The scheduled reactivation of full access to orders in Direct Access is 0001 EST, Wednesday, 19 January 2022, and is based on the successful conversion of all FY22 orders. This lockdown is necessary to support the deployment of FSMS. During this period of read-only availability, all FY22 orders will be converted to utilize FSMS accounting data. This applies to all Direct Access orders types: ETQC, PCS, separations, and reserve orders. Units may issue orders via memorandum to authorize travel in urgent and emergency situations.

2. Vouchering: The ability to enter travel vouchers in ETS is now available.

3. Vouchering prior FY travel: As part of the cutover to FSMS, the Coast Guard migrated open travel obligations. Authorizations will appear in ETS for the member to voucher. Members will select the open authorization within ETS and create a voucher. Members will not need to select accounting information for the Project, Organization, Expenditure and Task (POET) because prior year TONOs were migrated to reimburse against the prior year expenditures. The vouchers should only require approval from an ETS approving official.

4. Current FY Travel: Please be aware that Training, PCS, and Reserve Orders from Direct-Access (DA) will not be available in ETS pending completion of the accounting data conversion during the DA outage described above.

Defense Department Announces Cost of Living Increase to Retired Pay

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

 The Department of Defense announced annual cost of living adjustments that will benefit military retirees and survivors during calendar year 2022.  Most military retirees will receive a 5.9 percent increase to their retired pay beginning with the pay they receive on January 1, 2022, which is the largest such increase since 1982.  Likewise, survivors of members who died on active or inactive duty, or survivors of military retirees who participated in the Survivor Benefit Plan will, in most cases, see a 5.9 percent increase to their annuities beginning in January.  

               Survivors who are eligible for the Special Survivor Indemnity Allowance (SSIA) will also receive an increase to their SSIA payments that reflects this 5.9 percent adjustment.  The maximum amount of SSIA payable will be $346 beginning in January, although some survivors may receive less in SSIA as the Department of Defense continues to implement the phased reduction in the Survivor Benefit Plan – Dependency and Indemnity Compensation offset, as enacted by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020.

These cost of living adjustments are calculated based on the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers for the four quarters ending with the third calendar quarter of 2021 (July, August, and September 2021), and generally go into effect for all pay received beginning in January 2022.

               Those military retirees who retired during calendar year 2021, and all military retirees who retired under the REDUX retirement system, may receive a slightly different annual cost of living adjustment.   The complete list of updates to military retired and retainer pay, and survivor annuities, allowances, and premiums can be found at https://www,dcms.uscg.mil/ppc/ras/cola/.
