ALCGRSV 059/22 SUBJ: FY 2023 RESERVE HIGH YEAR TENURE (R-HYT) FOR THE RESERVE ENLISTED WORKFORCE A. Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST M1001.28 (series) B. Military Separations, COMDTINST M1000.4 (series) C. Guidance and Eligibility Requirements for Enlisted Boards and Panels, PSCINST 1401.2 1. This ALCGRSV provides guidance on R-HYT for FY 2023 Reserve enlisted candidates. 2. A FY 2023 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 2023. 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 A, 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 Chief's Mess. R-HYT is designed to compel rating advancements and promote consistent personnel flow for the Reserve enlisted workforce. 4. IAW Refs A and B, enlisted reservists in paygrades E-7 and E-8 who will reach or exceed their PGP by 01 Oct 2022 will be considered by the FY 2023 R-HYT Panel 31 Jan - 01 Feb 2023. 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 C. 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 2023 R-HYT Panel includes the following: a. Though the FY 2023 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 2023 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 Access. c. Existing waivers for 30 years TIS or 60 years of age that extend past 30 Sep 2022 remain in effect. Members with approved waivers are excluded from the 2023 R-HYT candidate list and will be processed for retirement or separation as dictated in their waivers. d. R-HYT candidates with more than 18 years of qualified service toward a non-regular (Reserve) retirement as of 1 Oct 2023 will be separated on a date determined IAW Refs A and B. e. 2023 R-HYT candidates advanced to the next higher pay grade on or before 31 Jan 2023 will be removed from the candidate list unless they meet or exceed the 2023 R-HYT PGP for the new pay grade. f. Reservists who meet or exceed their PGP between 1 Oct 2022 and 30 Sep 2023 but are scheduled for retirement or separation by another administrative process before 30 Sep 2023 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 B. h. FY 2023 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 Dec 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 2023 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 2023 R-HYT candidate, but were not listed. Commands shall notify CG PSC-RPM-1 of any discrepancies via email no later than 31 Dec 2022. 6. 2023 R-HYT timeline: a. NLT 01 Nov 2022: Initial E-7 and E-8 candidate list released on CG Portal at link in paragraph 5.a above. b. 01 Dec 2022: Deadline for voluntary retirement requests for retirement eligible FY 2023 R-HYT candidates. c. 15 Dec 2022: Final E-7 and E-8 candidate list posted on CG Portal. d. OOA 31 Jan 2023: FY 2023 R-HYT Panel convenes. e.

CG PSC-RPM-2 will make every effort to minimize unanticipated vacancies that result from R-HYT. Positions currently filled by 2023 R-HYT candidates will be shopped in Assignment Year 2023 (AY23) 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. 9.
