The rank order number for each individual identified for advancement in the ERAA is no longer indicated. The original rank order number may be found at the Pay and Personnel Center website, but is subject to change.

Commanding officers will ensure personnel advancing to pay gradesE-7 thru E-9 obligate required service prior to advancement per Article 3.A.21.c of the Enlistments, Accessions, Evaluations and Advancements Manual, COMDTINST M1000.2 (series). 

A member must maintain the CO’s recommendation for advancement (Ready) for the period from recommendation to advancement. In addition, E-7, E-8, and E-9 candidates must not have an unsatisfactory conduct mark on an enlisted evaluation for 24 months prior to the terminal eligibility date. Personnel failing to maintain the CO's recommendation (Ready) for this period will be invalidated from the Servicewide Exam in which they participated. Personnel who have been invalidated must be recommended and qualify again through a new SWE competition.

Upon approved advancement, members are authorized to change their rank as it appears in the Global Address List (GAL) from the Self Service portal. This can be done as a standard user without requiring admin-privileges, does not require a call to CGFIXIT, and does not require a CGFIXIT Ticket. See this self-help tech-tip for more information.

Congratulations to all those advancing!
