Contingency Cost Moves and Other Options
« on: September 26, 2009, 10:20:26 »
Searched first, found squat. I put a memo up my C-o-C 6 months ago to request a contingency cost move to another Base..... Still patiently waiting for a response, but my question is, can any LOG types let me know exactly who pay for a CCM? Do they come out of Unit or career managers budgets or is there a separate pool of money set aside for CCM's or Compassionate Postings?

The national cost move budget pays CCMs (Reg F).

Is a Contingency Cost Move another way of saying a move on posting? I thought we are ordered to move and report by a certain COS date.

Thank you dapaterson. That clears alot up for me.

Sorry Jed, It's not that at all. I don't know all the ins and outs of a CCM Posting and a Compassionate Posting, I just know they are 2 separate mechanisms that the CF has to help assist it's members when circumstances can justify the move.

I have a question.
I am trying to request a contingency cost move for personal reasons and my CoC is not being supportive at all. Not only have they not tried to help me figure out the process, when i asked my direct supervisor to get me an appointment with the WO to figure out my next move she said she sent an email but no response, which i figured out recently she did not send. I am worried because i don't have my CoC's support and I'm scared to do this alone. any suggestions?

First place to start is DAOD 5003-6, Contingency Cost Moves for Personal Reasons, Compassionate Status and Compassionate Posting

You have to have a real hard look at yourself and your situation in order to see if you fit the reasons for CCM vice Compassionate Status/Posting. Doing so in a clinical/unemotional manner is sometimes (usually) very difficult to do.

Just because you cannot get past your immediate supervisor to the WO does not mean that your CoC does not support you. You aren't even to that stage yet. It means that your immediate supervisor, at best, does not share your sense of urgency or, at worst, is just a bit of a male sexual appendage.

Have a read of the DAOD and DAOD 5003-0 Restrictions on Duty and Individual Limitations and see where that gets you home work wise. Instead of talking to your supervisor, if you are getting no joy, talk with your RMS Clerk.

I have to second that. I have the distinct impression that a lot of people really don't understand a CCM and lump it in with compassionate postings. Be prepared to explain why it should be a CCM vs compassionate.

While both a CCM Posting and Compassionate Posting may appear the same from the surface when applying, they are not.  Both have very differing career implications and resolution times.  The approval process is relatively the same but the largest hurdle is "who pays" for the move, which is the bad point of it.  A CCM posting will come directly from the respective CM's budget, whilst a Compassionate posting will come from higher up.  So if your CM has no money left in their posting budget, your sort of stuck......

FYI

Ill acknowledge this is an old post first, but it is the first topic that comes up with regards to CCM.

Its stated that a CCM fin coding comes from the respective CM.

It does not, it comes from the same pool as the Compassionate posting allowance.

Your CM and CoC (not direct CoC,) the higher up the chain is very influential in the decision made by Col of D Mil C.
Stating, if your memo as directed is to the CO of your unit, your CoC has to pass it up, with their input whether or not to support or not, from that point if your CO agrees that a CCM is the most appropriate way to resolve the reasoning for a posting, (family requirement, language, medical, career potential etc) he/she will then submit a letter to your CM, stating that bla bla bla should be posted to alleviate these issues.

From that point your CM may ask you for various ppwk, etc to support it (if they support it).

From what I have been informed by the OR, Base OR, CM, and other senior members including my RSM, Very rarely will the Col of D Mil C go against what the CM, CO and medical, or social services recommend for a member. Especially if the unit/location you are requesting to go has positions and is higher on the priority manning list.

Compassionates should be used as a last resort. They have very stringent career implications. I have researched this alot over the past year.

Contingency Cost Move or Compassionate Status?
« Reply #10 on: November 20, 2013, 09:23:31 »
Here is the situation:

Wife is pregnant and she is taking a EI pay top up from her employer while on maternity leave.  In order to take it she has to return service to her employer in an equal amount of hours to the amount she will receive in top up.  The CF has a similar policy.  In order to be able to return service we have to remain in the same area until she can do that (it will take about 8 months beyond her 1 year of maternity leave).  That being said I'm fully deployable during her maternity and return service time.  If we had to leave before she had the opportunity to return service we would owe approximately $30,000 to her employer as her top up would be considered an overpayment.

Should I apply for a Contingency Cost Move (without a move) or Compassionate Status (no move)?

I should also mention I am due for posting but of course nothing official has come down.

Thanks.

Talk to your chain of command and career manager. You may be able to get the CM to annotate your file and defer any posting until after her payback.

What ModlrMike said.  Wife was due shortly after the APS for my last posting before I got out.  CM was sympathetic to difficulty of finding a new GP and ob/gyn for her at new posting location so close to due date, so he happily deferred my posting til the next APS.

What about going unaccompanied or IR while she is doing he return service time? 

