Name Change Requests Move Online


Recommended Posts

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Sailors can now request name changes online via MyNavy Portal, Navy leaders said June 28. 

To initiate a name change, Sailors simply log into MyNavy Portal (www.my.navy.mil) and find “Name Change” under the “My Record” menu. This service, like the recent Officer Photograph submission enhancement, turns a once-manual and lengthy process into a streamlined, Sailor-friendly process. Turnaround times for these requests decrease from months to days.

“The previous name change process involved many steps and required service members to provide their supporting documentation to their servicing personnel support organization/representative,” said Paul Wilder, director, Records Management and Benefits Division, Navy Personnel Command (NPC).

Once the Sailor submitted their paperwork, it was validated and sent to the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) Help Desk for entry into NSIPS. From there, the documentation was sent to NPC’s Personnel Information Management Department for entry into the Sailor’s Official Military Personnel File (OMPF).  

“The new system expedites the process, and now name changes are completed in about two days rather than months,” Wilder explained.

The automated name change process provides a self-service automated form, the ability to attach supporting documentation and automated routing/work flow to NPC for completion of the process and an automated update to associated databases.  

Now that the process is in place, the Records Management Division is in the process of addressing the remainder of legacy name change requests that currently reside in NSIPS.

To date, more than 670 name change requests have been completed using the automated process.

      On the day that Airman Apprentice Antonio D. Miller ditched his Navy unit and deserted from the Navy, “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees was the number one song in America, Jimmy Carter was president and junior enlisted sailors couldn’t even begin to explain the meaning of #FYP. But desert Miller did, on April 14, 1978, giving the slip to his Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia, command and remaining on the lam until May of last year, when the long arm of Navy law finally caught up with him, more than 44 years later.

      January 24, 2023   UPDATED PHYSICAL READINESS PROGRAM GUIDES FOR 2023 With the release of OPNAVINST 6110.1K (22 April 2022) and the incorporation of previously released Physical Readiness Program (PRP) NAVADMINS, along with feedback from the Fleet, we have condensed the PRP Guides from 15 to 11.    CFL/ACFLs are highly encouraged to thoroughly review each PRP Guide in its entirety, as several guides have been updated to provide clarity to the Fleet.  Although the guides are written primarily for CFL/ACFLs, all personnel may review the new PRP Guides to fully understand the policies of the Navy Physical Readiness Program.  The new 11 guides are listed below and can be found under the Guides tab to the left: Guide 1:  PRP Policies Guide 2:  Command PRP Checklists Guide 3:  CFL/ACFL and Member’s Responsibilities Guide 4:  Body Composition Assessment (BCA) Guide 5:  Physical Readiness Test (PRT) Guide 6:  PFA Medical Readiness Guide 7:  PRIMS-2 Guide 8:  Managing PFA Records for Pregnant Sailors Guide 9:  Command PT and FEP Guide 10:  Nutrition Resources Guide 11:  Conduct of the PFA in COVID-19 Conditions   With the 2023 PFA cycle approaching, commands are encouraged to include PRP Policy training topics (Medical Waivers, BCA Measurements, mock/official PRT, etc.) within their training schedules and prior to conducting their Official Command PFA Cycle, as prescribed in their 10-week notice.
