EID

Frequently Asked Questions

How do EID benefits work?

This office has received a few questions surrounding EID Benefits for members that initially receive the benefit, but do not activate. Below is your guidance and how this guidance applies to the 2 situations below:

Situation #1: Marine Reserve identified for activation. EID entry is submitted to allow for the early TRICARE benefits. During the 180-day period, the member uses those EID benefits. Prior to the activation, member is injured and is deemed "not medically qualified" for mobilization.

GUIDANCE: When the member is determined to be "not medically qualified for mobilization" due to a condition arising from an injury sustained during E-ID, he/she should be removed from the E-ID list. A line of duty [yes/no] determination on the member must be made. If the determination of LOD is yes then he/she is entitled to continued care through TRICARE. If the determination of LOD is no, then continued coverage is not authorized and the unit then runs the "Early Notice Termination" date. The member is not responsible for the cost of medical care received while in an EID status.

Situation #2: Marine Reserve identified for activation. EID entry is submitted to allow for the early TRICARE benefits. During the 180-day period, the member uses those EID benefits. Prior to the activation, the member is removed from the list of those being activated (member no longer required to activate). The unit then runs the "Early Notice Termination" date effective the date the determination was made to remove member from list.

GUIDANCE: Like the first situation, once it has been determined that a member will not be mobilized/deployed he/she must be removed from the E-ID list. The member is not responsible for the cost of medical care received while in an E-ID status. However, if he/she was removed from E-ID by reason of not being qualified for mobilization due to a medically limiting condition, a medical evaluation board should be convened to determine if the case should be sent to a physical evaluation board to determine if the member should be retained in the reserves.

Situation #3: Unit runs an Early ID transaction with a start date of 20080301 with a projected active duty date of 20180715. The same Marine is on active duty under ADOS (or any active duty) orders from 20180120 - 20180401. The Early ID transaction will not process in DEERS because the individual Marine is on active duty at the start of the EID period.

GUIDANCE: The solution is for units to run the Early ID period after active duty ends with a start date no earlier than the day after the active duty period ends. In this example that would be 20180402.

Situation #4: Unit runs an Early ID transaction with a start date of 20180301 with a projected active duty date of 20180715. The same Marine is then given ADOS orders that run from 20180310 - 20180415. The Early ID benefit will not pick up again when the active duty ends.

GUIDANCE: The solution in this case is for the unit to run another Early ID transaction with a start date the day after active duty ends. In this example that would be 20180416.

 

Muster After DeMob

How do I annotate my muster sheets following deactivation?

Per UnderSecDef Memorandum 15 Mar 07 (it was also stated in each previous Memo), "Members who have served on active duty involuntarily in support of this contingency for more than three consecutive months shall be exempted from involuntarily performing:
(1) AT for a minimum of 6 months, and
(2) IDT for a minimum of 60 days after release from active duty"

With this in mind, during the 60-day period, the member CAN perform IDT, but cannot be REQUIRED to perform IDT. Also, if the member does not perform IDT during this 60-day period, he will be allowed to make up the drill with no penalties. The marking of N/S will be annotated on the muster sheet for any member not performing drill during the 60-day period.

The upcoming change to the MCRAMM will include the following:
Para 5203.2.a (5) - Personnel not scheduled for IDT will be marked "NS" (not scheduled). Reservists who are on active duty (ADOS, AT, IIADT, School, etc.), or who have made arrangements for a RIDT prior to the scheduled IDT are not scheduled. Additionally, Reservists who are not required to attend IDT following release from active duty from a period of involuntary activation will also be annotated as NS. Following the NS, annotate in the comments column of the muster sheet the reason, e.g., RIDT: (date), "AT/ADOS (date) to (date)/(location), or "Not Required to perform IDT following release from Involuntary Activation." A reservist who arranges to miss a unit IDT and does not schedule the RIDT prior to the IDT is considered absent from the scheduled IDT.


Reenlist

How do I run an extension or reenlistment on a Marine that has already been mobilized?

Reenlistments/extensions USMCR for mobilization purposes:

If the extension or reenlistment is dated after the MDay, report the mobilization TTC 826 first; then, report the Initial Join per mobilization instructions.

Once the Initial Join has cycled, report the reenlistment/extension USMCR. The ECC may need to be updated to match the EAS after the reenlistment/extension has been reported. Always check record in MCTFS after entries have cycled.



Correcting Activation

How do I correct an activation on a Marine who did not activate?

There has been a rise in "oops accidentally activated this Marine" issues.
They are not correcting it the right way ...

QUESTION: I accidentally activated a Marine that should not have been
activated. How do I correct MCTFS?

