2. CLARIFICATIONS ON RE-CERTIFYING A DECLINATION OF SGLI COVERAGE. From the Army SOES Team: Soldiers must use SOES for all requests to change, cancel, restore, or re-certify SGLI coverage, unless the Soldier intends to re-certify an election of “zero coverage.” Until it becomes a functional capability within SOES, Soldiers intending to re-certify “zero coverage” must complete a SGLV 8286 form, then email it encrypted to the Army SOES Team usarmy.knox.hrc.mbx.army-soes@
3. WHAT TO DO WHEN SOES ELECTIONS ARE NOT CORRECT ON A RESERVE SOLDIER’S PAY. From the Army SOES Team: Last year S1Net posted two messages (Reserve Pay Message #19-07 and DFAS Military Pay E-Message #19-035) that specified the procedures to be followed when an SGLI coverage election made in SOES does not update a Reserve Soldier’s Master Military Pay Account. Both Messages reaffirmed that SGLI and FSGLI elections must be made in SOES. Reserve Pay Message #19-97 directed that SOES election changes should reflect on the Soldier’s LES no later than 45 days after the Soldier made the change in SOES. Both Messages provided points of contact for SOES-related pay questions. For the full message go to: https://www.milsuite.mil/book/
