Important Benefits Reminders for Administrative Officers

When An Employee Enters Leave Without Pay (LWOP) Status – If an employee will be on LWOP for more than 30 consecutive days, a personnel action must be processed.  For guidance, please contact the servicing HR Specialist in Recruitment, Staffing, and Classification.  And because non-pay status can severely impact an employee’s benefits, it is also very important that you notify the servicing Benefits Specialist as soon as you are notified that the employee is going on LWOP.

When An Employee Dies In Service – In the event of the death of an employee, please notify the servicing Benefits Specialist immediately.  The Benefits Specialist will counsel the employee’s surviving family member(s) on available benefits and assist in the preparation and timely submission of death benefits claim forms.
