    Effective immediately, you are no longer required to submit a Request for Personnel Action (RPA) for the following benefits-related personnel actions:

    - Voluntary Retirement
    - VERA / VSIP
    - Discontinued Service Retirements
    - Deaths
    - Disability Retirements

    Upon receipt of an employee's retirement application package sent directly to the Army Benefits Center - Civilian (ABC-C), they will use a new feature to electronically create these RPAs. Supervisors will receive an e-mail notification on the effective date of their employee's retirement. This will allow for further coordination with your resource management office.

    For additional information contact the Army Benefits Center - Civilian at 785-239-6000 or DSN 856-6000.

    Due to the continuing threat against Americans, the Department of the Army has implemented an automated method whereby all employees who are US citizens may document their emergency contact data. The Army has migrated the Emergency Contact Database to My Biz. You can access it by going into My Biz, selecting "Update My Info" and then clicking on "Emergency Contact Information." You can list primary and alternate emergency contacts. All employees should enter their emergency contact information into this database and provide a hard copy to their supervisor. It only take a few minutes to complete. This will ensure your loved ones are notified in case of an emergency. We strongly encourage you to take a few minutes out of your schedule to register your data.
    N O T I C E:
    Federal law requires all employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States. This employer will provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new employee's Form I-9 to confirm work authorization.


    IMPORTANT: If the Government cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, this employer is required to provide you written instructions and an opportunity to contact SSA and/or DHS before taking adverse action against you, including terminating your employment. Employers may not use E-Verify to pre-screen job applicants or to re-verify current employees and may not limit or influence the choice of documents presented for use on the Form I-9. In order to determine whether Form I-9 documentation is valid, this employer uses E-Verify's photo screening tool to match the photograph appearing on some permanent resident and employment authorization cards with the official U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' (USCIS) photograph. If you believe that your employer has violated its responsibilities under this program or has discriminated against you during the verification process based upon your national origin or citizenship status, please call the Office of Special Counsel at 1-800-255-7688 (TDD: 1-800-237-2515).
