  • 3. Re More On Post 9-11 GI Bill R Pos eviiew o Pos v ew o t n Biil t 9--11 n B ll ( 9 11 G (Par Part GII More Question Answered on Post 9-11 GI Bill t 3)) 3 Q: I received disapproval of my Post 9/11 GI BILL TEB request for my spouse/child. Why? A: The NAVADMIN outlining the TEB policy for Post 9/11 GI Bill is forthcoming. -The disapproval of the request is likely due to not meeting the pending OBLISERV requirements for TEB. -Only personnel that have 20 years or more of active duty service are receiving approvals as there is no additional OBLISERV requirement for this specific group. -Personnel that require additional OBLISERV must ensure the OBLISERV reflects in the Electronic Service Record (ESR) prior to receiving approval. Requirement: -Enlisted: OBLISERV must reflect in ESR for EAOS/Soft EAOS -Officers: Require Page 13 agreement to OBLISERV - All personnel must check the ESR prior to submitting a TEB request. **Do not submit request if correct OBLISERV is not reflected in the ESR** Upon release of the NAVADMIN, NPC will update the website and distribute further guidance. Additional transferability reasons for disapproval: - Member did not annotate any months of benefits transferred to family members (i.e. zero months of benefit transferred). - Member did not have required OBLISERV (Enlisted: EAOS insufficient Officer: No Page 13 reflecting in ESR) - Member did not have 6 years of service on the date of request - Member has Fleet Reserve/Retirement date prior to 1 August 2009 Question on GI Bill •What about an E5 at HYT (14 years) and not retirement eligible, are they still eligible to transfer their Post 9-11 GI Bill? Sailors who cannot complete the full four year transferability obligation due to HYT are only required to serve until their HYT date to achieve transferability. They will be able to transfer their benefits to their dependents if they choose without completing the full obligation since Navy policy precludes them from remaining on active duty beyond HYT. Maximize the new GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program means your benefit could be worth more at private colleges When news spread of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, a new GI Bill provision pertaining to private colleges, Columbia’s students and university leadership recognized an opportunity. The new GI Bill’s basic benefit pays for tuition and fees up to a state’s highest in-state tuition at a public university, and there’s a housing stipend equal to the Basic Allowance for Housing for an E-5 with dependents in the school’s ZIP code. To help students who attend more costly private universities, legislators created the Yellow Ribbon Program, which says the Veterans Affairs Department will match any additional amount a school agrees to pay toward a vet’s full costs.

  • 4. From the Bureau to the Counselor: Short Term Extension Keep in mind, if a Sailor is in an overmanned rating and the command is overmanned, it will likely be disapproved. Now if manning is an issue, the request should come to PERS-81 with the reason why an extension is more appropriate than reenlistment or separation. For instance, mbr is intending to separate at PRD or is undecided/wants to negotiate, and manning warrants an extension until a relief is onboard (state that in the request). Basically, extensions are no longer a career option for Sailors in overmanned ratings. Again, separation or reenlistment at EAOS is desired. The whole purpose of this NAVADMIN is to get commitments from Sailors who are career minded. If a Sailor is hanging out for possible career choices (extend to PRD to negotiate means retention only if the Sailor sees desirable orders), that is fine, but overmanned ratings do not have the career option to do a short term extension. Basically, if you are separating, NPC would like the separation at impending EAOS vice delay with a short term extension. This will open up billet's and advancement quota's for those looking to stay Navy and help us reach our manning goals. Again, NPC are not wanting Sailors to separate if they are career minded. As for FLTRES eligible Sailors, we want Sailors to reenlist (if able) or put in their FLTRES request. Once the FLTRES msg of intent is received, then they can extend with local approval to FLTRES date. Keep in mind, PER BUPERSINST 1430.16 Advancement Manual, when FLTRES is HYT date, Sailors are still selection board eligible. This is also stated in bold on our website, under selection boards. Lastly, putting all your personnel in for EAOS to PRD waivers is not desired for overmanned ratings. Encourage your Sailors to reenlist, or you might be causing a lot of unnecessary paperwork because most requests to PRD (if they can reenlist) are being denied. On the other side, encourage all your Sailors in ratings that are not overmanned to do extensions to PRD, in the event their rating becomes overmanned and then they will not have that career choice to do a short term extension. Some Undesignated Sailors May Convert Now Sailors desiring a rating outside of current career track may request conversion to the appropriate apprenticeship if quotas are available (eg. SN-FN, FN-AN). Sailors must receive approval for apprenticeship conversion prior to requesting rating designation in the new apprenticeship career path. With regards to the above paragraph, FOR THIS CYCLE ONLY, the ECM's in Air and Engineering are freeing up some billets for SN to go into those ratings. When using Fleet Ride to submit your applications, FOR THIS CYCLE ONLY, you can apply "out of designation" if the member does qualify for those ratings. After this cycle, apprenticeship conversions will be required to obtain a new career path. Here are some steps that may be required or Sailor can take the Navywide Exam this cycle: 1. If member is requesting an “A” School they must have completed 12 months time on board. 2. If member is requesting a Navy Wide Advancement Exam it CAN NOT be “A” School required. It has to be Approval Required. 3. All Sailors will use their Fleet Ride Qualification sheet to aide in making a decision. They must request a rate that has quotas available. 4. The Sailor has to be qualified for the rate that they are requesting. Requesting a rate that requires a waiver is not recommended. If they do choose a rate that requires a waiver, they can be denied and they will not participate in the NWAE. 5. All documents must be enclosed in request or it will not be processed. 6. The Sailor can request up to three choices and it can be a combination of NWAE and “A” School. Courtesy of Navy Times

