Figure 13-1.-Application for Shipment and/or Storage of Personal Property, DD Form 129-9
Personnelman 3 & 2 - Military manual for government personnel administration
Separation of Enlisted Personnel
out an original DD Form 1299, which is signed by the member. Authority  to  approve  shipments  of  household  goods before  receipt  of  orders  has  been  delegated  to  the transportation  officer  at  the  local  household  goods shipping activity. This  authority  is  subject  to  the provisions contained in the Transportation Personal Property,  NAVSUP  490. Submission  of  claims  for  loss  or  damage  of household  goods  must  be  handled  according  to  the Personnel Claims Regulations of the  Manual of the Judge  Advocate  General  (JAGMAN),  JAGINST 5800.7C. Advise members to seek assistance, if it is needed, from the nearest naval activity. QUESTIONS CONCERNING SERVICE AND PAY STATUS WHILE ON INACTIVE DUTY Advise  Regular  Navy  and  Naval  Reserve  Personnel released  from  active  duty  of  the  proper  procedures  for obtaining answers to questions they may have while on inactive duty. Specifically, you should provide them with the complete mailing address of the Commander, Naval   Reserve   Personnel   Center,   New   Orleans, Louisiana, in case they have questions concerning their service status. You should also provide them with the complete   address   of   the   Defense   Finance   and Accounting   Service   (DFAS),   Cleveland   Center, Cleveland, Ohio, in case they have questions concerning pay matters. It will also be of great help to the separating member if you can provide the telephone number to these  locations. POSSESSION OF HANDGUNS UPON SEPARATION State police officials have brought to the attention of  the  Secretary  of  Defense  (SECDEF)  that  some separating service personnel are returning to civilian life with handguns acquired while in the service. Since the possession of handguns is strictly regulated in many jurisdictions,  personnel  may  unintentionally  violate  the law by having handguns in their possession. Advise Navy  personnel  during  separation  processing  that  some states prohibit or limit the possession of handguns. Unless existing regulations are complied with, they may be subject to arrest by civilian law enforcement officials if a handgun is detected in their possession. HEALTH  CARE  INSURANCE  COVERAGE FOR MEMBERS BEING SEPARATED FROM  ACTIVE  DUTY Inform members being separated from the Navy of the need for civilian health care insurance. Medical care for service members and their eligible family members ceases  upon  the  member’s  discharge  or  separation  from active duty. Many members are unaware of this and have little knowledge of what civilian medical plans are available. To  help  them  during  the  transitional  period  until adequate medical insurance coverage can be bought, a private-pay health insurance policy is available through the DOD. Inform each member of the cost and benefits of the plan, and advise them that participation is strictly voluntary. Make sure you make a page 13 entry in the member’s service record indicating that he/she has been afforded   the   opportunity   to   elect   or   decline participation. Additional details follow in the next paragraphs. What is CHCIBP? Implementation  of  the  Continued  Health  Care Benefit  Program  (CHCBP)  was  directed  by  Congress  in section  4408  of  the  National  Defense  Authorization  Act for  Fiscal  Year  1993. This   law   directed   the implementation  of  a  program  of  temporary  continued health benefits coverage for servicemembers that is comparable to the benefits provided for former civilian employees  of  the  Federal  Government.  The  CHCBP  is a  premium-based,  temporary  health  care  coverage program  available  to  qualified  beneficiaries.  Medical benefits  under  this  program  mirror  the  benefits  offered via  the  basic  Civilian  Health  and  Medical  Program  of the Uniformed Services (CHAMPUS) program. The CHCBP  is  not  part  of  the  CHAMPUS  program; however,  it  functions  under  most  of  the  rules  and procedures  of  CHAMPUS. How Long Does CHCBP Coverage Last? For any member discharged or released from active duty   or   full-time   National   Guard   duty,   whether voluntarily or involuntarily, coverage under the CHCBP is  limited  to  18  months.  For  an  unmarried  dependent child  of  a  member  or  former  member,  coverage  under the CHCBP is limited to 36 months. Who is Eligible? Personnel who fit in one of the following categories are eligible for CHCBP: 13-9
