IN THE MATTER OF: DOCKET NUMBER: BC-2002-03011-2
INDEX CODE: 137.04
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
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
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.