SCENARIO #1 - Member has been activated (M-Day entry ran), yet has NOT been
INIT JOINED to the unit.
- DO NOT RUN A JOIN ERRONEOUS ENTRY
- Reserve RUC must run TTC 369 003 JOIN/TRANSFER ERRONEOUS.
- Complete a full and comprehensive audit of the record. This
entry will automatically re-set many entries w/in MCTFS.

SCENARIO #2 - Member has been activated (M-Day entry ran) and has also been
INIT JOINED to the active duty RUC.
- DO NOT RUN A JOIN ERRONEOUS ENTRY
- AcDu RUC must run TTC 378 000 DROP (MBK5) entry effective the
same date as the INIT JOIN
- Res RUC must JOIN the member back to the SMCR
- If the member received pay, inform member that he/she will be
checked (provide info on how to write a check to US Treasury Dept).
- Contact MISSO 16/17 (Ms Debbie Clark) to have the CRCR adjusted
to remove the 1 duty point the member was credited

*** The best way to avoid an inadvertant activation is to ENSURE
that the member is PHYSICALLY present for duty prior to submitting the
INIT JOIN entry.

Activated Reservist ProCons

How do Pro/Cons work for activated reservists?

Proficiency and Conduct Marks. IAW MCO P1070.12K Corporals and below serving on active duty in a full duty status having not received markings within the last 90 day will receive Semi-Annual (SA) marks on 31Jan & 31Jul. The unit should also run NA for the Annual (AN) marks for 31Dec.

1. When the effective date of Transfer (TR), To TAD (TD), TAD Complete (C), Promotion (PR) or Reduction (RD) marks coincides with the issuing of the SA marks, the TR, TD, TC, PR, RD marks will take precedence.

2. When the effective date of another reporting occasion (such as the period of TAD to the GFC) occurs 90 days prior to the effective date for reporting the AN Marks (31Dec), the TR, TD, TC, PR, RD, etc will take precedence. Run the appropriate marks, then run NA for the AN Marks (31Dec).

3. If a Marine completes his period of activation and is deactivated within 90 days prior to the effective date for reporting SA marks (31Jan & 31Jul), run the TR marks. If this occurs within 90 days prior to the next AR marking requirement (31DEC) run NA for the AR marks.

4. If a Marine completes his period of activation and is deactivated within 90 days after the effective date for reporting the SA marks (31Jan & 31Jul), then run the SA marks and then run NA for the TR marks.


Activation DD214

When do I issue a DD-214 to a deactivating reservist?

Per MEMORANDUM FOR CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL DEPUTY COMMANDANT, MANPOWER AND RESERVE AFFAIRS:

DD-214's will be issued upon execution of LWAS (or PDMRA/LWAS) vice waiting for the actual RELACDU date.

Activated Reservist FitReps

What reporting occasion and dates are activated Marines given Fitness Reports?

SMCR Marines being activated/deployed under the same RS have no report due
upon activation. SMCR Marines being activated/deployed under a different RS
must have a transfer "TR" report completed with an ending date 1 day prior
to the date of activation. Fitness reports will be completed and submitted
for any occasion occurring during activation, which requires a fitness
report per MCO P1610.7 (PES Manual). During periods of activation,
activated SMCR Marines will continue to receive their annual "AR" report as
due IAW MCO P1610.7 (PES Manual). Upon demobilization/deactivation, SMCR
Marines will receive a "CS" report with an ending date equal to the date of
demobilization (if the RS was not the Marine's normal RS), or the date of
deactivation (if the RS is the Marine's normal RS). The beginning date of
the next reporting occasion must be verified to and begin the date following
the end date of the "CS" report as to ensure there are no "date gaps". Any
periods of LWAS or PDMRA should be annotated as a period of
non-availability.


PME While MOBd

Clarification to Marine Corps Reserve Policy Board, Issue 09-01: PME WHILE MOBILIZED

In accordance with MARADMIN 238-05, any/all periods of concurrent TAD must be executed via the issuance of a DD Form 1610 citing the OCO appropriation data from the Marine's MROWS activation orders.

The manner in which concurrent TAD for PME is being worked out at the MarForRes and CMC level.  Until such time that new guidance is published by CMC on the process by which concurrent TAD is executed for PME, MarForRes units will comply with MARADMIN 238-05.

In the meantime, if a Marine executes concurrent TAD for PME while activated - they will be issued a DD Form 1610 citing the OCO appropriation data from the Marine's activation orders.

Members are authorized to attend PME for a period
NOT TO EXCEED 15 DAYS

in duration.
