Here’s a brief update on FY19 special pays from BUMED:
Ladies and Gentleman, appreciate if you could please get the word out to your Corps. The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs [ASD(HA)] pay plan was signed on 26 Sep 2018, but the Navy Pay Guidance has not been signed. Any special pays requests effective 1 Oct 2018 or later cannot be submitted until the Navy’s Special Pays NAVADMIN has been released, which is not expected until possibly sometime in December 2018.

I’ve been sharing personal finance articles on Friday, most of which came from the other blog I wrote on called Military Millions. Last week we decided to shut it down. As a result, I’ll start sharing some of my own writing as well as other articles I find that are particularly relevant to the readers of MCCareer.org. Enjoy!

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (NNS) — NAVSUP is asking Sailors performing a Personally Procured Move (PPM) during October through December 2018 to be aware of potential impacts to the PPM overall process – from advance payment request to claims settlement.
The software used to validate, reconcile, and authorize payment for Sailors’ PPMs will be upgraded in December 2018. Settlement of PPM claims submitted for reimbursement during November and December may be delayed due to the system being taken offline. All PPM packages submitted will be prioritized based upon the date received and processed accordingly once the system comes back online.
Claim submission scenarios and more details are available online at https://www.navsup.navy.mil/public/navsup/hhg/time_to_move/ppm/.
For questions specific to your individual claim, call 888-742-4467.
Headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, and employing a diverse, worldwide workforce of more than 22,500 military and civilian personnel, NAVSUP’s mission is to provide supplies, services, and quality-of-life support to the Navy and joint warfighter.

Every year after the promotion boards I do a major update of my Promo Prep document. I update images and statistics, check links, and update the appendices. I also add new things, like the reappearance of photos at promotion boards.
I am happy to tell you that the 2019 version is done, and the most recent version of the Officer Record Management Document is posted as well. Both can be found on the Joel Schofer’s Promo Prep page. If you haven’t started updating your record for next year’s promotion boards, you need to start now. It takes a few months.
As always, if you find any issues with the document, contact me.
