Navy Recruiting Dependent Definition

The definition of a "dependent" below is provided for enlistment or affiliation purposes only. The definition does not apply to entitlement of pay and allowances, medical care, exchange and commissary privileges, or other benefits. Such determinations are made only after enlistment or affiliation and recruiting personnel shall not render opinions on future entitlements. A dependent for enlistment and affiliation purposes is defined as any of the following:
  • A spouse by marriage, not to include a common law spouse. A spouse is not considered a dependent when the spouse is on active duty or serving as a SELRES in Reserve Component of any service. A spouse in the Individual Ready Reserve is considered a dependent.
  • Any natural child (legitimate or illegitimate) or child adopted by the applicant, provided:
(a) the child is unmarried
(b) is considered a dependent under the laws of the state having jurisdiction
(c) the applicant claims the child as theirs
(d) the applicant's name is listed on the birth certificate as a parent
(e) a court order establishes paternity or if any person makes an allegation of paternity that has not been adjudicated by a court.

Note: A Child Support Order is required by all Active Duty applicants who have out of wedlock children prior to processing. The order must be from the State the child resides in.

  • Unborn child(ren). Unmarried applicants who self-admit to being the father of an unborn child(ren) or for whom a positive legal/medical paternity determination has been made are considered to have a dependent(s) for enlistment and affiliation purposes.
  • Stepchildren of the applicant.
  • Stepchildren of the applicant’s spouse.
  • Children from the spouse’s previous marriage that are under the age of 18.
  • Any parent or other person who can be claimed as a dependent on the applicant’s income tax return.
WARNING: Relinquishing custody does not terminate dependency.

Highest Grade Determination

When joining the Navy one of the basic eligibility requirements is your level of education. Your education level of education is determined by the number of years completed and credential earned - it shall be determined by the number of academic school years completed, not necessarily passed in a daytime, structured program of teacher lead classroom instruction. Completion of an academic school year is defined as student attendance for a complete academic school year. The minimum years of education to be recorded on enlistment documents is eight years even if there is no verifiable years completed.

'Bout time I guess :)

Made the move to Wordpress on my Navy Blog. I did create a new Wordpress theme for it not only to match the site but also take advantage of SEO opportunities
