Senior Special Forces troops reap reward of retention bonuses

Critical Skills Retention Bonuses are retention incentives for senior NCOs and warrant officers in high-priority MOSs who are nearing 20 years of service, or who already are eligible for retirement.

Under law, soldiers may not receive a CSRB of more than $200,000. Currently the Army does not authorize CSRB payments in excess of $150,000.

Bonuses generally are tax-free if paid in a combat zone.
