Leave on Separation Orders

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

Remember to only use the leave type of "Terminal Leave" when completing separation orders in Direct Access. If the regular leave type is used it will not shut down entitlements and causes other problems with the transaction.   

Also, remember SPOs MUST manually stop Career Sea Pay, Career Sea Pay Premium and OUTCONUS COLA upon the member' departure from the unit on Terminal Leave (with no intention to return) to prevent overpayments.

More Separations Reminders:

  • Do not put leave to sell in the carry forward block. Direct Access will sell all available leave upon separation processing. There is no "leave to sell" block. The carry forward block is only used for members continuing on another active duty contract with less than 24 hours break in service and for reserve component members being released from active duty.
  • Approve separations as soon as complete and not later than two days prior to the SPO Data Entry / Approval cutoff for the pay period of the separation. You can approve separations right up to the SPO Data Entry / Approval cutoff, but two days prior is preferred. Do not approve separations during the "blackout" period between the SPO Data Entry / Approval cutoff and "Payroll finalized Date" unless requested to do so by PPC.
