UC proposes renewing policy to supplement military pay
UC's policy on supplement to military pay is scheduled to end on June 30, 2014. It is the University's desire to continue to provide reasonable assistance to academic and staff personnel who are called to active military duty in the Overseas Operations Contingency campaign. The proposed revisions renew the policy for another four-year period, effective July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2018.
Under the 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, 2014, while on active military duty in the Overseas Operations Contingency campaign.
In addition, while employees receive the military pay supplement, the University continues to pay the UC contribution to their health plan premiums. For employees who are not eligible for the supplement to military pay because their military pay exceeds their University wages, and who elect to continue their University plan coverage, the University pays the UC contribution to health plan premiums. Benefits under the Policy are subject to a two-year lifetime limit.
The revised policy reflecting the proposed four-year renewal is posted at: http://ucop.edu/human-resources/_files/psmp-draft.pdf.
Employees who wish to provide comments on this policy may submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 10, 2014.
