This regulation —
a. Prescribes the types of training and activities for which retirement points are authorized and the procedures for recording retirement point credits and training for U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) soldiers. See AR 135-180 for retired pay eligibility for soldiers and former soldiers of the Army Reserve Components.
b. Prescribes basic guidance for strength accountability on DA Form 1379 (U.S. Army Reserve Components Unit Record of Reserve Training) (RCS AG 534).
[See title page.]
Only Ready Reserve soldiers (other than Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) and Delayed Entry Control Group soldiers) and Active Standby Reserve are authorized retirement point credit. As an exception to the above exclusion of ROTC service, potential participants in the Reserve Officers Training Corps/Simultaneous Membership Program (ROTC/SMP) (those not enrolled in the Advanced ROTC Course) are authorized retirement points credit and to be paid for drills in the grade and years of service attained. Participants in the ROTC/SMP enrolled in the Advanced ROTC Course are authorized retirement points and pay for drills until commissioned. Points and service time while in the advanced course are then removed. See AR 601-210 , chapter 10. Participants in the ROTC/SMP Advanced Course who are not commissioned or withdraw from the program are authorized retirement points for the time served as a participant.
The criteria for establishing or changing the retirement year (RY) are as follows:
a. Soldiers in an active Reserve status (Ready or active standby) on 1 July 1949 will have a retirement year from 1 July through 30 June annually unless c below applies.
b. After 1 July 1949, the retirement year beginning date will be as follows and will be changed only if c below applies:
(1) Date of initial entry or reentry (after a break in service) into a Reserve Component. Example 1: If a soldier accepted a USAR commission 30 August 1965 and had no break in active status after the initial enlistment in the Reserve on 20 August 1962, soldier's RY would be 20 August-19 August. Example 2: If a soldier initially entered active reserve status in 1968 and was discharged 21 October 1974, and subsequently reenlists in a USAR Unit on 15 March 1978, RY for his current enlistment would be 15 Mar-14 Mar.
(2) Date of entry into Army of the United States (AUS) without component when soldier later enters (without a service break) an active Reserve status on or after 1 January 1969. Example: If soldier was inducted into Army of the United States 21 July 1971 and had no break in active status, soldier's RY would be 21 July-20 July.
(3) Date of transfer to the Reserve Component upon release from active duty in a regular component. Example: If soldier initially enlisted in Regular Army (RA) on 1 April 1970 and was transferred to an active Reserve Component on 31 July 1973, soldier's RY would be 31 July-30 July.
(4) Date of transfer from an inactive Reserve status to an active Reserve status. Example: If soldier initially entered active Reserve Component on 10 June 1968, was transferred to inactive status (standby inactive, Retired Reserve, or inactive National Guard) on 9 July 1970, returned to active status on 30 March 1971, soldier's RY would be 30 March-29 March.
c. The retirement year once established will not change as long as the soldier has continuous service in an active status in a Reserve and/or regular component. It will change when there is a break in active status. Example: If soldier initially entered active status in Reserve Component 15 May 1968, entered the Regular Army 15 July 1970 without a break, transferred to an active status in Reserve Component 15 July 1973, soldier's RY would be 15 May-14 May.
d. When it is determined that the retirement year ending (RYE) date shown on DA Form 1383 or on any other authorized retirement point credit form is incorrect, a letter requesting correction will be submitted with the Military Personnel Records Jacket, U.S. Army (MPRJ) to the appropriate area commander (as defined in AR 140-1 ). This does not apply to soldiers assigned under the jurisdiction of the Commanding General, U.S. Army Reserve Personnel Center (ARPERCEN).
e. Effective 1 January 1985, enlistment in the DEP does not establish a RY. Time spent in the DEP is not creditable for longevity.
