Proposal to Renew Policy on Supplement to Military Pay

Re: 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, 2008, through June 30, 2010.

Under the current policy, the University compensates eligible employees for the difference between their University base pay and military pay and allowances until the end of an employee’s active military duty or until June 30, 2008, 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 are those who serve on active military duty during Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Noble Eagle (the anti-terrorism and homeland defense campaigns), Operation Iraqi Freedom, or any other active military duty associated with the national state of emergency declared in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Employees who are not eligible for supplemental pay because their military pay and allowances exceed their University wages may elect to continue their 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 are available in Related Information. 

As with all formal reviews, comments from employees are encouraged and will be forwarded to the Office of the President for consideration before a final decision is announced. Comments from the campus should be directed to Lazetta Smith at lazetta@chr.ucla.edu or from the medical center and healthcare facilities to Judith Wong at jkwong@mednet.ucla.edu by May 23, 2008.

Sincerely,
