Extended Military Benefits

EMBP was created to help ease financial disruption for City employees and their families which may be caused by long-term military duty connected with the events of September 11, 2001.

Extension of EMBP Benefits for COVID-19: On March 22, 2020, the President issued a memorandum authorizing under 32 U.S.C. § 502 (f) the Secretary of Defense to request the Governor to order the National Guard to perform missions in support of emergency and assistance efforts in connection with COVID-19 operations. The Executive Order (EO) directs military operations that explicitly or by implication are connected with homeland security. The EO therefore triggered the obligation of the City to supplement military pay with City pay to City employees called up for National Guard duty related to the COVID-19 emergency to the extent that the gross salary exceeds military pay.
