.B.7.b, lists Professional Growth Point (PGP)
requirements for Reserve enlisted members. Providing the
training opportunities and mentorship required to advance our
enlisted reservists requires active engagement by all Coast
Guard Commands and senior leaders, especially our Chiefs' Mess.
R-HYT is designed to compel rating advancements and promote
consistent personnel flow for the Reserve enlisted workforce.
4. IAW Refs B and C, enlisted reservists in paygrades E-7 and
E-8 who will reach or exceed their PGP by 01 Oct 2021 will be
considered by the FY 2022 R-HYT Panel in April of 2022. All
eligible enlisted reservists in paygrades E-7 and E-8 will
automatically be paneled, so no individual PGP waiver requests
are required. However, R-HYT candidates are encouraged to submit a
communication to the panel. Candidates desiring to submit a
communication to the panel must follow the guidelines of paragraph
9.f of REF D. Communications should be sent via e-mail as a command
endorsed, electronically signed memo to: to arrive no later than the
day before the panel convenes. Early submission of communications
to the panel is encouraged to allow adequate time for correction
should a submission contain unauthorized content. Communications
that do not fully comply with the above references will not be
accepted and shall be returned to the member for editing only if
time permits. Non-compliant wording not corrected by the member
will be redacted from the memo or endorsement prior to releasing
it to the Panel President for consideration.
5. Additional important information regarding the FY 2022 R-HYT
Panel includes the following:
  a. Though the FY 2022 R-HYT will focus on the grades E-7 and
  E-8, a preliminary list of all members who have exceeded their
  PGP will be posted to the CG PSC-RPM-1 R-HYT CG Portal Page:
  Reserve%20High%20Year%20Tenure%20(R-HYT).aspx. The list should be
  checked frequently, as it will be regularly updated.
  b. Total Time in Service (TIS) was used to determine candidacy
  for the FY 2022 R-HYT. TIS is a member’s total military service
  time (Active and Reserve Components). CG-126 determined R-HYT
  candidacy using Pay Entry Base Date (PEBD) data in Direct
  c. Existing waivers for 30 years TIS or 60 years of age that
  extend past 30 Sep 2021 remain in effect. Members with approved
  waivers are excluded from the 2022 R-HYT candidate list and will
  be processed for retirement or separation as dictated in their
  d. R-HYT candidates with more than 18 years of qualified
  service toward a non-regular (Reserve) retirement as of 1 Oct 2022
  will be separated on a date determined IAW Refs B and C.
  e. 2022 R-HYT candidates advanced to the next higher pay grade
  on or before 1 Apr 2022 will be removed from the candidate list
  unless they meet or exceed the 2022 R-HYT PGP for the new pay
  f. Reservists who meet or exceed their PGP between 1 Oct 2021
  and 30 Sep 2022 but are scheduled for retirement or separation by
  another administrative process before 30 Sep 2022 will be retired
  or separated on the earlier date.
  g. Members not granted a waiver are not eligible for nor entitled
  to either a Reenlistment Board or Administrative Separation Board as
  described in REF C.
  h. FY 2022 R-HYT candidates with open Physical Disability
  Evaluation System (PDES) cases will remain in their assigned
  Reserve Component Category (RCC) until their medical board has
  been adjudicated by CG PSC-PSD. Commands shall notify CG PSC-RPM-1
  via email no later than 31 Jan 2022 of all R-HYT candidates with
  an open PDES case or pending medical board.
  i. Members who believe they have been incorrectly identified as
  a 2022 R-HYT candidate shall have their commands immediately notify
  Coast Guard Personnel Service Center, Reserve Personnel Management
  (CG PSC-RPM-1) via email at:
  j. Commands shall review the records of all Reserve enlisted
  personnel in the grades of E-7 and E-8 assigned to their units to
  determine if any assigned members should have been identified as
  an FY 2022 R-HYT candidate, but were not listed. Commands shall
  notify CG PSC-RPM-1 of any discrepancies via email no later than
  31 Jan 2022.

7. CG PSC-RPM-2 will make every effort to minimize unanticipated
vacancies that result from R-HYT. Positions currently filled by 2022
R-HYT candidates will be shopped in Assignment Year 2022 (AY22) to
minimize potential gaps.
8. Commands should properly counsel all members who have exceeded
their PGPs to aid members in advancing and reduce the number of
future R-HYT candidates. Reserve re-enlistment interviews and EER
counseling sessions provide excellent opportunities for commands to
continually monitor PGPs and provide appropriate, targeted counseling.
