Appendix C: Examples Illustrating Timing of FSGLI Changes and Payroll Actions

Tables 2 and 3 below give examples of the timing of actions to change FSGLI. The tables can be used as a guide for the personnel/payroll specialist processing the FSGLI change to let the member know when the change should be effective and what if any retro premiums or refunds will be due. The tables are broken into the following columns:

Scenario: these columns give the four types of changes that may be processed.

If Change is effective on: these columns give sample effective dates for the each type of change.

Effective month of premium change: these columns show the month the change to FSGLI premiums should begin.

DEERS is updated from: these columns give the different dates DEERS might receive the updated FSGLI information. (Reminder: The 25th and 3rd of the month are the dates that DEERS actually sends the information to DFAS. In order for an action to be included, it needs to be entered into DEERS at least two days prior to these dates.)

Then the monthly premium change will hit payroll in: These columns show when the change entered into DEERS will hit the payroll system.

And refunds are due for the month(s) of: These columns show which months the member should be refunded and whether the refund requires manual action (M), or will be automatically processed (A).

Or retro premiums are due for the month(s) of: These columns show which months the member should pay retro premiums and whether the retro premium requires manual action (M), or will be automatically processed (A).
