I have been hearing rumors that these pays could be getting drastically cut or even eliminated. Wonder what this is going to do for morale? Good luck trying to find MTI's, MTL's, recruiters, First Sergeants, career aviators, Spec ops, ect... Anyone got and inside info on this subject?
I just read somewhere that fighter pilots were being offered over $200,000 to resign. Ridiculous money.

According to the PDSM, pilots (ANY pilots) aren't eligible for sevice committment waivers under the FY13 FM programs...
"LAF officers possessing an AFS of 11X, 12X or a Core AFS of 13B, 13C, 13D, 13L, 14N, 18X or 64P are ineligible for the LADSC Waiver Program"

So, I guess this means that our "Nuclear Enterprise Incentive Pay" is off the table?
Jag and med pay?
As per the AF Times...here is CMSAF Cody's comments about this topic.
Involuntary special duty
Meanwhile, the Air Force is “pretty far” into a review of all special duties, including first sergeants, military training instructors and professional military education instructors, Cody said.
Right now, airmen can earn up to $450 per month in special duty pay, depending on the assignment. Special duties do not yield promotion points, but they can be looked upon favorably at promotion time.
The current system of looking for volunteers to fill special duties no longer works, he said. It “worked a long time ago and it’s worked over time, but we forced it a lot,” Cody said.
The Air Force is considering requiring commanders to nominate their top performers for special duties to create a bench of the most qualified airmen for these jobs, he said.
Even if they don’t volunteer for special duties, all airmen had to volunteer to get into the Air Force, Cody said.
“What you’re interested in might be irrelevant; it’s what we need you to do,” he said.
However, there would be some minor exceptions for airmen in undermanned career fields — such as battlefield airmen — because the Air Force cannot afford to pull them out for special duties, Cody said.
On the aggregate, the Air Force has enough airmen to fill these special duty roles, and pulling the right airmen at the right time in their careers would be a “force multiplier,” he said.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean the airmen wanted to do it, but I promise you, 9.9 out of 10 of them will go there and do a great job if you send them, and a lot of them will get real charged up about the fact that we selected them to do it, because you always know how good you felt when somebody came up to you and said, ‘Hey, we think you’re this good to be able to do that,’ ” Cody said.
The fact that the Air Force is conducting the review does not mean it believes the airmen currently on special duty are a bad fit, Cody said in the email. Over the past decade, the service has struggled to make sure it has had a “deep enough bench” for special duties.
“Previously, we relied on the volunteer process, but that was set up for a bigger force,” he said. “As we become a smaller Air Force, the decisions we make about each individual airman become more critical. We have to ensure we’re selecting the right people at the right time for the right jobs.”
Many enlisted airmen see special duties as a career killer, but Cody said airmen who step outside their primary career field have a better chance of getting promoted. By having airmen nominated for these positions, special duties would be seen as a mark of distinction.
“Nominations also allow us to identify airmen who may not consider volunteering,” he said. “Some airmen may not consider leaving their functional area or may be too modest to see the potential their leadership can see in them. Building this ‘bench’ will give us a large pool of highly qualified airmen to fill these roles.”
The special duties review is expected to be finished by fall, Cody said.
Why does he update aft, not air force enlisted/
