Benefits Of ITIL Change Management

May 23, 2011. Harri Daniel. Comments Off on Benefits Of ITIL Change Management

Benefits of ITIL Change Management

ITIL signifies Information Technology Infrastructure and it is a book series and also training manuals, which outline and clarify the most useful practices in IT. Effective ITIL Change Management protects both the business services and facilitates easy changes without the unnecessary control or bureaucracy. It could ultimately be described like change enablement. Here is a close look at benefits of ITIL Change Management.

1. Better change implementation
The ITIL Change Management is aimed at lessening risks of impact, exposure as well as disruption to business services. It allows first time implementation of changes and therefore saves both money and time. Actually, the value and importance of efficient ITIL Change Management practices to both the business and IT department cannot be exaggerated. Furthermore, it also offers the benefit of absorbing large amounts of changes.

2. Improves problem management
By using ITIL Change Management, a business will likely notice great improvements in availability and problem management. This is because they are capable of using valuable management data relating to all the changes accumulated through the process of ITIL Change Management.

3. Boosts productivity
ITIL Change Management offers the advantage of increasing the productivity of employees through providing high quality services and less disruption. The other method that productivity is enhanced is through reducing the number of crucial changes as well as the back-out linked to erroneous changes. Moreover, any back-outs are done more effectively and efficiently.

4. Improves assessment
ITIL Change Management enhances the assessment of various crucial factors. Besides improving risk assessment, it also improves the assessment of costs of any suggested adjustments before they can be implemented. This reduces the adverse effect of adjustments on the service quality.
A possible problem that may arise when using ITIL Change Management is that it may over-stretch the employees and thus cause business delays, which can be very costly.

Additional VA Life Insurance: Veterans’ Special Life Insurance (Korean War Program)

The Insurance Act of 1951 established a program to meet the insurance needs of Korean War service personnel and veterans. During this period, all service members on active duty were covered by $10,000 of free insurance under a program known as Servicemen’s Indemnity .

They remained covered under Servicemen’s Indemnity for 120 days after their discharge. Newly discharged veterans could then apply for Veterans Special Life Insurance (VSLI) which was renewable term insurance. The VSLI program was closed to new issues at the end of 1956. Effective January 1, 1959, VSLI term policies could be converted to permanent plans of insurance or exchanged for a limited convertible term policy. Today there are 181,000 policies still in force and the average age of policyholders is 75 years. Annual dividends are paid on these policies. The maximum face amount of a policy is $10,000. However, this limit does not include paid-up additional insurance which can be purchased with the annual dividends. Certain disability benefits are available under these policies for policyholders who become totally disabled before their 65 th birthday.

      Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (SGLI) – Life Insurance #va, #veterans #affairs, #ebenefits, #vba, #veterans


      Attention A T users. To access the menus on this page please perform the following steps. 1. Please switch auto forms mode to off. 2. Hit enter to expand a main menu option (Health, Benefits, etc). 3. To enter and activate the submenu links, hit the down arrow. You will now be able to tab or arrow up or down through the submenu options to access/activate the submenu links.

      Life Insurance

      Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (SGLI)

      SGLI is a program that provides low-cost term life insurance coverage to eligible Servicemembers. If eligible, you are automatically issued the maximum SGLI coverage. If you qualify for SGLI, you are automatically enrolled and do not need to apply for coverage.

      Servicemembers can make changes to your SGLI coverage. For example, Servicemembers can decline SGLI coverage, select a lesser amount than maximum coverage. designate beneficiaries, and/or make other changes.


      You are automatically insured under full-time SGLI if you are one of the following:

      • Active duty member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard
      • Commissioned member of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) or the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS)
      • Cadet or midshipman of the U.S. military academies
      • Member, cadet, or midshipman of the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) engaged in authorized training and practice cruises
      • Member of the Ready Reserve or National Guard and are scheduled to perform at least 12 periods of inactive training per year
      • Servicemember who volunteers for a mobilization category in the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR)


      SGLI coverage is available in $50,000 increments up to the maximum of $400,000. Covered members receive 120 days of free coverage from their date of separation. Coverage can be extended for up to two years if the Servicemember is totally disabled at separation. Part-time coverage is also provided to Reserve members who do not qualify for full-time coverage (members covered part-time do not receive 120 days of free coverage).

