The Service Award Base date (SABD) is a calculation of the total number of months of active service with the Exchange, as well as certain other creditable service such as prior military service, prior APF service and transfer of function from other NAFIs.
If an associate has breaks in service, then when they are rehired their SABD is recalculated to include all prior periods of service.
Note the SABD will not remain at the original hire date after rehire. To calculate the adjusted SABD, all active service time is totaled, then subtracted from the latest hire date, arriving at the adjusted date.
