Report, the Coast Guard’s news source for the latest and greatest of what’s happening
in your Coast Guard. Hey everyone, I’m Chief Warrant Officer Chad
Saylor. And I’m Petty Officer Connie Terrell. The temporary separation program, known as
TEMPSEP, allows qualifying active duty members – who separate from the Coast Guard to pursue
family, personal, or professional interests – the opportunity to return to active duty
within two years of separating. The Coast Guard has announced updates to the
TEMPSEP program, effective immediately. To tell us more about the program changes is
Lt. Cmdr. Russ Mayer, team leader with the Office of Military Personnel. The Temporary Separation policy, known as
TEMPSEP, was one of the first “People” initiatives completed under the Commandant’s Human Capital
Strategy. Working with stakeholders across the Coast
Guard, we updated a Coast Guard unique program that allows unprecedented ability for Coast
Guard active duty members to transition to and from Active Duty. Some of the major updates of the policy include,
to allow members to more easily come back to Active Duty: All TEMPSEP members must affiliate with the Reserve. In addition, we’ve clarified policies and standards for certain other members who might
not be eligible for TEMPSEP. But because of life circumstances, need what TEMPSEP offers. Specifically members who are caring for a newborn child, victims of sexual assault, or who want to be a surrogate. To learn more about the changes to the Temporary
Separation policy, click the ALCOAST link in the description box below. You know, finding a job these days sure can
