USCG: Military members, civilians will receive pay Dec. 31

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - This one-time action applies to military members that served on active duty in the month of December and those reserve military members that drilled prior to the lapse in appropriation.

    According to a U.S. government blog, the Trump administration, the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard have identified a way to pay the military and civilian workforce on Dec. 31.

    For the pay period of Dec. 9-22, civilian employees will receive pay only for hours worked as reflected on their Pay Period 25 timecard on the normal EFT pay date of Dec. 31.

    For Pay Period 26 (Dec. 23 – Jan 5. 2019), civilian employees will receive pay as follows:

    • Employees in category “exempt” positions are funded by a non-lapsing appropriation and will receive pay for the entire pay period performing excepted functions (i.e. Yard and Boating Safety-funded, etc).

    • Employees in category “excepted” positions are funded by a lapsing appropriation and will be paid retroactively for all time in a work status on or after Dec. 22, 2018, when a continuing resolution is passed or an appropriation is enacted. These employees will not be paid for time absent on furlough (including holidays) unless legislation is enacted that authorizes pay for non-work time during the furlough period.

    • Employees in category “non-exempt” who report for orderly shutdown will be paid retroactively for time in a work status to perform shutdown activities on or after Dec. 22, 2018, when a continuing resolution is passed or an appropriation is enacted. These employees will not be paid for time absent on furlough unless legislation is enacted that authorizes pay for non-work time during the furlough period.

    Most employees will accrue leave at their regular rate in Pay Period 25 unless they reached an increment of 80 hours of non-pay status in the pay period. Furloughed employees will not accrue leave in Pay Period 26 if they reach an increment of 80 hours of non-pay status in that pay period.
