    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which person is not proper claimant under AFI 51-502, chapter 2?

    • A.

      An Air Force Academy cadet

    • B.

      A CAP cadet

    • C.

      Civilian employee at Laughlin AFB, TX

    • D.

      DODDS school teacher at Maxwell AFB, AL

    Correct Answer
    B. A CAP cadet
    Explanation
    A CAP cadet is not a proper claimant under AFI 51-502, chapter 2 because CAP cadets are not considered active duty military or civilian employees of the Air Force. AFI 51-502 outlines the procedures for filing claims against the Air Force, and it only applies to certain individuals such as Air Force Academy cadets, civilian employees at Air Force bases, and DODDS school teachers. Since CAP cadets are part of the Civil Air Patrol, which is a volunteer civilian auxiliary of the Air Force, they do not fall under the jurisdiction of AFI 51-502.

    • A.

    • D.

      Government-issued duffel bag lost by a civilian airline while on leave

    Correct Answer
    D. Government-issued duffel bag lost by a civilian airline while on leave
    Explanation
    The incident of a government-issued duffel bag being lost by a civilian airline while on leave is not payable under AFI 51-502, chapter 2. This is because the loss occurred while the individual was on leave and not in the performance of official duties. AFI 51-502 covers incidents related to privately owned vehicles (POV), household goods (HHG), and secured bicycles, but not personal belongings lost during personal travel.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Include the date of incident and exclude the date claim is filed

    Correct Answer
    C. Exclude the date of incident and include the date claim is filed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to exclude the date of incident and include the date the claim is filed. This means that when calculating the statute of limitations for a HHG claim, the date of the incident (when the claim arose) is not counted, but the date the claim is filed is included. This is important because it allows for a reasonable amount of time for the claimant to gather evidence, assess damages, and file the claim within the specified time frame.

    A settlement authority may completely deny a claim when

    • A.

      Fraud was intended

    • B.

      Fraud was inadvertent

    • C.

      The settlement authority suspects fraud

    • D.

    Explanation
    When the entire claim is substantially tainted by fraud, the settlement authority may completely deny the claim.

In such cases, the settlement authority has the right to reject the claim entirely, as it cannot be considered legitimate due to the presence of fraud.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    If a civilian employee is injured incident to his or her government employment, his or her exclusive remedy lies under

    • A.

      FTCA

    • B.

      FMCRA

    • C.

      FECA

    • D.

      MPCECA

    FECA stands for the Federal Employees' Compensation Act. This act provides compensation and benefits to civilian employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their government employment. It is the exclusive remedy for such employees, meaning that they cannot seek compensation through other avenues such as filing a lawsuit. Therefore, if a civilian employee is injured incident to his or her government employment, their exclusive remedy would be under FECA.

    • B.

      30

    • C.

      40

    • D.

      50

    Correct Answer
    A. 20
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 20. This means that if a claimant decides to hire an attorney to handle their claim, the attorney fee limit for administrative settlements under FTCA (Federal Tort Claims Act) should not exceed 20% of the settlement amount. This ensures that the claimant does not have to pay an excessive amount in attorney fees and can retain a larger portion of the settlement for themselves.

    Explanation
    If a claim under the FTCA cannot be settled at the base office level, it must be sent to the next higher settlement authority within a maximum of 120 days after receipt. This means that if the initial office is unable to reach a settlement agreement within this time frame, the claim must be escalated to a higher authority for further review and resolution.

This is important because NAFI (Non-Appropriated Funds Instrumentality) is responsible for handling claims related to AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service). By forwarding the claim to NAFI, the paralegal ensures that the appropriate department receives the claim and can take the necessary steps to address it. This step is crucial in initiating the claims process and ensuring that it is handled by the appropriate entity.

    • C.

      Forward the file to AFLOA/JACC

    • D.

