S1NET Message Summary - 7 Sep 23

1. DEPENDENT CARE FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS. From the OUSD P&R/M&RA/MPP: Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (DCFSAs) are a new benefit for Service members and families to contribute tax-free earnings for dependent care expenses, including day care, preschool, elder care, and nanny or au pair services. This benefit allows Service members to contribute up to $5,000 per household per year in pre-tax income to enable the Service member and spouse (if married) to work, look for work, or go to school full-time. Enrollment (during annual Federal Benefits Open Season) opens for members of the Uniformed Services in November 2023. For further details and enrollment information, visit the following link. 2. NATO TRAVEL ORDERS FOR SOLDIERS PCS’ING TO EUROPE. From USAREUR-AF:  The 21st Theater Support command will discontinue its liaison mission at the Baltimore Airport this upcoming week. During the course of the summer PCS cycle, the BWI team identified a significant issue. The most common issue encountered is Soldiers' lack of awareness about the necessity of NATO orders for PCSing to Europe. These orders are vital for ensuring that Soldiers and Families are protected by the Status of Forces Agreements the U.S. Government has with host nations and any missing orders will place a major burden on the Soldier and Family. If you are PCS’ing to Europe and don’t have a NATO travel order, ask your MPD about it. 3.
