Do I have to attend NEO?
-You must attend NEO to be fully in-processed. Applicants who fail to attend NEO will not be considered employees of the Colorado National Guard and will not receive benefit or pay until they are in-processed in HRO.
I don't have access to a printer, do I need to complete all these forms before NEO?
-We ask all employees to complete their packets before they arrive. We will help as much as possible to accommodate where needed. However the longer we take during the NEO briefing the less time you have to get computer access and less time for us to submit your pay packets and return to your unit.
What do I need to bring to NEO?
-You will need to bring all of the essential forms listed on this site as well as the pay packet for your branch. If you do not bring the pay packet you will need to bring a void check. To verify your eligibility for employment it is important to bring two forms of ID. These include a passport OR a driver's license/DOD CAC AND birth certificate/social security card. Failure to provide these documentations within 3 days could results in your termination.
When will I get paid?
-If your pay packet was complete and correct and submitted in a timely manner, you should see your first LES within 3 weeks.
Can I bring snack and a drink?
-Please do! This is the start of your new career and we want it to be a great experience for you. So please bring drinks and snacks if you want. However we recommend you leave the 7 course meal for later.
I've been through NEO recently, do I still need to come to the briefing?
-Even if you were already a Temporary Technician or Prior Federal Service, if you've had at least a 1 day break you must re-inprocess. The reason for this is that the system automatically drops your information the day after your last day of employment. Therefore we must re-build you into the system.