Since first meeting each other, my wife and I have endured multiple separations (multiple tours at sea, a few operational deployments, courses, TD, etc).  The absolute worst separation was the three months that I "proceeded unaccompanied" before moving my family on posting.  It truly sucked for a variety of reasons, notwithstanding that I was living in an apartment on the Queen's dime and even getting paid for rations (this was before they changed the rules).  The worst part was that I was staring at the walls of my apartment while my wife had to deal with all the crap of getting ready to move.  I would think that going on IR, while leaving a newborn behind (with your wife having to go to work) would be even worse.  I would never recommend this.

If the reason you are "due for posting" is simply because you've been in one place for awhile and there is no other compelling reason to move you, I would think a simple call from your chain of command to your career manager would resolve this (at least it should).  Another thing to keep in mind is that you too are entitled to take Parental Leave.  So rather than your wife taking it all (and thus having to work longer to pay it back), perhaps you can take some yourself.  This does two things: 1) reduces the amount of payback your wife has to give and, 2) allows you to stay where you are.  For example, your wife takes six months and then goes back to work; then you take six months.  By the time you've taken your six months, your wife's obligation should be over and you're all set to be posted.  Even if the timing isn't perfect, the Career Manager is less likely to post you if he/she knows that you're likely to take parental leave soon after you arrive at the new location.

Have to agree with Pusser on this. The nine months I was on IR was definitely the worst time away from home. This too after numerous deployments etc. In these times of "fiscal constraint" it should be pretty straight forward for the CM to grant a CCM. But you have engage your CoC. Start with asking your supervisor to read over the memo you are going to write to ask for a CCM.
The forums are a great starting point but you have to have your supervisors on your side and they usually are if they are in the know and you have a valid case.
Good luck.

Talk about getting the cart in front of the horse.  The OP is projecting on his own that he is "due for posting" without giving any reason as to why he feels that and based on that he is already planning to apply for a CCM or a Compassionate Posting??  I know for a fact that the MP Career Managers haven't started doing interviews yet and I also know for a fact the MP Career Managers are expecting their moves to be slashed yet again, so the OP should stop panicking and wait to see what is in the cards before he starts generating what is very possibly unnecessary staff work.  IF a posting message comes in, that is the time to worry about this stuff, not five months in advance.

In the meantime, put the details of what is going on with your spouse in the comments section in EMAA.  Again, I know for a fact that the MP Career Managers read what is in EMAA, I have gotten a few interesting phone calls from the CM shop about what people thought was appropriate to put in there.

While I agree the talk of CCM or Compassionate status is very premature, I disagree with the rest of the above.  I know our career manager took great pains to ensure that the D Mil C webpage for the trade was kept up to date, including the date that your current position was scheduled to "Open".  If we saw that our current position was due to come open in APS 2014, you can be assured that there's a posting message coming, barring any unexpected events such as cutbacks on the number of moves available, a mass exodus causing a large number of promotions, or the like.

By the time the CM is cutting posting messages, the interviews are all over, and everyone has had their chance to express their preferences and wishes.  An ounce of prevention is in order here, and giving the CM a heads up that there are circumstances which might call for a posting deferral allows him to more accurately do the posting plot.  The earlier he/she gets this info, the better.

Good idea, but nothing beats a phone call to the CM to give them an early heads up that there are extenuating circumstances.  If the CM was indeed planning on posting the OP in APS 2014, it's better they know early than half way through the interviews and he's already pencilled someone into the vacant position that was going to be left by the OP.

A position on the CM's website could be opening for any number of reasons.  For the MP Branch, just because a person's position is listed as coming "open" doesn't mean it is because the CM is forecasting a cost move.

I have a little bit of insight on how the MP CM likes to work and EMAA is just as effective and certainly much quicker at this stage of the game as trying to engage the chain of command.  IF the member has an interview with the CM and at that point the CM is still indicating to the member that the intent is to move him, by all means, engage the chain of command but until then, don't panic and let the CM actually work his plot.

Contingency Cost Move vs Other Ooptions
« Reply #20 on: May 24, 2014, 14:23:42 »
My husband is currently on IR in Trenton, and since he's married he's staying in the Yukon Lodge. His ql3 course for ACISS doesn't look like it'll be happening until a rumored end of August start date, or in December. Here's our situation, I have a medical condition, and one of THE BEST doctors in Canada who specializes in my condition is in Kingston, and my current specialist knows him personally and can set up a direct referral to him. There's also a surgeon in Toronto that can perform a surgery that I require, and it would be easier to travel there from Kingston than from my home in Halifax. This medical condition is expensive (about $500 a month on medications, plus weekly treatments), and there's been an issue with our medical coverage through the CF, and we've been waiting since March to have it fixed so that I can start receiving benefits. Because of this, we've been paying everything completely out of pocket. On top of that, we have rent and bills to pay for here in Halifax, plus hubby's Rations in Trenton, and I'm not currently working because of my condition.

We've thought of a few solutions and we're not sure which could work out best.

