S1NET Message Summary - 26 Jan 23

1. TAG SENDS-DD 214 PROCESSING, LOD/FIB, AFGHANISTAN RETROGRADE AWARDS, AND IPPS-A, 25 JAN 23. From BG, Gregory S. Johnson, The Adjutant General of the Army:  This edition contains updates/information on:  Processing DD Form 214’s, LOD and Fatal Incident Briefs, Transition Services Update, IPPS-A Order Format, and Effects of Training in IPPS-A With iPERMS. Some key points follow:      a. Processing of DD Form 214s. The Army is experiencing data processing issues with the Transition Processing System (TRANSPROC) preventing Soldiers across the Army from signing their DD 214. Additionally, there may be delays in processing separation orders for Active and Reserve Component Soldiers. Those impacted should contact their supporting transition center for any updates regarding their documents.       b. IPPS-A Order (and Absence Request) Format. There are several reports that Soldiers were turned away from Housing Offices and/or Transportation Offices because those organizations had never seen the IPPS-A orders/absence formats that Soldiers now possess. This system is a monumental change for the Army. To help us all with the transition, attached is a document that includes photos of the IPPS-A PCS Orders format, an Absence request, and a Promotion order.      c. Effects of training in IPPS-A with iPERMS. While it is awesome that HR Professionals and S1s are conducting IPPS-A training, please do not use the IPPS-A system for training purposes.  Doing so will cause second and third effects in the Soldier AMHRR (iPERMS). IPPS-A provides the Operational Training Environments (OTE) for any IPPS-A training, the links for access are provided with this TAG Sends. 2. INCREASE IN MAXIMUM SGLI COVERAGE IN MAR 23.  From Army G-1 Compensation & Entitlements: Public Law 117-209 (Supporting Families of the Fallen Act) increased the maximum SGLI coverage from $400,000 to $500,000 for all Service members, including those Service members who previously declined or reduced coverage.  By law, when the increase in coverage occurs, all eligible Service members will have their coverage increased to the new maximum. This is to ensure that all Service members can obtain the new maximum coverage without any medical underwriting. Service members who previously declined SGLI coverage will be automatically insured for $500,000 unless they opt out or elect a lesser coverage amount. The earliest date to reduce or decline coverage is 1 March 2023.  Service members should not try to reduce their coverage before 1 March 2023, or the election will be automatically increased the maximum SGLI coverage of $500,000 on 1 March when the change goes into effect.

HQDA G-1 PCC is hosting three separate 1-day training events between 14-16 FEB 2023 at the 40ID Headquarters on Joint Force Training Base (JFTB), Los Alamitos, CA. We encourage Commands to ensure a DPAPM, and an alternate, and major Command CORs are appointed as soon as possible so personnel are eligible to register for training seats for the course in FEB.
