Applicants for the Welcome Home Bonus fall into two categories: Active or Discharged Servicemembers. This section will detail the difference between the two, including examples.
Active duty personnel are considered as anyone who is currently serving on active duty. Reserve or National Guard personnel are considered active duty if you are currently activated and have not received a DD214 for the service that you are applying for a bonus.
Discharged personnel are considered as anyone who has separated or retired from the military and received a DD214 for the service that they are applying for a bonus. Reserve or National Guard personnel are considered discharged if you have a DD214 for service that you are applying for a bonus. Reserve or Guard personnel can still be a member of the Reserve or National Guard but if you are applying for a bonus for service that you have received a DD214 for, you are considered discharged for the Welcome Home Bonus for purposes.
Example: Reserve or National Guard member was activated in January 2013 to January 2014 and received a DD214 for that activation but is still a member of the Reserve or Guard. That person is considered discharged for their 2013–2014 service when they apply for a bonus for that deployment because they have a DD214 for that service.
Contact the Veterans' Bonus Division if you have questions or concerns about your status as it relates to the Welcome Home Bonus.
