  JOB ADVERTISEMENT
SELECTION SYSTEM (JASS)

JASS is on a dedicated server (Super JASS)
that allows members to negotiate for orders
with their detailer and only personnel with
command JASS Access will have access to
this system.
                   Why JASS?

  Response to Fleet Requests, JASS is
available in three formats:
  -Web JASS: CCC access, allows CCC to apply and review
  -View only JASS: Member's view, not allowed to submit
applications
  -At-Sea JASS client: Allows CCC to download
  requisitions to stand alone computer to view and
  submit applications to upload and the end of the
  requisition cycle
           Application

Career Counselor actively involved
Can narrow down search for jobs
Can apply for up to 5 choices
Applications within 9 months of PRD
 Homebasing may push PRD Window

Multiple applications for 1 billet
                    Selection
Selections made Second Week
Detailer makes selection based on:
 Needs and desires of the Member
        Promotional needs, special needs, home basing
   Qualifications
        NEC held, paygrade, sea/shore rotation, home
         basing
   Needs of the Navy
        Costs, Operational Commitments,
         Direction from Senior Leadership
                 Follow-up
Week after application
 Check status of applications for your work
  center.
If ineligible:
  Don’t let member put in for the same
    thing again.
Each requisition cycle:
   If not selected for a job, the entire process
    must be completed again.
            Special Cases

Detailers will still handle special cases.
 EFM, HUMS, Spouse Co-location, etc...


Once you are selected for orders, you are
under orders.

If you call your detailer and get a voice mail,
leave a message.
    Reading the Requisition
Codes
   WAS - Shipboard billets for women at sea
 MCA - Bupers, Lantflt, Pacflt

 Pri# - Priority of billet
 NEC - NEC required for that job
 Fill Date - When the job needs to be filled
 UIC - Unit Identification Code

Application Lessons Learned

  Low priority of requisitions being applied
  for...i.e. applying for #45 of 45 reqs...
  Applying for wrong paygrade jobs - i.e. E5 for
  E8, etc.
  Realistic applications - must take into account
  coast to coast costs, NEC reutilization
Application Lessons Learned

Member must still be under orders at the 6
month window

Not a substitute for 1306s; i.e. BUDS training
requests, White House Communications,
TACAMO, Spouse collocation, PRD
adjustments, etc, etc, etc.....
       TEAM DETAILING

Team Detailing was developed and
implemented to revise the Enlisted detailing
process. Currently as a part of the Web
JASS program, Team Detailing gives
command a 15-month outlook of all personnel
assigned to a command who are within their
PRD window.
  TEAM DETAILING CONT.


Detailers corresponding with CCC can
identify any potential problems associated
with detailing process (e.g., Spouse Co-

How FMS Affects Advancement
 If your FMS is at or above the cutoff, you will
 be advanced
 Unfortunately, not all will have an FMS high
 enough to be advanced. For example:

    If the FMS cutoff for selection is:           168.22
    But your FMS is:                              168.18
      You will not be selected for advancement
 (But, there’s some good news: If you earn PNA
 points, they will be added to your FMS for the next
 exam.)
Performance Mark Average
                   (PMA)
         How is PMA calculated?
Evaluations/FITREPs used for candidates:

   E-4 - As per NAVADMIN (past 8 or 9 mos)
   E-5 - As per NAVADMIN (past 14 or 15 mos)
   E-6/7 - The past 36 months

Only the advancement recommendation
(block 45) of the evaluation is used to
compute the PMA.

    *These values are approximations based on individual’s
      average.
     PNA Points?!!?
What are they and how are
    they determined?
Passed-not-advanced points come from
            two sources:
 Final Exam Standard Score (SS)
 Performance Mark Average (PMA)
PNA Points Computation
PNA points are determined using PMA and SS
 Up to 1.5 points can be awarded for both PMA and
 SS per exam cycle. (accumulating a maximum of 3.0
 per exam)

 However, a NAVADMIN recently placed more
 emphasis on PNA:

   Directed that the total PNA for the last 5 of the most recent
   exam cycles be multiplied by 2.
   E-4/5/6 can now accumulate a maximum of 30 FMS points
   for the last 5 of the most recent exam cycles.
PNA Points Computation for
           PMA
              Performance Mark Average

              Top 25%:       1.5 PNA points
              Next 25%:      1.0 PNA points
              Next 25%:      0.5 PNA points


 Performance Mark Averages are calculated for all candidates
 taking the exam.
 Then PNA points are awarded for one’s performance based on
 how the candidates rank among themselves.
  What happens if I have a
       discrepancy?

