IMPLEMENTATION OF RESERVE COMPONENT MATERNITY LEAVE.
REF D IS MEMORANDUM, FROM CHIEF OF NAVY TO COMMANDER,
NAVY RESERVE
FORCE, DELEGATING THE AUTHORITY TO EXECUTE THE RESERVE
COMPONENT
MATERNITY LEAVE POLICY.
RMKS/1. Purpose. This All Navy Reserve Force (ALNAVRESFOR) provides
supplemental execution guidance in accordance with References (a)
through (d) regarding the Reserve Component Maternity Leave (RCML)
Program. Section 602 of Public Law 116-283, also known as the
"William M. ("Mac") Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act
for Fiscal Year 2021" authorized RCML.
1.A. Reference(a) describes the implementation of the RCML program
for Selected Reservists (SELRES) who experience a Qualifying Birth
Event (QBE), including policies and procedures detailing the roles
and responsibilities, applicability, eligibility, and parameters of
the program. All Ready Reserve members should read and be familiar
with reference (a), as it describes the specific details for
eligibility and use of RCML, but this ALNAVRESFOR focuses upon
guidance for eligible SELRES members.
2. RCML Execution. The intent of the RCML program is to afford
maximum scheduling flexibility to eligible SELRES after a QBE. The
process delineated below is a temporary solution until Defense
Finance Accounting Service (DFAS) and Navy Standard Integrated
Personnel System (NSIPS) develop a permanent pay system process for
RCML. Due to evolving policy and developing pay system updates,
current policy and procedures are available in the RCML folder on
the Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command (COMNAVRESFORCOM)
Reserve
Pay, Incentives and Force Retention (N111) SharePoint site,
https://private.navyreserve.navy.mil/cnrfc/N-Codes/N1/CNRFC_N11/
SitePages/Home.aspx, under the "Tools for Success" section.
a. Navy Reserve Additional Policy.
(1) RCML effective date is 9 June 2022. Reference (a) prohibits
retroactive requests for QBEs on 8 June 2022 or earlier.
(2) Eligible SELRES must be in a paid reserve billet and have a Duty
Status Code (DSC) 200.
(3) Eligible SELRES are authorized six days of RCML.
(4) A maximum of 12 regular Inactive Duty Training (IDT) periods
shall be utilized to meet the authorized six days of RCML.
(5) Two consecutive, regular IDT periods shall be scheduled for the
same day to execute one RCML day. The splitting of two regular IDTs
over two calendar days to equal one day of RCML is not authorized.
(6) RCML periods shall coincide with previously scheduled IDTs.
(7) NSIPS Enhancement for Drill Management (EDM) will be the
authoritative system for RCML execution.
(8) Per reference (a), Training Unit Identification Code (TRUIC)
Commanding Officers (COs) will approve all dates requested within
three months after the QBE. Outside of three months, TRUIC COs will
make every effort to accommodate requests within administrative and
operational requirements. If RCML is denied outside of three months,
TRUIC COs will propose alternate dates within the one-year limiting
date.
(9) Additional IDTs (Additional Training Period, Additional Flight
Training Period, and Reserve Management Period) are not authorized
for use as RCML periods.
(10) Although not required, to ease administrative burden after the
QBE, eligible SELRES are encouraged to execute responsibilities
specified in paragraph 2b prior to the QBE. Eligible SELRES retain
the flexibility to change prescheduled RCML days after the QBE. In
emergent situations when the eligible SELRES is unavailable, the
Navy Reserve Activity (NRA) and TRUIC CO may coordinate to schedule
the RCML drill dates.
(11) SELRES utilizing RCML are entitled to inactive duty pay,
retirement points, special or incentive pays and bonuses [as
otherwise eligible], but RCML does not confer entitlement to any
form of military pay, allowance or other benefit not expressly
provided for by Section 602 of Public Law 116-283 and reference (a).
b. Responsibilities.
(1) SELRES will:
 (a) Review and be familiar with reference (a).
(b) Route a NAVPERS 1336/3, "Special Request Authorization," via
the NRA N9 Medical Department, to the TRUIC CO specifying requested
RCML days.
(c) Sign a RCML NAVPERS 1070/613, "Administrative Remarks", located
in the RCML folder on the CNRFC N111 SharePoint site under the
"Tools for Success" section, https://private.navyreserve.navy.mil/
cnrfc/N-Codes/N1/CNRFC_N11/SitePages/Home.aspx
(2) TRUIC CO will:
 (a) Review and be familiar with reference (a).
 (b) Adjudicate NAVPERS 1336/3, "Special Request Authorization."
 (c) Ensure member signs RCML NAVPERS 1070/613, "Administrative
Remarks".
 (d) Sign the RCML NAVPERS 1070/613, "Administrative Remarks".
 (e) Coordinate any questions the Sailor may have with the NRA and
higher echelons, as needed.
 (f) Deliver both signed documents to the NRA Manpower and
Personnel
(N1) department and coordinate EDM scheduling, if required.
 (g) Notify Unit Mobilization Unit Identification Code (UMUIC) CO of
approved RCML drill periods for all non-locally assigned personnel.
 (h) Ensure RCML drill periods are scheduled prior to execution.
 (i) Ensure Unit Mustering Officials and Approvers are tracking RCML
drill period execution.
 (j) Ensure RCML drill periods are promptly mustered as "Present"
and adjudicated as "Satisfactory" for drill payment and retirement
point issuance.
(3) NRA will:
 (a) Review and be familiar with reference (a).
 (b) Maintain copies of the NAVPERS 1336/3 and NAVPERS 1070/613,
per
current record management policies.
 (c) Ensure "RCML" is in the 'EDM Comments' section to allow for
accurate data collection required by higher echelons.
 (d) Certify RCML drill periods in EDM in accordance with
reference (b).
3. Points of contact.
 a. For policy matters, contact COMNAVRESFORCOM Force Staff
Plans & Policy (N53) at CNRFC_N5(at)us.navy.mil.
 b. For execution matters, contact COMNAVRESFORCOM Reserve Pay,
Incentives, and Force Retention (N11) Reserve Pay Team at
cnrfc_n11_reserv.fct(at)navy.mil.
4. Exception to policy requests will be routed to CNRFC N53, via the
cognizant chain of command, for final adjudication by Chief of Navy
Reserve.
5. This ALNAVRESFOR will remain in effect until superseded or
canceled, whichever comes first.
6. Released by RADM John Schommer, Deputy Commander, Navy Reserve
Force.//
