USMAP changes!
4 Things to Know: USMAP Updates

USMAP changes!

USMAP is a formal military training program that provides service members the opportunity to improve their job skills they are on active duty.


Another update to the Post 9/11 GI Bill Transfer to dependents! Beginning 1 October 2018, PG13’s are no longer required. Replaced by electronic SOU found through My Navy Portal under My Education. Read the NAVADMIN in its entirety for more information and guidance.



CMS-ID will experience some down time from 26 July - 31 July. The application phase is currently open but this will affect the ability to submit applications during that time. Please be sure to submit your applications prior to this scheduled down time.


***Take Action NOW***

Major Post 9/11 GI Bill Transfer to Dependents Changes coming as soon as 19 July!

I have received confirmation that the Post 9/11 GI Bill DoD Instruction (DoDI) 1341.13 revision may be singed as early as 19 July. There are two major changes that will impact Sailors, one of them immediately.

1. Effective immediately with the release of the DoDI, the exception that permits a service member who has 10 years of service, but is unable to obligate 4 years due to statute or standard policy (i.e. HYT), to only serve the amount of time authorized by that statute or policy, will be cancelled. All members who wish to transfer education benefits must have the ability to obligate 4 years of service in order to be approved.

This impacts all Sailors who are within 4 years of HYT and officers who are 2 x FOS (*were not selected for promotion twice)

2. Effective one year from release, transferability will only be available for Sailors with at least 6 years of service, up to 16 years of service. Those with greater than 16 years will be ineligible to do so.

**Important Announcement Regarding CMS-ID**

On Feb, 3, while conducting routine maintenance CMS-ID, a database error occurred causing nearly 5,000 Sailors to receive notifications, in error, that their Letters of Intent (LOI) had been cancelled. Assignment selections remain unchanged, and affected Sailors will begin receiving notification of the error via email beginning Feb. 7. Navy Personnel Command has restored CMS-ID and Sailors can now use the system in accordance with the current CMS-ID calendar.

Bottom Line: No Sailor lost their orders or will need to go through another selection process.

We apologize for the frustration or anxiety this event may have caused. We understand Sailors and their families depend on CMS-ID and other systems to work properly because we are Sailors too.

Final Note: The detailers do not physically operate the CMS-ID website. They are users just like all other Sailors. If you experience issues with CMS-ID, please contact the CMS-ID Help Desk.

Great information on when to expect pay after advancing.

Sailors who took the fall exams and were recently selected for advancement in Cycle 236 or Cycle 101 will be advanced from January to June 2018. No less than 3% will be advanced in the first five pay increments (January to May), with the majority being advanced in June. Pay increments begin on the 16th of the month, with the pay bump showing in the paycheck at the beginning of the following month. Advancements are determined by Final Multiple Score standing, not exam percentile. The system looks at all ratings and uses fair share incrementation when determining what pay increment a Sailor falls in. Best thing to do is sign up for email notification at the top of your profile sheet. You will be sent an email whenever your advancement status changes.


This applies to all Sailors or their dependents applying or planning to apply to use education benefits (Post 9/11 GIBILL or MGIB-SR) and requesting a certificate of eligibility from the VA.

The VA has retired the VONAPP website at and will be redirecting members to the following sites: and
Both of these websites link to the same VA Education Benefits pages.

If an application in VONAPP was submitted prior to the change, the VA will process the request and contact members for any needed next steps.

The following forms are included in these sites:
Application for VA Education Benefits (VA Form 22-1990) Application for Family Member to Use Transferred Benefits (VA Form 22-1990E)

All questions should directed to the VA at (888) 442-4551.