DA Form 1379 is the basic form for reporting the monthly status of USAR personnel assigned to or attached to troop program units (TPU). The Standard Installation/ Division Personnel System (SIDPERS-USAR) is an automated personnel management information system that provides data for unit strength accounting. This system will report organization, authorization and personnel data through the following functions:
a. The organization management function provides support to commanders in maintaining and updating unit identification and related force structure data to support the personnel distribution processes.
b. The personnel management function provides support to commanders for managing and controlling officer and enlisted assignments, reassignments, and transfers; and for identifying personnel requirements by grade and skill.
c. The position management function provides support to commanders for managing and controlling the authorized positions within each unit.
d. The Unit Manning Report provides each unit commander with a management tool for reviewing/maintaining personnel authorization data, and for monitoring and controlling the assignment of unit personnel to authorized positions by position number, paragraph number, and line number.
e. The mobilization support function supports commanders and mobilization planners by providing organization and personnel data on a recurring basis to automated systems which directly support mobilization.
f. The personnel actions function supports commanders and personnel staff officers in providing information to manage and control personnel actions. The Personnel Suspense Roster identifies personnel eligible to reenlist and data related to the incentive status of individual reservists.
g. Since SIDPERS-USAR feeds DOD Reserve Components Common Personnel Data System (RCCPDS) which provides the official assigned strengths used by the Federal Government (planning, programing and budgeting), personnel data accessions and losses must be processed quickly. The guidelines below must be followed to update DA Form 1379 and SIDPERS-USAR.
(1) Units will —
(a) Submit requests for assignment orders to ARPERCEN same day individual requests assignment to unit.
(b) Request orders for reassignment as soon as concurrence/acceptance from gaining unit is received.
(c) Submit requests for discharge orders 30 days prior to the individual's expiration term of service (ETS) when it is apparent individual will not reenlist.
(d) Not hold at the unit, under any circumstances, a request for orders when it is evident the individual will be a loss.
(e) Initiate immediate follow-up action when required documentation has been submitted to the SIDPERS Interface Branch to input a change to DA Form 1379; i.e. gain, loss, or personal data, and the change has not occurred on the second preprinted DA Form 1379 received after the submission of request.
(2) Area commanders will —
(a) Cut and return orders to units within 10 working days after request for orders has been received and approved.
(b) Process personnel changes, gains, and losses to the SIDPERS-USAR.
(c) Make inquiries to units, when possible, if a remark has been made on DA Form 1379 such as" Pending Orders" or" Pending Transfer," to determine the status of request for orders.
(3) ARPERCEN will produce orders and return to requesting unit within 30 working days after receipt for assignment — if the individual is in the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) strength.
(4) ARPERCEN will —
(a) Submit records to the appropriate Continental United States Army (CONUSA) within 60 working days after receipt of request for assignment — again if the individual is in the IRR strength.
(b) Process other individual requests as quickly as possible.
(c) Provide SIDPERS-USAR data processing support.
The Duty Qualification Code indicates the ability of a person to perform the duties of the authorized position to which assigned or the duties to which assigned as excess. Follow the procedures in the SIDPERS-USAR Users Manual for accessioning and updating the Duty Qualification Codes. The qualification and training status of each person assigned will be indicated by a one-letter code. (See Table 1-1 for the Duty Qualification Codes and definitions.
The limitations on the number of points which may be credited to a soldier during a retirement year are —
a. Maximum — 365 (366 during leap year) points.
b. Maximum for inactive duty training (IDT) — 60 points for IDT and membership points. However, Annual or Terminal Statement of Retirement Points will report all points earned.
c. Partial year — If a soldier is separated or removed from an active status during a retirement year, the soldier may be credited with a proportionate maximum number of IDT points for that year as shown in appendix A . Appendix B shows the minimum number of points required for a partial year for qualifying service. Appendix C shows the number of membership points authorized for a partial year.
d. Membership — 15 points for each year in an active status. If the soldier is on active duty for more than 350 days (351) in leap year), membership points will be reduced so that maximum 365 (366) points are not exceeded.
Retirement points may be earned by USAR soldiers for active duty (AD), or while in an active Reserve status, for active duty for training (ADT), initial active duty for training (IADT), involuntary active duty for training (involuntary ADT), annual training (AT), inactive duty training (IDT), Reserve membership, and for other activities specified in this regulation.
a. For purposes of this regulation, AD, ADT, IADT, involuntary ADT, and AT are treated as separate, mutually exclusive categories (in contrast to definitions found in AR 310-25 ). Their treatment of such conforms with their usage in AR 140-1 and AR 135-91 .
b. Types of IDT are as follows (See AR 140-1):
(1) Regularly scheduled unit training includes unit training assemblies (UTA), and multiple unit training assemblies (MUTA).
