MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION
SUBJECT: Hostile Fire Pay for Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) Employees



Hostile fire pay was authorized for NAF employees in accordance with the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Force Management Policy, memorandum of March 27. The effective date of this authority is September 11, 2001.

Therefore, in accordance with this authority, NAF civilian employees who were at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, in an official duty capacity, from the time of the attack until 2400 hours, are entitled to hostile fire pay following the administratively extended provisions of 5 USC section 5949 and criteria established for payment to military personnel. For purposes of this entitlement, "at the Pentagon" means the Pentagon building proper and the adjoining parking lots, and child care center, but not the Pentagon's visitor's parking lot located across from the Macy's department store.

A memorandum identifying the NAF employees to receive hostile fire pay must be signed by a supervisor authorized to certify time and attendance cards, and sent thru the appropriate MWR director, or equivalent, to the servicing personnel office for payment. The director certifies that the employees meet the criteria for payment. The name of the employees, social security numbers, standard NAFI numbers, the location, i.e., the Pentagon, the month and year of the event, and the amount authorized are to be included.

The authority to pay hostile fire pay is a continuing authority and does not end with the events at the Pentagon and World Trade Towers on September 11, 2001. Hostile fire payments are made on a monthly basis. If employees are subject to hostile fire twice in one month, they only receive one $150 payment. Civilian employees who were hospitalized past Sept. 30 because of the attacks are eligible for additional payments of $150 per month for up to three months. Survivors of employees who are killed as a result of hostile action are eligible to receive hostile fire pay, as well.
