AFMC officials share civilian pay update after shutdown

Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command Financial Management officials outlined Oct. 8 the pay and entitlement discrepancies civilian employees should anticipate on upcoming paychecks due to the recent government shutdown.

The following listing distinguishes civilian categories and what employees within each should expect for the pay dates of Oct. 11 and Oct. 25, 2013:

Exempt

Exempt employees were not furloughed on Oct. 1 because funds were available to pay them.

Pay & Entitlement Status

  • Both Oct. 11 and Oct. 25 pay dates should include a full two week’s pay, or 100 percent pay for the work performed. This includes premium pay, like overtime, and also the normal accrual of sick and annual leave.

Excepted

Excepted employees include those employees whose job was determined essential to continuing excepted operations and, therefore, allowed to continue working on Oct. 1.

Pay & Entitlement Status

  • Oct. 11 pay date should include normal pay and leave for Sept. 22-30 and pay for work performed for Oct. 1-5. At this time, there is no paid leave from Oct. 1-5 for excepted employees.
  • Oct. 25 pay date should include normal pay and leave.

Non-Excepted

Non-excepted employees include those employees who were furloughed on Oct. 1. These employees received written notification of their furlough status.

Pay & Entitlement Status

  • Oct. 11 pay date should include normal pay for Sept. 22-30 and no pay for Oct. 1-5. Employees should expect approximately 60 percent of pay plus any premium pay earned from Sept. 22-30. The percentage earned will differ based on an employee’s pay deductions.

At this time, employees will not receive pay for the up to approximately 4 hours taken to accomplish an orderly shutdown on Oct. 1 until an appropriations bill passes. Similarly, non-excepted employees whose supervisors authorized them to take longer than 4 hours to accomplish orderly shutdown should not expect to be paid for the hours worked until an appropriations bill passes.

  • Oct. 25 pay date should include normal pay and leave.

All employees who accumulate 80 hours of Leave Without Pay, or LWOP, by the pay date of Oct. 11, 2013, will not earn leave for that pay period.

An employee could have a pay error if his or her pay record did not accurately reflect pay status during this time. These are administrative errors that will be fixed as soon as possible through a local Customer Service Representative. If further questions regarding pay and entitlements arise, individuals should contact their CSR and local Comptroller to assist with these inquiries.

Military personnel should expect a normal paycheck Oct. 15.
