MCCS - Post Allowance Claims

Civilian Personnel Management Service (CPMS) confirmed that some U.S. citizens hired overseas in DoD NAF positions were not paid Post Allowance in accordance with DoD policy and regulations. Post Allowance is a cost of living allowance that offsets the costs of goods and services at an overseas location as compared to costs in Washington, DC. To correct this situation, on March 21, 2008, the Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness) directed that the DoD NAF employers begin paying Post Allowance to all eligible NAF employees not currently receiving the benefit. By April 24, 2008, all NAF employers had started paying Post Allowance to all current eligible overseas NAF employees.

DoD NAF procedures have been issued permitting current and former NAF employees to file claims for Post Allowance payments not paid for the period from December 1, 2001 to April 24, 2008.