      If you are totally disabled at the time of separation (unable to work), you can apply for the SGLI Disability Extension. which provides free coverage for up to two years from the date of separation. At the end of the extension period, you automatically become eligible for VGLI, subject to premium payments.

      Ready Reserve or National Guard Members in Non-Pay Status

      You are generally still covered by SGLI if you are a member of the Ready Reserve or National Guard and are:

      • scheduled to perform at least 12 periods of inactive training per year, AND
      • are drilling for points, rather than pay.

      SGLI premium rates are the same as those drilling for pay. However, each branch of service handles payment of premiums during this non-pay period differently. If you are a drilling Reservist or Guard member in a non-pay status and have questions about whether you are covered by SGLI and how to pay your premiums, view our branch of service contact list for the number to call for information.


      If you have SGLI coverage, you pay a monthly premium that is automatically deducted from your base pay. The current basic SGLI premium rate is 7 cents per $1,000 of insurance. The premium includes an additional $1.00 per month for Traumatic Injury Protection coverage (TSGLI) .

      SGLI Premium Rates Effective July 1, 2014

      Converting SGLI to VGLI

      You must apply to convert SGLI to VGLI within one year and 120 days from discharge. Veterans who submit their application within 240 days of discharge do not need to submit evidence of good health, while those who apply more than 240 days after discharge are required to answer questions about their health. Follow this link to learn more about VGLI .

      Some medical conditions may make it difficult or even impossible to obtain private insurance. If you have any of these conditions, you should consider purchasing VGLI. Follow this link to learn more about medical conditions that may make you uninsurable. .

      Converting SGLI to Commercial Policy

      Servicemembers covered under the SGLI program have the option to convert their SGLI coverage to an individual policy of insurance within 120 days from the date of separation from the military. Learn more about converting to a commercial policy .

      Making Changes to SGLI Coverage

      If you qualify as eligible for SGLI, you are automatically enrolled and do not need to apply for coverage. However, to designate beneficiaries, or to reduce, decline, or restore SGLI coverage, use one of the following methods, depending on your branch of service:

      If you are in the Navy.

      You no longer need to use the SGLV 8286 to change your SGLI elections! You can now manage your Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (SGLI) coverage using the SGLI Online Enrollment System (SOES). SOES allows Servicemembers with full-time SGLI coverage to make fast and easy changes to their life insurance coverage and beneficiary information at any time without completing a paper form or making a trip to their personnel office. To access SOES, sign into www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect and go to the Benefits Tab, Life Insurance SOES- SGLI Online Enrollment System.

      SOES is expanding by uniformed service. For now, you must complete and submit the SGLI form SGLV 8286, Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance Election and Certificate. You should contact your Personnel Office for any changes to Basic SGLI or Family SGLI coverage. Follow this link to find out when your service is scheduled to begin using SOES .

      #business cars


      Tax on company benefits

      2. Tax on company cars

      You’ll pay tax if you or your family use a company car privately, including for commuting.

      You pay tax on the value to you of the company car, which depends on things like how much it would cost to buy and the type of fuel it uses.

      This value of the car is reduced if:

      • you have it part-time
      • you pay something towards its cost
      • it has low CO2 emissions

      If your employer pays for fuel you use for personal journeys, you’ll pay tax on this separately.

      Check or update your company car tax

      Tell HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC ) if your car or fuel details change. You can check or update your company car tax online. eg if:

      • you get a company car or give one back
      • your employer starts or stops paying for fuel for you to use personally

      If a change affects the value of the car, HMRC will update your tax code so you pay the right tax.
