HR Core Competencies, Provide HR Services, Casualty Operations INFORMATION PAPER EAGA-PO 21 September 2012 SUBJECT: Emergency Notification REFERENCES: AR 600-8-1, Casualty Notification, Assistance, and Insurance, dated 30 April 2007 DD Form 93, Record of Emergency Data PURPOSE: The DD Form 93 is applicable for all Regular Army, Army National Guard and U. All Soldiers must complete a DD Form 93 to indicate whom they want notified should they become a casualty.

The DD Form 93 is the source document to notify family in case of an emergency, sickness or death.

The data collected includes emergency notification information, beneficiary data for certain benefits (i.e., death gratuity, arrears of pay, and allotments) should the Soldier become missing and disposition of remains (if the Soldier desires).

RESPONSIBILITIES: The Brigade S1 will monitor the submission and accuracy of Personnel data input for creating the DD Form 93 for Soldiers requiring a change to their DD Form 93.

After selection, the system will display the data related to the Soldier‘s PADD information.

The Soldier can then select the individual authorized to direct disposition of the Soldier‘s remains and enter the address with the zip and telephone number in the general remarks block. The Soldier must provide the necessary information for completing the DD Form 93. The user will digitally sign the DD Form 93 and it will be auto-uploaded into IPERMS for placement in the Soldier‘s OMPF. Emergency notification data cannot be added if the relationship of the individual to the Soldier is not a FAMILY MEMBER, unless that family member‘s data exists in the database.

Family member data may only be added to the database by updating the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS).

This function also allows the DD Form 93 to be digitally signed and automatically uploaded to IPERMS.

The DD Form 93, when completed and signed, becomes an official and legal document that designates the beneficiaries of certain benefits in the event the individual is in a missing status or deceased.
