UC Proposal to Renew Policy on Supplement to Military Pay

The Office of the President is proposing to renew the University's Policy on Supplement to Military Pay for a two-year period, effective July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2012.

Under the current policy, the University provides eligible employees with supplemental payments equal to the difference between the employees' University base pay and their military pay and allowances until the end of an employee's active military duty, or until June 30, 2010, whichever comes first. The University also continues to pay the UC contribution to employees' health plan premiums while an employee is eligible for benefits under the policy. Benefits provided under the policy are subject to a two-year lifetime limit.

Eligible employees under the Policy on Supplement to Military Pay are those who serve on active military duty during the Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Noble Eagle, and Operation Iraqi Freedom campaigns, and any other campaigns in connection with the national state of emergency declared in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Employees who are not eligible for supplemental payments because their military pay and allowances exceed their University wages may elect to continue UC health plan coverage while on military leave, and the University will continue to pay the UC contribution to those plans.

Revised Implementation Guidelines and Extended Military Leave Q&A's reflecting the proposed two-year extension will be posted on At Your Service.

Because this is a formal policy review, comments from employees are encouraged. Comments may be sent to Lazetta Smith in Campus Human Resources at lazetta@chr.ucla.edu or to Maure Gardner, Health System Human Resources at mgardner@mednet.ucla.edu by Friday, June 11, 2010.
