Paperwork Involved with Officer Separation
been  absent  from  the  place  of  duty  for  at  least  3  months or who has been sentenced to confinement in a federal or state penitentiary or correctional institution after having been found guilty of an offense by a court other than a court-martial or other military court, and whose sentence  has  become  final.  There  is  no  elaboration  on the type of offense or the length of the confinement awarded. Action to initiate dropping an officer from the rolls should normally be undertaken by CHNAVPERS or the Commandant  of  the  Marine  Corps,  on  a  case-by-case basis,  after  a  finding  that  one  or  both  of  the  previous conditions exist, and that the return of the officer to military ,control for processing for separation for cause under  SECNAVINST  1920.6A  will  serve  no  useful purpose. Neither  a  hearing  nor  a  board  of  inquiry  is  required to  drop  an  officer  from  the  rolls.  However,  the  officer considered  must  be  notified  of  such  prospective  adverse action  (or  reasonable  efforts  must  be  made  to  provide such notification if actual notification cannot be made) and  provided  the  opportunity  to  respond  within  30  days of receipt of notification. Upon completion of the dropping  from  the  rolls  action,  notification  will  be addressed  to  the  officer  concerned.  No  certificate  of discharge  is  issued  upon  separation  by  dropping  from the rolls since such service is not characterized. For the purpose  of  any  federal  benefit  based  upon characterization  of  service,  dropping  from  the  rolls  must be  considered  as  a  discharge  under  other  than  honorable conditions.  Except  for  members  who  are  absent  without authority,  members  who  are  entitled  to  retired  pay  may not be dropped from the rolls unless they are ineligible to receive their retired pay under authority of subchapter II,  chapter  83,  Title  5,  USC. Statutory  retirements  are  made  to  guarantee  youth and vigor in responsible positions and to prevent stagnation in grade. Accordingly, the Navy is governed bylaws  that  require  the  retirement  of  permanent  officers and warrant officers after they reach a certain age, fail selection  for  promotion,  complete  a  certain  number  of years of service, or a combination thereof. Statutory retirements  require  no  application  from  the  officer concerned  as  they  are  handled  administratively  by BUPERS.  The  statutory  retirement  age  for  permanently commissioned  Regular  officers  in  the  grade  of  ensign and above is 62 years. Those officers who fall into this category are retired on the first day of the month following the month in which they attain age 62. An officer  with  a  grade  above  rear  admiral  who  has  reached age  62,  may,  at  the  discretion  of  the  President,  be retained on active duty until the officer attains age 64. However, the number of officers in this status may not exceed 10 on active duty at any given time. The health of  an  officer  has  a  bearing  on  the  circumstances  of retirement. If an officer is disabled and cannot perform the  duties  of  office,  the  person  will  be  retired  with disability, regardless of age or length of service. Statutory service retirements for officers are contained in Section 1251, Title 10, USC. Statutory  Retirement Dismissal from the service is equivalent to a dishonorable discharge and is the lowest type of separation an officer can receive. and may even be incarcerated If the officer is found guilty, or if the sentence does not include dismissal or death,  SECNAV  substitutes  an  administrative  discharge for the dismissal order. If no court is convened to try the dismissed officer within 6 months of the officer’s application,  an  administrative  discharge  replaces  the dismissal. Dismissal Except in time of war, dismissal from the service is done  only  as  the  result  of  sentence  by  general court-martial.  When  the  sentence  includes  dismissal  and SECNAV  approves  the  action,  the  Judge  Advocate General’s  office  notifies  the  officer  concerned  by  letter that the officer is thereby dismissed from the service. In time of war, SECNAV, acting for the President, may dismiss an officer without court-martial. As distinguished  from  being  dropped  from  the  rolls,  such an officer may make written application for trial by court-martial  on  the  charges  on  which  the  officer  was dismissed.  If  tried  and  convicted  of  those  charges, however,  the  officer  would  probably  still  be  dismissed Disability    Retirement Section  1201,  Title  10,  USC,  states  the  statutory authority  for  retirement  of  personnel  of  the  Navy  and Naval  Reserve  for  service-connected  disabilities.  Under this law, a member maybe permanently retired or placed on  the  temporary  disability  retired  list  (TDRL) dependent  upon  a  determination  that  the  disability  that necessitates  retirement  is,  or  may  be,  of  a  permanent nature. Final determination as to entitlement to disability  retirement  benefits  rests  with  SECNAV. The  law  governing  physical  disability  retirement and separations states that: 12-5
