Official Space "A" Information

SPACE “A” AIR TRAVEL The 1-year test to expand space-available travel to family members of active-duty and retired service members traveling within the continental United States has been extended until further notice.  This does not apply to "grey-area retirees" who are retired but not yet eligible for retired pay and benefits.  Family members are able to travel space-A aboard military flights when accompanied by their sponsors.  To register for space-A travel, active-duty sponsors must be on leave or a pass and remain in the status while awaiting travel and through the entire travel period.

JOB PLACEMENT FOR USAR SPOUSES

Officials in the Defense Department of Reserve Affairs recently signed an agreement with ADECCO, a staffing and human resources company, to expand the number and types of jobs available to spouses of Reservists.

The program is unique because it is not just for spouses of activated reservists; it is aimed at all Reserve personnel. There are currently pilot versions of the new program operating in San Diego and Annapolis; however, ADECCO's services are available at branches worldwide at no charge to military families.

For more information, contact Erin Walerko, program Director for the Adecco Career Accelerator program at 732/676-0261 or erin.walerko@adeccona.com. [Source: FRA News-Bytes 30 Jan 04]

 

COMPENSATION FOR R&R EXPENSES

Service members who paid for their own stateside travel last fall when participating in the U.S. Central Command's rest and recuperation leave program should start gathering their receipts, because President Bush has signed a law allowing retroactive reimbursement of expenses. Up to 38,000 troops are eligible for retroactive reimbursement. The Defense Department now must draw up regulations explaining exactly who is eligible and how they will get the money.

 

FEDERAL LONG TERM CARE FOR "GREY AREA" RESERVISTS 

The National Defense Authorization Act for 2004 adds three groups and their qualified relatives as eligible to apply for the Federal Long Term Care (LTC) Insurance Program.  This includes retired "grey area" reservists, not in receipt of retired pay.  For details, see www.ltcfeds.com.