  • 6. INQUIRY & ADVICE Questions / Answers Regarding EXTENSION OVERMANNED RATINGS/ZONES Q. Please explain the sentence in paragraph 2 which states “Conditional extensions are authorized for all service members”. A: Conditional extensions are authorized for all service members provided they meet the requirements of current policies. As announced in this message, commanding officers shall not authorize short term extensions of Sailors in overmanned rating zones without a waiver from NAVPERSCOM (PERS-811 foractive/PERS-812 for FTS AGR and CANREC). Q: How long will my waiver request take to process? A: 2 to 3 weeks upon receipt. Waiver requests will be processed as received, with attention given to requests with short-fused EAOS’. Q: How early can I submit my request? A: Nine months prior to EAOS as extended (SEAOS). Q: What if my rate is not on the NAVADMIN? A: If your rate is not on the NAVADMIN, you do not require an NPC waiver. If your rate becomes overmanned, it will be listed on future updates to the list of overmanned ratings and zones which will be posted on the NPC website. At that time you will need an NPC waiver. Q. If I am in an overmanned zone, can I extend my PRD? A: Yes, with your detailer’s approval. This NAVADMIN is addressing conditional extensions of active obligated service and is not related to PRDs. Q: Do I need PTS approval to extend? A: You must have PTS approval (if required by PTS guidelines) prior to submitting your request. Requests submitted without PTS approval will be disapproved. Q: If my waiver is disapproved by NPC then later my rating zone is no longer overmanned, can I extend? A: Yes. You can execute an extension with CO approval. Q: If my waiver is disapproved, am I entitled to involuntary separation entitlements (i.e, PTDY, Sep pay)? A: No. Since you can reenlist and you choose to separate, it is not an involuntary separation Q: Can I extend to my High Year Tenure (HYT)? A: An NPC waiver is required to extend to HYT limits. Q: Does an approved extension waiver also constitute an HYT waiver? A: No, requests for extensions which exceed HYT limits and do not have prior HYT waiver approval will be disapproved. Q: If I am on an IA do I need a waiver? A: Yes. The OBLISERV for your IA orders can be approved by your CO, however additional extensions will require waivers. Q: Can I extend for cruise/deployment? A: No. Per MPM 1160-040, Sailors can extend “To complete a scheduled cruise or deployment, provided the member’s relief is not on board or en route and a projected rotation date (PRD) adjustment has been authorized by the appropriate assignment control authority (ACA).” Your detailer can adjust your PRD to complete a cruise/deployment, then your extension reason will be to match EAOS to PRD. You should also explain why a waiver is appropriate as opposed to reenlisting. Your request “to extend for cruise/deployment” will be returned if your PRD has not been adjusted to coincide with the end of the cruise/deployment. now CC are AIR WING C03-175-1-Q l at ia locatedUSS Nimitz J-D a onb oard Hours 6 Career Wise AUGUST 2009 pen 24 r 6364.

TERM 1 STARTS 3 AUGUST Accreditation & TA For Specialized Training The DoD requires your school to be accredited if you want to receive Tuition Assistance (TA). The accrediting body must be recognized by the Department of Education (DoE). There are training companies that provide specialized training in many different fields including information technology (IT). These companies offer courses that prepare students for a variety of professional IT certification exams. Many of these companies don't qualify for TA because they're not accredited. This doesn't mean the companies are dishonest or the training is ineffective. There are many non-accredited programs that offer good training. Try this web site if you're interested in getting TA for a program but are not sure if it's properly accredited: Want to do an Independent Course online?

Day & Night Shift service available Courtesy of Navy Times to all squadron personnel Advancement Exam Strategies Stop final exam fear in its tracks with these sure-fire tips from Bob Kizlik, a former college professor and developer of the ADPRIMA instructional system and Web site. • A little reconnaissance is a good thing. See what you can do to find out — legally and ethically — what’s on the final exam. What’s past is prologue. Ask the professor if you can see copies of previous final exams. • Be consistent in how you study. • Don’t waste your time. If you don’t function well in study groups, for example, don’t join one to study for your final exam. • Be positive. Your feelings about how you’re going to do on the final actually affect how you do. Don’t go in with fear and trepidation. • Get a good night’s sleep. Pulling an all-nighter before the test is ineffective. • Two final things: Apricot juice and bananas. Kizlik firmly believes that partaking of one these two high- potassium foods just before the exam will give you an edge.
