Subject: Mid Month Military Pay Notices
BLUF: DFAS has postured to address a potential government shutdown and
released mid-month pay statements that reflect payment of 1-8 April as
authorized by the current resolution.
Be advised, active duty 15 April Net Pay statements are posted on myPay and
reflect a payment of earned wages from 1-8 April. This amount is what can
be legally paid as DoD is funded up to 8 April 2011. DFAS is positioned to
pay 9-15 April once a budget or resolution is enacted. The minute funding
is approved, all unpaid accrued pay will be deposited. It's important to
note that this is only posturing. We could have a bill signed today/tonight
and all funds will flow at mid month but likely in two deposits. Below is a
portion of an Air Force press release on the portal that talks about this
Potential Government Shutdown
If the government has to shut down due to a lack of funding, the DOD will
have no funds to pay military members or civilian employees for the time the
government is shut down. However, both military and civilian personnel will
receive pay for the period worked prior to the shutdown.
"In general, if the government shuts down -- for however long it shuts down
-- there are no funds appropriated to pay government employees," said Doug
Wilson, the assistant secretary of defense for public affairs. "If you are
required to work -- as all men and women in uniform are required to work --
then there is a legal obligation to ultimately pay those men and women. When
that would happen would be timed to the restoration of appropriated funds."
Once funds restart, military personnel and all civilians occupying excepted
status positions are entitled to be paid for the work performed during the
shutdown, "and they will be paid retroactively," Colonel Lapan said.
DOD personnel who do not work during the shutdown will not get paid, he
said. "However, in past instances Congress has appropriated funds to pay
those civilians," Colonel Lapan said.
