AEP again enhances military pay make up for employees

by on November 12, 2014

AEP provides a pay differential for its employees in the Reserves and National Guard to attend mandatory training undertaken to maintain current military status. Recognizing recent changes in military training requirements, this reimbursement will no longer be subject to a limit of 10 days per year nor a one-year employment requirement.

The eligible training now includes weekend, or a series of weekends in addition to the week-long training previously included. It must occur during regularly scheduled work hours and work days to be considered for the differential. The pay differential will be equal to the difference between the military pay earned during the required training and the amount of the employee’s AEP annual base salary.

The revised policy became effective November 1, 2014.

“AEP is proud of our employees who serve in the military and appreciates the sacrifices they make for our country,” said Scott Smith, senior vice president – AEP Transmission Grid Development & Portfolio Services. “These benefit enhancements were made due to feedback from the AEP Military Veterans Employee Resource Group, and they add to the many ways that AEP supports its employees who must periodically participate in military training activities.”

AEP has approximately 1,882 employees who have served or are serving in the military out of its employee population of approximately 18,138.
