Mob Manning - biz trip flight booked before date announced

Hi all,

My flight was booked before the mob Manning period was announced. What are the chances of getting a deferment?

Have you applied for deferment?

Yes. Waited for more than a week still no response.

Contact your PS, PC, OC directly if u can. They can help push for this issue other than from the official channel.

I informed my OC yesterday too, he said no update yet. I'm quite concern because it's an important work trip. Just trying to see if anyone was in a same situation and how it went.

Defer it via NS portal or let your OC/PC know asap. But no guarantees. Last time my friend had exams on a Sat, but they did not approve his deferment. But yours is a very valid reason.

Or TS may contact the unit's S8 or DYS8.

They are the one who deals with such matters directly.

The parameters you’ve shared are sound (so the approval should be fine). Your CO might be in a busy period (or other reasons), just be patient.

Also, your deferment might most likely excuse you only during your business trip period. You might still be liable for MOB manning outside of your business trip dates. Just double check the details once it has been pushed through to your side.

FYI, the approval is usually done by CO. S8 branch does the admin work. Since your OC already knows about this, you could ask him to help push for you.

Ts is asking to be excused for full duration of mob manning?

Biz trip duration covers full duration of mob manning?

I'm requesting to defer only for my biz trip period. Another reason I'm concern is because upon application, a prompt said if I don't receive a response, I'm required to show up. I find that quite unreasonable leh...

If u apply, say your biz trip cover only 10 days out of the manning period of 14 days, they cant let u siam the full 14 days one

At most excuse u for the 10 days
But cant pang chance u for day 11-14

When u submit to apply to be excused

If manning is due to start, chase your unit thrgh the proper chain of command to let u know lor

I think that's fully reasonable.

I have attached my flight bookings in my application. Do I need to ask my HR to write a letter?
