    2. The purpose of this message is to clarify the below listed policy changes.
    This message applies to all components of the Army.

    a. Age. The maximum enlistment age is 35 for qualified personnel
    (Non-prior Service (NPS)) who enlist into the Regular Army (RA), Army Reserve (AR) or Army National Guard (ARNG). The maximum enlistment age of prior service personnel (PS) entering the Regular Army is 35 and will be based on their prior active service computation as explained in the criteria below. Enlistment of PS personnel into the Reserve Components (AR/ARNG) will be determined by their ability to qualify for non-regular retired pay by age 60 as described below.

    1. NPS personnel enlisting into the RA must enter active duty or ship to training on or before their 35th birthday.

    2. NPS personnel enlisting into the AR/ARNG must be accessed (enlisted) on or before their 35th birthday.

    3. PS personnel enlisting into the RA, AR, or ARNG under this policy may enter active duty after age 35, if otherwise eligible based on prior Active or Reserve service computation. See below:

    (a) PS members processing for the Regular Army: after member's total prior active service is subtracted from their current age, their age for enlistment must not exceed 35 and the member must qualify for regular retirement with 20 or more years of active Federal Service by age 62.

    (b) PS members processing for the Reserve Components (AR/ARNG): after member is given credit for total prior service (Active and Reserve Component) the member must be able to qualify for non-regular retired pay by age 60. For members processing for entry into an RC age is not a factor as long as the member
    qualifies for non-regular retired pay by age 60.


    3. RA enlistees must be eligible for regular retirement by age 62. AR/ARNG
    enlistees must be eligible for non-regular retirement by age 60.


    NOTE: As an exception to the above policy, the maximum age for MOS 09L (Dari,
    Farsi and Pashto) remains at 42 for both RA and AR/ARNG. Age waivers/policy exceptions will be considered for specialty officer branches such as JAG (Attorney), Chaplain, and AMEDD (Healthcare Professionals)


    4. These changes will remain in effect until incorporated into the next update
    of AR 601-210, or rescinded.