(2) Regularly scheduled training (RST) other than UTA/MUTA.
(3) Make up assemblies for missed UTA/MUTA due to AT.
(4) Equivalent training (ET) in lieu of scheduled UTA/MUTA or RST.
(5) Additional training assemblies (ATA).
(6) Two-hour unit training assemblies.
(7) Training of individual soldiers in nonpay status.
a. Authority and specific individual qualifications required for earning retirement points are in AR 140-1 and other regulations governing the type of Reserve duty training to be performed.
b. All USAR soldiers are classified into alphabetic training/pay categories (T/PC) for determination of individual requirements for paid IDT and AT (see AR 140-1, fig 3-1). These categories determine individual status in the Ready Reserve (Selected Reserve and Individual Ready Reserve and the Standby Reserve (Active and Inactive).
a. Personnel on AD, ADT, IADT, involuntary ADT, or AT are awarded 1 point for each calendar day they serve in one of these categories and may not be awarded additional points for other activities while in such status.
b. Table 2-1 provides criteria for award of retirement points for IDT performed in accordance with AR 140-1 (unless another reference is cited). Most types of IDT are covered by one of the following rules on required duration of IDT and calendar day limitations on points.
(1) Four-hour rule. One point for each scheduled 4-hour period of IDT at UTA, RST, ET, ATA, or make up assembly. Maximum of 2 points in 1 calendar day.
(2) Two-hour rule. One point for each 2 hour or greater period. Two-hour aggregates of shorter periods may be used, except in the case of 2-hour unit training assemblies. Maximum of 1 point in 1 calendar day.
(3) Two/eight-hour rule. One point for each 2 hour or greater period. Two-hour aggregates of shorter periods may be used except in the case of 2-hour unit training assemblies. Award of a second point in the same day requires additional hours to bring the day's total to a minimum of 8. Maximum of 2 points in 1 calendar day.
c. Points may not be awarded under more than one of the rules in b above during any single calendar day.
d. No individual may be awarded a total of more than 2 points for IDT in 1 calendar day, with the following exceptions:
(1) TPU soldier who recruits a new member as specified under rule 17 in Table 2-1.
(2) Correspondence courses completed as specified under rule 4 in table 2-1.
The various forms used to maintain and record the award and entitlement of retirement points are described below. In addition, DD Form 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty) is used to determine retirement points (see para 3-7 ).
a. Purpose—use. This is a SIDPERS-USAR output roster listing soldiers assigned or attached to Reserve units (to include subunits established for payroll reporting), Individual Mobilization Augmentee (IMA) detachments, and reinforcement training units or USAR school student detachments. It contains personnel data on each soldier and is used —
(1) To record IDT drill attendance/status for assigned and attached personnel.
(2) As a source document to verify accuracy of unit payrolls under Joint Uniform Military Pay System (JUMPS-RC) by authorized inspecting and verifying personnel.
(a) As a source document for reporting specific data items which are input to the personnel information systems.
(b) Not used.
(3) As a permanent record of retirement points earned.
(4) As a basic report for reflecting unit performance and constructive attendance.
(5) As historical record of unit training.
(6) For annual training attendance.
(8) By reinforcement training units (RTU), IMA detachments, and USAR school student detachments to record authorized training of attached nonunit soldiers.
(9) To determine eligibility for benefits if injury or death is incurred while in training.
(1) DA Form 1379 will be prepared monthly by ARPERCEN from updated data and forwarded to units in quintuplicate. A DA Form 1379 Control Ledger will be sent to each SUBMACOM. The DA Form 1379 report contains the following:
(a) Heading. Contains unit identification information and column headings for personal data sections.
(b) Assigned strength section. Lists all personnel in the unit official assigned strength and basic personal data items, and also lists personnel on JUMPS-RC and SIDPERS data base.

(1) A single form may be used to report a soldier attached to a unit who performs two or more training assemblies in the same month. A single form may be used to report two or more soldiers attached from the same unit of assignment. These single forms may be used as long as they are prepared and submitted within 3 days after performance of training.
