Since we have employees who recently retired or are planning to retire soon that are affected, how can we get their records corrected in a timely fashion so that their retirements are not delayed if NFC will not process them on a case-by-case basis?

Title of Project:Stop Certain Auto Actions For Treasury

Brief Description:Currently, the National Finance Center (NFC) Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) processes personnel actions (PAR), payroll actions and time and attendance (T&A) data for HR Connect customers to be used in the processing of payroll. At this time, NFC is the system of record for all personnel and payroll reporting. The NFC also does automatic generation of certain personnel actions based on creditable service. Those actions are: Conversion of Career Tenure, Within Grade Increases, Change of Service Computation Dates (SCD), Completion of Probationary Periods, Termination of Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) and Termination of Federal Employee Group Life Insurance (FEGLI). To accomplish this, NFC captures paid and non-pay time from the T&A and/or PAR actions and carries them in counters along with dates for each to determine when the action should be generated. Each automatic action has separate and specific requirements for determining what time is creditable and the time frame in which the action should be generated.
