Pay & Personnel News Updates from our Branches

Known-Issue: Direct-Access Data Entry of Reserve Maternity Compensation IDT Credit.


ALCOAST 140/22  announced the implementation of a maternity absence policy for new mothers. There will not be a separate Duty Status category in Direct Access (DA) for maternity absence – it is IDT; however, we are working to add a “Maternity Absence” Duty Purpose in DA.  Until that is added, commands should use the MED Duty Purpose. Please be aware the Duty Purpose appears differently if you enter drills individually or as a batch.  There are two different length Duty Purpose Descriptions for each Duty Purpose Code.  For the MED Purpose Code. They are:

Duty Purpose Code

Duty Purpose Short Title

Duty Purpose Long Title




“Medical” and “RMP – MEDICAL OTHER THAN PHA” are the same duty purpose.  We are working with the programmers to update the current long titles (i.e., remove “RMP” in the long titles) and create a “Maternity Absence” Duty Purpose.  Until DA is updated, please have members use the appropriate Duty Purpose depending on how the drills are entered in DA.
