Responsible Office - NAVPERSCOM (PERS-40BB) - (901)874-3523/DSN 882-3523
The Medical Assignment Screening was established to create requirements to perform an assignment screening for members being returned to duty following temporary limited duty (TLD), or being found "Fit for Continued Naval Service" by the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB). Assignment screening determines whether a member is worlwide assignable or assignment limited.
Responsibility for assignment screening lies with the member's parent command. The assignment screening process and report will be completed within 15 days of being found either RTD or "Fit for Continued Naval Service". The MTF will either classify a member as worlwide assignable or assignment limited.
For members found worlwide assignable: The parent command will forward the screening report to the servicing PSD upon receipt. PSD will submit a Class YJ availability report within 24 hours for enlisted members.
For enlisted members found assignment limited: The member's parent command will notify NAVPERSCOM, Enlisted Distribution Division (PERS 40-BB) via naval message. For non-rated enlisted members, ensure NAVPERSCOM, Enlisted Personnel Readiness and Support Branch (PERS-4013) is an information addressee.
An assignment screening must be completed no later than 15 days after a member is found able to return to duty (RTD) at the conclusion of TLD; found "Fit for Continued Naval Service" by the PEB; or directed by NAVPERSCOM due to unresolved LIMDU (ACC 105) situations.
