ADDENDUM TO RECORD OF PROCEEDINGS AIR FORCE BOARD FOR CORRECTION OF MILITARY RECORDS IN THE MATTER OF: DOCKET NUMBER: BC-2002-03011-2 INDEX CODE: 137.04 COUNSEL: NONE HEARING DESIRED: NO _________________________________________________________________ APPLICANT REQUESTS THAT: Corrective action be taken that would permit him to increase his base amount under the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) from a reduced level of retired pay to full coverage and a full waiver of indebtedness created by such. He has agreed to pay the buy-in required for him to increase his base amount. _________________________________________________________________ STATEMENT OF FACTS On 18 October 2006, the Board considered and denied his application for correction of military records pertaining to subject applicant. However, the Board agreed to reconsider his case should he agree to pay the buy-in for such action. For an accounting of the facts and circumstances surrounding the applicant’s request and the rationale of the earlier decision by the Board, see the Record of Proceedings at Exhibit D. In a letter dated, 25 October 2006, the applicant indicates that he agrees to pay the buy-in but is petitioning the Board to limit the buy-in to the principle amount and not include interest on same. Applicant’s complete submission is at Exhibit E. _________________________________________________________________ THE BOARD CONCLUDES THAT: We note the applicant’s willingness to pay the buy-in required to increase his SBP base amount from a reduced level of retired pay to full coverage. His request that the buy-in amount be principle only and not include interest requires no action on our part as the buy-in does not include interest accrued over time. Inasmuch as the Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) recommended his application be approved should he indicate his willingness to pay the required buy-in amount we agree with the OPR and therefore recommend his record be corrected as recommended below. _________________________________________________________________ THE BOARD RECOMMENDS THAT: The pertinent military records of the Department of the Air Force relating to applicant be corrected to show that on 31 August 1988, he elected spouse and child Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) coverage based on full retired pay. _________________________________________________________________ The following members of the Board considered this application in Executive Session on 12 December 2006, under the provisions of AFI 36-2603: Mr. Michael K.
