Some of these members – the men and women of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps – received good news with the recent adoption of the Continuous Resolution (CR). While Congress is still unable to reach agreement on a budget, the CR has a glimmer of hope. The cosvid-19 environment was difficult for uniformed service members, especially the uniformed medical community that worked in a war position against the pandemic. Members of the USPHS Commissioned Corps had not been able to extend the accumulated leave without a change in the law, unlike those of the DoD, NOAA, the Coast Guard and the civilian staff of the Federal War. Other services were able to extend the leave from 60 to 120 days until September 30, 2023, with a change in policy. A provision of the CR referred to by the Commissioned Officers Association of the U.S. Public Health Service (COA) temporarily changes the USPHS vacation policy and allows these members to enjoy more than 60 days of leave with the same 2023 expiry date as other services. Pension obligation: – The retirement salary is now served by the U.S. Coast Guard – The retiree`s salary takes 60-90 days after retirement. free www.uscg.mil/ppc/ras/: 1-866-772-8724 Fax: 785-339-3770 psc-dg-ras@uscg.mil Lump Sum Leave (LSL) Payment: LSL audits for determining solvent final vacation credits are now conducted by the Corps Agency Liaisons Delegate and the Leave Coordinator within the Human Resources Management and Career Management Service.

Coast Guard Pay and Personnel Center (USCG) in Topeka, KS, is the duty pay office for the salaries of retired Public Health Officers (PHS) and their survivors. Questions about retirement through pension accounts should be directed to the USCG. Although the COVID-19 fight is ongoing, there are glimmers of hope for our uniformed medical community. MOAA and the TMC will continue to stand up for those who fight for us. When the bill met, the Military Coalition (TMC) – groups representing more than 5.5 million uniformed soldiers, veterans and their families and survivors – sent a letter to the chairs and senior officials of the House of Representatives and Senate appropriation committees calling on Congress to correct this injustice. MOAA is a member of the Military Coalition, currently by collar.
