MEMORANDUM FOR ALL STAFF AND OPERATING CIVILIAN PERSONNEL OFFICES
SUBJECT: STAFFING BULLETIN - Benefits for Non-Permanent and Less-Than-Full-Time Employees

1. Purpose: To forward consolidated information about benefits for non-permanent and less-than-full-time employees for use during interviews and in-processing.

2. References:

  1. Federal Personnel Manual (FPM) Chapter 316, Non-Permanent Employment
  2. FPM Supplement 830-1, CSRS and FERS Handbook for Personnel and Payroll Office
  3. FPM Supplement 870-1, Life Insurance
  4. FPM Supplement 870-1, Federal Employees Health Benefits
  5. FPM Chapter 550, Severance Pay
3. Future employment on non-permanent and less-than-full-time help within Department of Defense can be expected to increase due to base closures, major restructuring, and creation of the Defense Business Operating Fund. Definite rules govern the use (reference a) and entitlements (references a through e) of non-permanent and less-than-full-time employees. It is imperative that these employees understand and agree to these provisions prior to actually entering duty.

4. Attachment 1 shows employees' eligibility for benefits based on their appointment and work schedule, along with a description of each benefit. Such information should be distributed during interviews and in-processing to better educate the applicant on entitlements. Regulations governing benefits are complex and fraught with exceptions. Coverage questions which cannot be answered locally can be forwarded to
U.S. Total Army Personnel Command,
ATTN: TAPC-CPF-O,
200 Stovall Street,
Alexandria, VA 22332-0320.
Also a suggested memorandum of understanding has been added (attachment 2) for your possible use during in-processing.