(2) DA Form 1380 will be prepared for a unit soldier who performs equivalent training or additional training with his or her unit subsequent to the submission of DA Form 1379. One copy of the DA Form 1380 will be retained by the unit to post the appropriate entry on the following month's DA Form 1379. A copy of the DA Form 1380 will be sent to the designated input station and a copy filed in the Personal Financial Record (PFR) in accordance with AR 37-104-10.
(3) The code "P" or" N" will be entered in item 10c before the retirement point credit. The code "P" indicates the soldier is entitled to inactive duty pay for the duties performed; the code "N" indicates the soldier is entitled to retirement point credit only.
(4) Enter in item 10d a brief description of the duties performed. Appendix E lists the main type of training duties with training codes to be used. (The term "Administrative Duties" will not be entered unless soldier is authorized on orders to perform such duties.)

Machine prepared letters may be used in lieu of DA Form 2328 by commands having data processing capability. Note : Similar extension courses completed through another component (during retirement year) will also accrue points as indicated on completion certificates.
a. Use. This form is used to report the number of course credit hours creditable to unit and nonunit soldiers for satisfactory course completion during a retirement year.
b. Initiation and preparation. When a soldier has earned 1 or more retirement points, service schools will prepare one copy of the form or letter for letter or the soldier's retirement year ending date, upon entry on active duty, or upon termination or completion of course enrollment. These reports will show the total number of hours completed as of that date regardless of whether a full course or subcourse has been completed. Soldiers are responsible for advising service schools of current retirement year dates on enrollment application. The custodian of the soldier's file is responsible for informing schools when soldier enters on active duty and for requesting a terminal report.
c. Disposition. Service schools will forward the form within 15 days after the due date as follows:
(1) For unit soldiers, to their unit of assignment.
(2) For nonunit soldiers, send to CG, ARPERCEN, at the address noted in paragraph 3-3c(1)(b) above.
(3) After posting of points, the form may be given to the soldier or destroyed.
a. Purpose/use. This form, which is prepared along with a Retirement to maintain a record of the soldier's accumulated retirement points. The Retirement Credit Card Roster provides unit commanders with a means of controlling the closing out and disposition of DA Form 3593 for the previous retirement year. The roster lists the unit soldiers for whom a new DA Form 3593 was produced. An "action" column on the roster contains a message concerning disposition of the closed out DA Form 3593. When the message is "3593 Due," see g(1) below; when message is "Obligated EM/EW," see g(2) below; when message is "New Member," transfer data from the temporary DA Form 3593 prepared at the unit to the computer produced DA Form 3593. Keep the new form updated until receipt of the next DA Form 3593 and/or make proper disposition as in g below.
b. Initiation and preparation.
(1) The form along with a Retirement Credit Card Control Roster is prepared by ARPERCEN during the SIDPERS-USAR EOM processing cycle upon a soldier's initial entry into USAR unit and for those assigned unit soldiers whose retirement year ending month is 2 months subsequent to the processing month. Unit Commanders will prepare a temporary DA Form 3593 pending receipt of the computer produced form from ARPERCEN. The unit commander will return the completed prepunched DA Form 3593 to Cdr, ARPERCEN, ATTN: DARP-AIP-DT, for preparation of a Statement of Retirement Points when the soldier —
(a) Has a retirement year anniversary date.
(b) Enters on active duty, other than ADT.
(c) Enters active status of the Army National Guard or other service.
(d) Transfers to inactive status.
(e) Is discharged.
(f) Is deceased. Note: Non-CONUS units will submit DA Form 3593 to their local data processing unit for preparation of the Annual or Terminal Statement of Retirement Points.
(2) The prepunched data on DA Form 3593 by ARPERCEN includes the name, military personnel code (MPC) (O — commissioned officer, W — warrant officer, and E — enlisted personnel), social security number (SSN), month and day of beginning and ending retirement date, and unit identification code (UIC) (consisting of parent unit code; subunit code; and morning report indicator). All other data, including changes to prepunched data, will be entered in pencil by the soldier's unit commander. (See figs 3-2 and 3-3 .) If the soldier has changed units during the retirement year period, the gaining unit will see that the UIC on front of the card is corrected.
c. Computation. The number of points to be awarded annually is totaled as of the month and day in which the retirement year ends. Record only those points creditable during the reporting periods in the appropriate month column on DA Form 3593.
d. Maintenance. DA Form 3593 will be maintained in accordance with this paragraph. A description of data and instructions for completion of retirement point total and calendar months columnar headings follows:

In addition, all periods of AD, ADT, and AT will be shown in this section.
