Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
An agreement with the state for MMC reimbursement has been finalized. Any employee whose MMC is to expire in calendar year 2017 or 2018 and renew their MMC anytime between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 will be eligible for reimbursement from the employer. Employees need to submit a complete renewal, with payment, to the USCG, on or before 12/31/16, in order to qualify for the reimbursement. We encourage everyone to not wait until 12/31, but to renew sooner rather than later. 12/31 is a Saturday and the USCG Regional Offices will be closed. Instructions from the employer will be sent out shortly on who to send reimbursements to.
Yours in Solidarity,
Joshua J. Stephenson
