The Allgemeine-SS was the name for the "General SS" (as in 'generic' or 'basic' SS) which consisted of part-time mustering SS formations created under the Nazi Party between 1925 and 1945.

Both the Allgemeine and Waffen-SS used the same SS ranks, but maintained different criteria for promotion. Thus, it was common for an SS member to hold two SS ranks, one in the General-SS and the other in the Armed-SS. ...more on Wikipedia about "Allgemeine-SS"
