Policy on Supplement to Military Pay
The University of California would like to continue to assist to the extent possible those University academic and staff personnel who are serving on active military duty during Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Noble Eagle (the anti-terrorism and homeland defense campaigns), or any other active military duty meant to support the President's call for a war on terrorism as a result of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Effective immediately, the University will provide to eligible employees supplemental payments equal to the difference between the employees' University base pay and their military pay and allowances and will continue the UC contribution to health plan premiums until the end of the employees' active military commitment or until the end of the 2004-05 fiscal year, whichever comes first. Some employees are not eligible for the supplemental payments because their military pay exceeds their University wages. However, the University will pay the UC contribution for those employees who wish to continue their health plan coverage.
The University's implementing guidelines are being revised to reflect the continuance of the policy and will be available at: http://atyourservice.ucop.edu/employees/policies/policies/other_policies/military_pay/mil_pay_guide.pdf
Should the war on terrorism continue beyond the 2004-05 fiscal year, the University may consider again extending the supplemental pay and health premium contributions, depending upon the budgetary situation at that time.
