NOTE: Army Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Navy Reserve, and Coast Guard Reserve continue to report CEI information through their respective service.
Yes, it’s mandatory.
We know that life in the National Guard can get busy. But don’t let that be the reason you don’t submit your Civilian Employer Information to the Department of Defense. Based on the information you submit annually, defense officials will know whom they can call to active duty without putting civilian jobs at risk.
Reporting your CEI not only influences your chances of being called to active duty, it is used to determine whether your unit or unit members should be mobilized, as well as to ensure that you aren’t on active duty beyond the time the Department of Defense needs you to serve. It also provides NGB Employer Support with information that can make helping you through employment issues much easier.
What happens if I don’t submit my CEI?
Again, submitting your CEI is mandatory! National Guard members who forget or refuse to submit their information (or submit false employment information) can get in trouble and be subject to administrative action or punishment (Article 92, Uniform Code of Military Justice). Moreover, if a business or public agency – like firehouses, hospitals, or police departments – must cope with multiple employees serving in the military at once, the impact on its local community could be quite great indeed.
The good news is that submitting CEI is getting easier. In ten short minutes, you can click through the entire forms process, with the added benefit of not having to think about it again for a year!
Here’s what you can expect to provide:
- Birth date
- Social Security Number
- Employer information (job title, employer address, contact information, etc.)
It’s secure, it’s easy, and it’s for your benefit.
