Full Time Support Continuation and Retention
Full Time Support CAPT Selective Retention Board:
The FY-20 SELRET Board (#416) adjourned on 16 September 2019. Individuals considered by the board will be notified of the results via email and official letter. Statistics have been updated below.
Anyone not selected for retention at Gate 1 will be required to be released from active duty no later than 1 September 2021. Anyone not selected for retention at Gate 2 will be required to be released from active duty no later than 1 September 2020.
SECNAVINST 1920.6D requires Full Time Support (FTS) captains to be involuntarily released from active duty at the end of three years time-in-grade unless they are retained by a Selective Retention (SELRET) board. The board is held annually and is conducted using two “gates” grouping those eligible by their competitive category (Unrestricted Line, Human Resources, Aviation Maintenance Duty Officer, and Supply Corps). Gate 1 considers captains who are in their first full year time-in-grade and Gate 2 considers captains in their fourth year time-in-grade. Gate 1 retention allows a captain to remain on active duty through at least 1 September of the fifth FY following the FY of promotion. Gate 2 retention allows a captain to remain on active duty through 30 years of commissioned service or age 62, whichever comes first.
Recent Board Results (total numbers include all competitive categories):
FY-20 Gate 1 – Eligible: 20 / Retained: 19 (95% opportunity)
FY-20 Gate 2 – Eligible: 11 / Retained: 7 (64% opportunity)

Full Time Support CDR Selective Early Release from Active Duty:
An FTS Commander SERAD Board is not expected to be held during FY20. The last SERAD board was held in FY-11.
When required, SECNAVINST 1920.6D allows the convening of an FTS Commander Selective Early Release from Active Duty (SERAD) board. The board is held by grouping FTS commanders by their competitive category and FY of promotion. Normally, FTS commanders become SERAD eligible during the fourth fiscal year after their date of rank. Those selected by a SERAD board will be involuntarily released from active duty by 1 September of the FY in which the board was convened, or by the 1st day of the 7th month following the month in which the board’s report was approved, whichever is later.
