Grade Determination Board
Grade determination boards – particularly for service members preparing to retire, almost any record of substantiated misconduct in your personnel file will be reviewed by a grade determination board, which will decide if you deserve to retire at the grade you currently hold. Frequently, those with a history of substantiated misconduct are administratively reduced to a lower rank, resulting in a lower retirement pension. Over time, this loss can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