Your PSD, ESO, or command has
instructions on how to correct the
discrepancy.
  The information in your service record
  should be re-verified along with the
  Enlisted Master File, and
  A message or letter with documentation
  sent to NETPDTC to correct the
  discrepancies.
        “How do I prevent
         discrepancies?”

  MAKE SURE YOUR INFORMATION IS
             CORRECT !

On your worksheet:
  Verify your examination worksheet information is correct
  before you sign it, or have it corrected by PSD or ESO
  before it goes forward.


On your exam:
  Verify the information you put on your examination answer
  sheet is correct and the circles are darkened in correctly.

   Permanent disability or transferred from
     TDRL
        Disability Retired Pay

TWO METHODS (Art. 7220-050)
 Length of Service Method:
     .025 x BP x YAS = DRP (DTC)
     Constructive service not credible
 Percentage Method:
     % of disability x BP = DRP (DTC)
     TDRL pays minimum of 50%-75%
     PDRL pays 30% - 75%
 Rounding Rule:
     Example: 11yrs, 6 mo -- Round up to 12 yrs
          Sample problem???
  E6 with 15 yrs 5 mos for pay is being
  considered for transfer to TDRL w/ disability
  rating of 37%
  1. What would he receive using the %
  method?
- % of Disability x BP = DRP (DTC)
     E6/15 = BP $2499.30
     .37 X $2499.30 = $924
 2. LOS method?
- .025 X BP X YAS = DRP (DTC)
     .025 X $2499.30 X 15 = $937
      Disability Severance Pay
Definition: Disability <30% lump sum payment.
Eligibility:
   No willful neglect or misconduct
   Once disability paid for 10 years, cannot be cancelled
   Once Vocational Rehabilitation started (school) cannot
    be cancelled.
Computing:
   2 mo BP x YAS (Max 12) = DSP (KTC)
   Constructive time does not count
   Use YAS rounding rule
Disadvantage: No medical or retirement benefits
 COMPUTE Severance Pay

E6 with 15 yrs 5 mos for pay is being
considered for transfer to TDRL w/ disability
rating of 37%.

2 mos BP X YAS (MAX 12) = DSP (KTC)

- $2499.30 X 2 X 12 = $59,983.20
 Consumer Price Index (CPI)
Determined by cost of living increases
(Federal Government).

Do not confuse retired COLA with overseas
COLA.

Huge benefit to those receiving retainer pay.

Those who enlisted or commissioned after
1 AUG 86 receive CPI - 1%.

        Definition of SBP

When a military retiree dies, their retirement
pay stops. The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) is
a voluntary program which allows a military
retiree to provide an annuity of up to 55% of
their gross retired pay to their eligible
designated beneficiary(ies).
  Basic Mechanics of SBP

The “base amount,” which is the dollar
amount upon which the annuity will be
based is elected by the retiree at the time
of retirement. This amount may range
from $300 up to retiree’s full gross retired
pay.
The monthly payable annuity and
premiums are based on this base amount.
Service Member Eligibility


Sailors currently on active duty are
automatically covered by SBP at the
maximum level.
The Reserve Component Survivor Benefit
Plan (RCSBP), is available for members of
the Naval Reserve.
 Service Member Eligibility



Retirement or transfer to the Fleet Reserve or
 TDRL AND PDRL or Death in line-of-duty
Categories of Coverage

    Spouse Only
    Spouse and Child(ren)
    Child(ren) Only
    Former Spouse
    Former Spouse and Child(ren)
    Natural Person with Insurable
    Interest (NIP)
   Spouse/Former Spouse
    & Children Coverage