      Do nothing; final denial procedures end at base level

    Correct Answer
    C. Forward the file to AFLOA/JACC
    Explanation
    After recommending denial of an appeal under MCA, you must forward the file to AFLOA/JACC. This is the correct answer because AFLOA/JACC is responsible for reviewing and making final decisions on appeals under the Military Construction Appropriation (MCA) process. Therefore, once the recommendation for denial is made, the file needs to be sent to AFLOA/JACC for further review and finalization of the denial procedures.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

    Once AFLO/JACC has resolved the claim, the investigation file should be destroyed. This is to ensure that sensitive and confidential information is properly disposed of and to maintain data security. Keeping the file for two years or forwarding it to AFCSC or TCFSC would not be necessary or appropriate in this case.

    Rate this question:

      Forward the request to AFLOA/JACC

    • D.

      Forward the request to the MAJCOM SJA

    Correct Answer
    C. Forward the request to AFLOA/JACC
    Explanation
    If you receive an FOIA or PA request for a claim adjudicated by AFLOA/JACC, you must immediately forward the request to AFLOA/JACC. This is because AFLOA/JACC is the office responsible for adjudicating the claim, so they would have the necessary information and documents to respond to the request appropriately. Forwarding the request to any other office, such as the NAF SJA or MAJCOM SJA, would not be the correct course of action as they would not have the relevant information to handle the request.

      Collection action must be complete, or suit filed in State Court

    • B.

      Collection action must be complete, or suit filed in Counrty Court

    • C.

      Collection action must be complete, or suit filed in Supreme Court

    • D.

      Collection action must be complete, or suit filed in Federal District Court

    Correct Answer
    D. Collection action must be complete, or suit filed in Federal District Court
    Explanation
    In order to toll the statute of limitations for a pro-government claim, the collection action must be complete, or a suit must be filed in Federal District Court. This means that either the collection process must be finished, or a lawsuit must be initiated in the Federal District Court to suspend the time limit for filing the claim. Filing a suit in any other court, such as State Court, Country Court, or Supreme Court, would not have the same effect on tolling the statute of limitations for a pro-government claim.

This organization is responsible for overseeing and managing legal operations and claims within the Air Force.

    Correct Answer
    D. Forward the file to AFLOA/JACC
    Explanation
    After a tortfeasor fails to respond to two demand letters, the next step for the SJA (Staff Judge Advocate) would be to forward the file to AFLOA/JACC (Air Force Legal Operations Agency/Judge Advocate Coordination Cell). This suggests that AFLOA/JACC is the appropriate authority to handle the case further, possibly involving legal action or other necessary steps.

    • A.

      Commissary

    • B.

      Golf facilities

    • C.

      American Red Cross

    • D.

      Air Force Air Society

    Correct Answer
    B. Golf facilities
    Explanation
    Golf facilities are considered an NAFI, which stands for Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentality. NAFIs are organizations that are not funded by taxpayer dollars but generate their own revenue through services provided to military personnel and their families. Golf facilities on military bases often fall under the category of NAFIs as they operate independently and generate revenue through golf course fees and other related services.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    When there is doubt as to wether an NAFI claim should be paid from appropriated or nonappropriated funds, how should an advance payment be made to prevent a hardship on a claimant?

    • A.

      Approve the claim, but defer the payment

    • B.

      Defer the entire claim until the correct funding source is determined

    • C.

      Initially pay from appropriated funds and determine the correct funding source later

    • D.

      Initially pay from nonappropriated funds and determine the correct funding source later

    Correct Answer
    C. Initially pay from appropriated funds and determine the correct funding source later
    Explanation
    In order to prevent hardship on the claimant, the best approach is to initially pay from appropriated funds and then determine the correct funding source later. This ensures that the claimant receives the payment in a timely manner, without having to wait for the funding source to be determined. By deferring the payment or deferring the entire claim, the claimant may face financial difficulties, which is not ideal. Therefore, the most appropriate solution is to use appropriated funds for the initial payment and then resolve the funding source issue afterwards.

    • D.

The other options, AFCSC, TCFSC, and NAFI, are not specified as the correct department for processing payments for claims of this amount. Therefore, AFSVA/SVXBC is the most suitable choice.
