CG-2020D Designation of Beneficiaries

Designation of Persons Authorized to Direct Disposition of Remains

Per the National Defense Authorization Act 2012 signed by the President on 31 Dec, the "Designation of Persons Authorized to Direct Disposition of Remains of Members of the Armed Services" (PADD) is now a "member-designated" benefit. As outlined in ALCOAST 427/08 only spouse, adult child, parent or adult sibling were allowed to be designated. If none were known or alive then any relative may have been designated, or finally, a close friend. The new law allows members to designate any person of choice.

No one is required to change any PADD designation as a result of the change in law or to update their form CG-2020D at this time. Existing PADD designations for someone other than a relative--which actually should not have been accepted at the time--will now be acceptable, no update needed. The change supports every Coast Guard member who has reason to designate a PADD other than a relative.

The Personnel Service Center (PSC) is in the process of updating the designation form and will be promulgating an ALCOAST once the revised form is approved.

Note: If a member has a spouse but designates a person other than the spouse to receive all or a portion of the death gratuity pay, the member's Commanding Officer is required to notify the spouse, in writing, about the designation. Here is a template (in MS Word format) for the Memo to notify the member's spouse.

    General Residency Rules: The general rule is that legal residency is established when an individual is physically present in a state AND has the intent to permanently reside in the state.

    "Intention to permanently reside" can be shown through a combination of several factors: ownership of real property; registering to vote; registering a vehicle; obtaining a driver's license; and declaring of legal residency on legal documents (including DD Form 2058: State of Legal Residence Certificate). One of these factors by itself would probably not be enough to change residency, but if a service member moved to a state and registered to vote, bought a house, registered her car, obtained a new driver's license, and registered her children in the local schools, she would most likely be considered to be a resident of the new state. For example, if you were a legal resident of Delaware when you entered the Armed Forces, you remain a legal resident of Delaware for Delaware state income tax purposes unless you voluntarily abandoned your Delaware residency and established a new legal domicile in another state. A change in legal residence is documented by filing DD Form 2058 with your military personnel office.

    Note;: Revision date 10/17. Please be sure to always use the most recent revision when completing new elections or changing beneficiary designations. Elections and designations completed using earlier editions of the SGLV-8286 remain valid. Members do not need to complete a new form if there are no changes to their elections or beneficiary designations.

  • SGLV-8286A,  Link to VA Site: SGLI Family Coverage Election and other FSGLI forms.

    Note: Per E-Mail ALSPO B/16, this form is only to be completed when a member is reducing coverage, declining coverage, increasing coverage, restoring coverage, or applying for coverage when member-married-to-member. This form is not required when a member, who is subject to automatic coverage, accepts the automatic coverage. 

    The form is not intended for use during annual validation or PCS reporting in where the purpose is to “continue” or “validate” previously existing coverage.  Completing the form unnecessarily during these circumstances creates confusion and frequently causes OSGLI to mistakenly deny coverage under the assumption that the member is applying for previously declined or reduced spouse coverage.

  • More SGLI and VGLI Forms

    The health-related questions (SGLV-8286, Item 4, About Your Health or SGLV-8286A, Part III - Spouse Information) on the forms are only required to be completed when the member has previously declined coverage or elected coverage for a reduced amount and wants to reinstate or increase coverage. Please refer Chapter 5, Section A, of the Personnel and Pay Procedures Manual, for additional information on completing forms SGLV-8286 and SGLV-8286A.

Lump Sum Leave Sale Overview

If member has reserve AD orders of exactly 30 days, DA does not credit 2.5 days of leave, therefore the SPO will need to submit a ticket to PPC to manually credit. Also, if a member has back to back consecutive reserve AD orders, where each order is less than 30 days individually, but combined consecutively equal 30 days, the SPO will also need to submit a ticket for PPC to manually credit leave. 

Use the Leave Actions template (from https://www.dcms.uscg.mil/ppc/mas/#leaveaction) for submitting tickets.