(b) Total certified correct. The purpose of this item is to certify that all entries are complete, correct, and that the form reflects the total points the soldier earned during the period. DA Form 3593 must be signed by both the soldier and certifying officer.
e. Consolidation. The DA Form 3593 must reflect all retirement points earned by a soldier during the period for which a corresponding Statement of Retirement Points will be prepared. Accordingly, the partial retirement point records issued for the period reported must be incorporated in the pertinent DA Form 3593. This includes partial year retirement point records issued by ARPERCEN, ARNG or Reserve Components of any of the Armed Services.
f. Submission. Update and forward the DA Form 3593 to —
(1) Cdr, ARPERCEN, ATTN: DARP-AIP-DT, annually, not later than the last day of the month following the month when RYE occurs. DA Form 3593 for all soldiers whose RYE occurs during a specific month will be grouped together and forwarded at one time to CG, ARPERCEN. Exceptions to the suspense date may be made by the CG, ARPERCEN for valid reasons. Example, a soldier is enrolled in Army extension courses and additional time is required for the receipt of records from the school.
(2) Send the DA Form 3593
(a) With the soldier's MPRJ upon request for transfer to a USAR control group or discharge.
(b) With the soldier's MPRJ upon request for transfer to a USAR unit in another area command or the Army National Guard (officers only).
(c) With a copy of transfer orders issued by the area commander if soldier was transferred to the Army National Guard (nonobligated enlisted soldiers only).
(d) With a copy of orders placing a soldier on active duty (other than ADT) as an individual.
(e) With a copy of discharge orders issued by the commander of training installation if soldier was discharged while on initial active duty training.
(f) With a copy of report in the format required by AR 600-10 if soldier dies.
(g) Exceptions to ( a ) and ( b ) above may be made by the area commander when a request for discharge/transfer is submitted and DA Form 3593 must be retained to post the last unit training assembly which soldier will attend or if DA Form 3593 is incomplete and required information is being obtained for its completion.

This form is issued to all individuals at
time of release from the Active Army or from Active
Duty Guard Reserve status. It is also issued to USAR

|Soldier is qualified in all nine characters of Position Requirement Code (PRC), and has been awarded a PMOS/PSSI, SMOS/ASSI, or AMOS, and special qualification identifiers (SQI)/ASI, or LIC that matches all characters of the duty position. This code is also used to identify overqualified personnel (e.g. an SFC, 71L40 assigned to an E6, 71L30 duty position).||Q|
|Soldier has completed IADT (BCT/AIT) and has been awarded a PMOS/SMOS/AMOS which is a feeder MOSC for the DMOS, and soldier has also been awarded the SQI/ASI, and LIC required for the position. This code is used to identify personnel carried against higher grade positions, but who are otherwise qualified. For example, an SSG 76P3PU8 assigned to an E7, 76P4PU8 position and an SSG 75B30 assigned to an E7, 75Z40 position would be reported with this code. A soldier who is qualified but does not have an award of the required SQI/ASI, or LIC will be reported as code N, L, S, or X as appropriate.||P|
|Soldier is not qualified, and the commander requires assistance in training the soldier (through a USAR school, service school, AT, or ADT).||N|
|Soldier is not qualified, but the commander is training and qualifying the soldier through supervised on-the-job training (SOJT), unit school, and/or correspondence courses; no training assistance is required. Use also for reporting E8 and E9 soldiers in Command Sergeant Major duty positions who have not yet been promoted to CSM.||L|
|Soldier is not qualified, but is scheduled (quota obtained) for, or is currently attending formal MOS training at a service school, USARF school, AT, or ADT.||S|
|Soldier is not qualified, but is awaiting IADT, currently on IADT, or awaiting the final phase of AIT (split training option). This code applies to officers awaiting/attending the intial branch/specialty course.||A|
|Soldier is not qualified and cannot be programmed for any position required in the unit authorization document. Examples would be a soldier whose physical profile prohibits him/her from qualifying for any MOS authorized in the unit, or a female soldier in a unit authorized male soldiers only. Soldiers reported under this code should be reported to the MUSARC as excess and appropriate action taken (e.g. transfer to another geographical TPU, transfer to IRR or discharge). Do not use this code to report overstrength soldiers who would otherwise qualify for another code.||X|
1. Officers assigned to a duty position declared ''Branch Immaterial" on the MTOE/TDA will be considered qualified once they have qualified in their basic branch.