Premium and annuity costs are the same as
coverage for spouse or former spouse and
children.
         Former Spouse

Retiree’s may voluntarily elect SBP coverage
for former spouses.
State courts are permitted to order member’s
to provide former spouse coverage for court-
orders issued on or after 14 Nov 1986.
Former spouses are also ineligible if they
remarry prior to age 55.
    Former Spouse cont…

If a member divorces after retirement the
marriage must have lasted at least one year
to establish eligibility
Former spouse elections are permanent and
irrevocable, with a few exceptions (i.e., retiree
obtains a new court order allowing coverage
of the new spouse). Always consult a
competent attorney.
Spouse/Former Spouse Only
        Coverage
Widow(er) married to the retiree at
retirement, or at least one year prior to the
retiree’s death.
Automatic coverage for any future spouse
unless the retiree specifically declines to
resume coverage within one-year of
remarriage
  new spouse not required to concur, but
   they are notified.
  Spouse Coverage cont…

Receives annuity for life or until remarriage, if
prior to age 55.
If remarriage later ends (i.e. death, or
divorce), entitlement may be restored.
Remarriage after 55 does not terminate
entitlement.
Spouse Only Coverage cont…


Annuity is 55% of the “base amount” elected
by the retiree until age 62.
At age 62, annuity is reduced to no less than
35% in conjunction with the spouse’s
entitlement to Social Security benefits.
 Children/Spouse Coverage

Coverage for child(ren) if there is no surviving
spouse, or if the spouse passes away or
remarries prior to age 55.

Payment will be made to eligible child(ren) as
if the member had elected “Children Only”
coverage.
   Children only Coverage

Annuity to eligible child(ren) if elected. If
married, spouse concurrence with the
“Child(ren) Only” election is required
Remain eligible until age 18, or 22 if full-time
unmarried students
Children incapable of support are eligible as
long as incapacitation exists or until marriage.
Children Only Coverage cont..

 Annuities are 55% of retiree’s “base amount”
 as long as eligible
 not reduced because of concurrent
 Government benefits
 Equally divided among eligible children
 Payment made to parent or guardian until
 age 18, or age of maturity
Children Only Coverage cont…

 A retiree with:
  No dependent children at retirement may
    add children later, but must be added
    within one year of birth or adoption.
  Dependent children at retirement who
    declined to cover them may do so later, but
    only under special conditions (Open
    Enrollment periods)
Natural Person with Insurable
        Interest (NIP)

 Allows retirees without a spouse or
 dependent child(ren) to elect coverage for a
 person who has a bona fide financial interest
   Need not be a dependant

   May be a close relative, a child, or a close
    business associate.
Persons with Insurable Interest
 The payable annuity is 55% of retiree’s full
 retired pay after the premium cost is
 deducted. Members are not permitted to elect
 reduced base amount.
 There is no offset for other Government
 benefits to which the annuitant is entitled.
 A retiree may terminate insurable interest
 coverage at any time.
 If retiree marries, they may elect to enroll a
 new spouse and/or child(ren).
Insurable Interest Premiums

Premiums are 10% of the retiree’s gross
retired pay, plus an additional 5% for each
five full years the annuitant is younger than
the retiree.
Premium costs cannot exceed 40% of the
member’s gross retired pay.
    Social Security Offset

SBP guarantees survivors will receive income
equal to 55% of retiree’s elected base
amount up to age 62.
While an annuitant is under age 62, the
benefit is provided by SBP only. After age 62,
it is a combination of SBP and Social Security
benefits as a result of the government paying
a portion of the cost for both SBP and Social
Security.
      COLA Adjustments

SBP annuities and premiums are adjusted at
the same time and the same percentage as
retired pay.
This benefit protects the purchasing power of
the survivor’s annuity.
         Benefits of SBP

SBP is the only means by which a portion of
retired pay can be continued for eligible
survivors.
The premiums are tax-free and the annuity is
COLA-adjusted to protect future buying
power.
Eligibility is not dependent on risk factors
such as age or health.
         Benefits of SBP

There are no hidden costs or extra fees.
The annuity continues for the life of the
beneficiary as long as they remain eligible
