State Active Duty

About State Active Duty

When the Governor calls on the National Guard, Alaska State Defense Force, or Naval Militia to respond to a disaster or other emergency, the state is obligated to compensate members of the Guard or Militia for the time spent in state active duty. Members are called by their command, orders are written and delivered to DAS. DAS calculates the pay earned based on statute and federal compensation rates. This calculation is controlled by AS 26.05.260.

You should read it carefully to make sure that you know both your rights and your responsibilities. Workers compensation is a program that requires your employer to provide medical benefits, disability benefits and re-employment benefits if you are injured, or become ill, where the injury or illness is caused by the work you performed for your employer. In cases involving fatalities, dependents may be eligible for death benefits.