|2. Females occupying a position vacancy which is listed on the MTOE/TDA as a combat arms DMOS or PRC but which may be occupied by females will be considered qualified if remaining characters of MOS/SSI match PRC/DMOS. Example: A female soldier with PMOS of 71L3X occupying a vacancy with DMOS of 11B3X in a training division authorized a female for that position would be qualified (i.e. coded ''Q'').|
|3. SQI precedence will be maintained in reporting PMOS. Example: A soldier with a PMOS of 11B4P occupying a vacancy with a DMOS of 11B4H would be considered qualified, provided soldier was also awarded the SQI ''H'' (instructor). As an exception to SQT ''X'' (Drill Sergeant) will always be assigned to the PMOS for all qualified soldier assigned to a drill sergeant duty position. (See AR 600-200 , para 2-33a.)|
|4. DMOS for ROTC/SMP participants will be 09R20. DMOS for ROTC/SMP potential participants will be 09R10. DMOS for OCS candidates while enrolled in either an Active Army or Reserve Component Officer Candidate School will be 09W00. DMOS for Warrant Officer Candidate School candidates will be 09T00. All of these soldiers will be considered DMOS qualified and reported with code ''Q'' while in candidate, participant, or potential participant status.|

The consulting counsel may advise the individual regarding the merits of the contemplated separation action when, in his or her professional judgement, such advice is appropriate. The consulting counsel should, however, inform the individual that he or she cannot represent him or her before a board of officers unless he or she is also appointed as counsel for representation. Communications between the individual and consulting counsel regarding the merits of the separation action are privileged communications between the attorney and client. ( AR 135-175 )
b. A qualified counsel who is a commissioned officer of the Judge Advocate General's Corps who is appointed to consult with and advise, at the outset of any initiated involuntary separation proceedings, and individual being proceedings, an individual being processed for separation under this regulation. Nonlawyer counsel may be appointed when the soldier's place of assignment is more than 250 miles from sufficient judge advocate resources. When a nonlawyer counsel is appointed, appropriated authority will certify in a permanent record that a lawyer with these qualifications is not available and state the qualifications of the substituted nonlawyer counsel, who must be a commissioned officer in the grade of first lieutenant or higher. Such counseling may be accomplished face-to-face, by mail, or by telephone, as appropriate. This officer will advise the individual concerning the basis of the contemplated separation and its effect, the rights available to the soldier, and the effect of any action taken by the soldier in waiving such rights. The soldier will also be advised that the enlistment may be voided if he or she is being considered for separation for fraudulent entry (desertion from another military service). Consulting counsel may also advise the soldier regarding the merits of the contemplated separation when counsel believes such advice is proper. The soldier should be informed that the counsel cannot represent the soldier before an administrative board unless appointed as counsel for representation. Consulting counsel will advise the soldier that if he or she receives a discharge certificate which is less than an honorable discharge certificate, there is no automatic upgrading nor review by any Government agency. Upgrading is considered only on application to the Army Board for Correction of Military Records of the Army Discharge Review Board. Consideration by either of these boards does not guarantee upgrading of a discharge certificate that is less than an honorable discharge certificate. Communications between the soldier and consulting counsel regarding the merits of the separation action are privileged communications between the attorney and his or her client. If one of the basis for separation includes a continuous unauthorized absence of 180 days or more, the counsel will inform the soldier that a discharge under other than honorable conditions is a conditional bar to benefits administered by the Veterans Administration, not-withstanding any action by a Discharge Review Board. ( AR 135-178 )

(See fig 1-1 for an example of a statement of nonavailability and appointment of counsel.)
(2) The appointed counsel for an individual being processed for separation for cause, where only separation with an Honorable Discharge Certificate may be effected (para 2-11), should be a lawyer if one is reasonably available.
