Annual Reminder for Scheduling "Use or Lose" Annual Leave

"Use or lose" annual leave is the amount of accrued annual leave that is in excess of the employee's maximum annual leave limitation 30 days (240 hours for most employees) for carry over into the next leave year. Employees must use their excess annual leave by the end of the current leave year, 7 January 2017, or it will be subject to forfeiture.

Please be mindful that if leave was not scheduled and approved in writing by 26 November 2016, it is subject to forfeiture. Any leave forfeited will not be eligible for consideration of restoration unless it was scheduled and approved for use prior to 26 November 2016, even if such leave was not intended to be used until after 26 November 2016. All supervisors and employees are encouraged to work together to ensure that use or lose is scheduled and used or donated to the maximum extent practicable to avoid forfeiture.

Annual leave maybe restored which was forfeited due to an exigency of the public business or sickness of the employee only if the annual leave was scheduled in writing before the start of the third biweekly pay period prior to the end of the leave year (26 November 2016).

Employees who wish to donate use/lose annual leave under the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program at the end of the leave year, may donate no more than the number of hours remaining in the leave year for which they are scheduled to work and receive pay (as of the date the leave donor form is signed). For more information on the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program, please contact Mr. George Martinez at x1187 or gcmartin@nps.edu

 


Civilian Benefits Guide to the 2016 Federal Benefits Open Season

1. This is the third message published regarding the upcoming Benefits Open Season beginning 14 November and ending 12 December 2016. You can find the first two Open Season messages here (CAC/Email certificate log-in requred).

2. The Civilian Benefits Guide to the 2016 Federal Benefits Open Season has important information regarding actions to take before, during and after the Open Season. The Guide is available on the Office of Civilian Human Resources (OCHR) Portal. To access the OCHR Portal, you must use a government computer; have a ".mil, .edu, or .gov" email address and a Department of Defense Common Access Card. If prompted, select your email certificate. If this is your first time accessing the OCHR Portal, you will be required to complete a simple registration.

3. If you have questions about the Benefits Open Season or how to access your Employee Benefits Information System (EBIS) account, please call the Benefits Line at 888-320-2917 from 7:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday - Friday, except on Federal holidays. The TTY number is 866-359-5277. Because call volume is typically high during the open season period (14 November - 12 December), you may experience a longer than normal call wait time when attempting to reach the Benefits Line. The best time to call is before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Your patience is appreciated.

Another way to reach the Benefits Line is to email your questions to navybenefits@navy.mil. You must include your full name, pay plan, grade, contact telephone number and the best time to call.

Federal Benefits Open Season: 14 Nov–12 Dec 2016

1. This is the second message published to prepare you for the upcoming Federal Benefits Open Season. The first message entitled "Health, Dental and Vision Insurance Premiums for 2017" is available on the Office of Civilian Human Resources (OCHR) portal here. On average, the Civilian Benefits Center (CBC) receives 14,000 health insurance elections during the open season. This is also the same time of the year that employees make changes to their Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) contributions or elect to make TSP Catch-up Contributions for the 2017 tax year.

2. Now is the time to take the appropriate steps to be ready:

a. Accessing Employee Benefits Information System (EBIS). EBIS is a self-service Web application that allows you to independently make your health insurance and TSP elections without the assistance of a Customer Service Representative. Since your EBIS password expires every 60 days, you may need to reset it before the start of the open season. Information about how to establish your EBIS account is available on the OCHR portal here. In order to access EBIS, you must use a government computer; have a ".mil, .edu or .gov" email address and a Department of Defense Common Access Card. When prompted, select your email certificate. If this is your first time accessing the Web site, you will be required to complete a simple registration.

b. Open season Information. As information is received, it will be posted to the portal here. Health insurance plan brochures will be available in early November. You are encouraged to read the information that is received via mail or email from your current health provider as they are required to provide plan changes that will occur in the next benefit year. The CBC cannot advise you on which health insurance plan is best suited for you; this is a decision you must make after reviewing the plans.

3. If you need assistance accessing your EBIS account, please call the Benefits Line at 888-320-2917 from 7:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday - Friday, except on Federal holidays. The TTY number is 866-359-5277. Because call volume is typically high during the open season period (14 November - 12 December), you may experience a longer than normal call wait time when attempting to reach the Benefits Line. The best time to call is before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Your patience is appreciated.

Another way to reach the Benefits Line is to email your questions to navybenefits@navy.mil. You must include your full name, pay plan, grade, contact telephone number and the best time to call. Please do not include Privacy Act or other Personally Identifiable Information such as date of birth or Social Security number in your email correspondence.

Interim Guidance on Authority to Prepay Costs of Emergency Health Care Abroad

1. In accordance with reference (a), enclosure (1) provides interim implementing guidance for prepayment and recovering costs of prepaid emergency health care throughout the Department of the Navy (DON). The DON interim procedures further delegate this authority to the Heads of Echelon 2 Commands and the Commandant of the United States Marine Corps.

2. The health and welfare of our DON workforce and their authorized dependents while in the performance of official duties outside of the United States, its Territories and Possessions is of the utmost importance. While U.S. military medical treatment facilities and previously negotiated contracts with national (non-U.S.) or North Atlantic Treaty Organization run health facilities are the preferred provider for DON employees traveling outside of the U.S., situations may arise in which emergency care must be rendered at a local private medical clinic. Some local medical clinics require cash payment prior to the treatment or release of a patient. Enclosure (1) authorizes Echelon 2 Commanders or their designee to prepay costs associated with emergency medical care of their employees abroad.

3. All prepayments for the purpose of emergency health care are made to the employee through reimbursable loans. Employees must sign a debt acknowledgement and repayment agreement for the total costs prepaid by DON on their or their dependent's behalf.

4. Questions regarding this and other benefits policies can be directed to the DON Benefits Line at 1-888-320-2917 or navybenefits@navy.mil.
