Per Diem Procedures

Hi Members,

It’s yard time for some vessels and to clarify the per diem form process see the link below to read the publication sent out by the employer. The Purser or PSWIC will most likely be the person in charge of the forms, but it’s a good memo to read to educate yourself about the per diem process.

Hi Members,

We have noticed that some of the NOPP forms that our members have been using are older versions where it asked you for your social security number. The updated form has been on our website. If you notice that you get an older version of the NOPP, please let the person you received it from be aware that there is a newer version on our website. This newer version only asks for your employee ID. If you are using an older version, please only include your employee ID to safeguard yourselves when sending the form through your personal email.


Thank you!