1) We know we don't want to go for a compassionate status or move, as that would affect his career, and he's still capable of performing his duties. But would a CCM be possible? Could they simply transfer him over to Kingston to finish the rest of his IR and then to do his 18 week aciss training, and move me up and we can stay in a PMQ on base? But from what we've been able to gather, applying for a CCM can take a long time.

2) We could do a no cost move, and I just move up and live in Kingston myself. But a) that can be costly and it's money we don't have and b) I know that can cause issues later on when we get moved to a new post or something. Also we'd still be paying for me to live there which doesn't really help our financial issues.

3) We know that since he's at the Yukon lodge, spouses are allowed to visit. But for how long? Just a weekend? Or could I possibly stay with him for a few months and just travel back and forth to Kingston until his IR is all done?

4) He leaves the CF, we end our relationship, or we suck it up and deal with it.

I've only seen him for a few days since he first left for BMQ back in October. He's not been able to attend a single appointment, gone with me for any treatments, and he even had to miss my first surgery a couple weeks ago because he was in Meaford. He's tried repeatedly to go talk to the clerks to find out what he could do or to get help, and every time they say "come back tomorrow." I don't want to be the reason why he has to give up his career and his dream of being in the military, but we also don't want to have to sacrifice our marriage. We've been getting a lot of "Leave the CF or leave your wife, you can't have both" and "Suck it up" mentality from friends and family. I wish it were that simple. I didn't choose to become sick. We're really hoping option 1 or 3 is a possibility, and we're wondering how he can go about resolving this? Any help would be appreciated.

Under 30 days is the rule, IIRC.

Is that simply because after 30 days we wouldn't be considered separated and then we'd lose SA? Or is it just that we can't be together longer than 30 days until he's done training? We don't care if we lose out on SA, if it meant a lot of our other issues would get resolved.

Well, there is no SA anymore, but yep, if you're there more than 30 days, you are not considered "separate" anymore, hence the loss of IR benefits.

what IR benefits is he getting? As far as he knows, he's not aware of getting any benefits except that he doesn't have to pay the $30 a night for staying at the lodge lol so if I were to stay there with him past the 30 days, he'd have to start paying per night?

I realise that this thread has had no activity for roughly 3 months, but this line caught my attention.  If your husbands home is with you in Halifax, and he was in Trenton on course, then his Rations & Quarters should be paid for him as he has to maintain his primary residence back home in Halifax where you are.  I am writing this so you can go back to his Unit clerk and ask them to look into this for a ration remit claim. 

I know when I went on a 3 month course to CFB Borden from my home base of CFB Petawawa, my rations and quarters while in Borden was covered as I was maintaining my primary residence in Pet.  Food for thought anyway.  He could end up getting a nice chunk of change back if there was an oversight that had him paying for his rations.

Wrong.  The OP's spouse is posted to Trenton, not on course.  He has to pay for rations but not quarters.

There is the option to move from Halifax to somewhere within Trenton's approved duty area, that is close enough to Kingston to allow you to attend appointments, etc...  If your husband has been in Trenton less than two years, I believe you should still qualify for a posting-related move so a CCM might not be required at all.  Perhaps have your husband confirm with 8 Wing what the approved duty area for home locations is, and determine if there's an option to live further East towards Kingston.  Lots of folks living in Belleville and some in Napanee (20 min from Kingston).  Potential solution, but needs to be checked out. 

CCMs in general are difficult to get approved as the conditions associated with them often preclude approval.  The biggest factor often is that the condition for which the CCM is being requested must be considered to be resolvable within the remainder of the normal period of the member's posting.  Spousal medical conditions of a persistent or lasting nature (I didn't see it specifically mentioned in your original post) that would reasonably be expected to extend beyond the posting duration would likely not support approval of a CCM.  If your husband has been posted to Trenton for more than two years and the move entitlement associated with that posting is no longer valid and your medical condition is of a permanent/lasting nature whereby a CCM would likely not be approved, then you both may need to give consideration to applying for compassionate status.  There is a danger that if a condition that was believed to be resolvable and thus a CCM was approved, turns out to extend beyond the period of the approved CCM, then consideration could be given by the Forces for commencement of an administrative review to determine if compulsory release might be considered.

Your husband should speak with his supervisor/chain-of-command and the Wing orderly room to determine the implications of requesting a CCM.

Reference should include familiarizing yourselves with the Defence Administration Order and Directive (DAOD) 5006-3 - Contingency Cost Moves for Personal Reasons, Compassionate Status and Compassionate Posting.

The Crown will pay for a Contingency Cost Move. From your perspective, it will be funded like any other move.

CCM Posting...If you got it how long did it take?
« Reply #31 on: May 30, 2017, 10:46:50 »
Hello, I have submitted a CCM I have been informed that everything has been supported and is at the DGMC, DSA or D Mil C step in the request process.  I was wondering if you received this type of posting how long did it take for everything to be said and done?

Once the request is approved, D Mil C will cut a posting message and everything then proceeds just like any other move.
