        Bonus Recoupment at Separation

• At separation, Sailors should be advised that separation prior
  to the end of a contract for which a bonus was paid, will result
  in the recoupment of the unearned portion of that bonus.
• OPNAVINST 1160.8A and OPNAVINST 1160.9 state that if a
  Sailor is separated for medical reasons or a condition not a
  disability there will be no recoupment of a bonus. This is no
  longer the case, and these instructions are currently being
  updated to reflect current policy.
• If a Sailor leaves the Navy and was paid SRB or EB, the
  Sailor should expect recoupment of the unearned portion of
  that bonus. This is in compliance with DODFMR, Volume 7A,
  Chapter 2.
