IG Complaint Submission
Before you begin to file your complaint with the Command Inspector General, there are a few things for you to consider.  This office is established to assist you with your complaint if possible.  However, if you fall into one of the categories below then this may not be the most direct way to resolve your issue.  Please read carefully to determine if you can save yourself some time by making the correct choice.
1.  If you have contacted a member of Congress prior to filing this complaint then please continue to pursue that avenue of redress.  The Inspector General’s office can not duplicate the process that has already been initiated by a member of Congress.  Please continue to lodge your complaint with your point of contact within the appropriate congressional office.
2.  If you are no longer on active duty, then the Inspector General is not able to assist you in correcting your records. The appropriate agency that has been established to facilitate your request is the Board for Correction of Naval Records.  They are the only office that has the authority to impact any change to your Official Military Personnel File.
3.  If you are requesting assistance with dependant/former dependant financial support then please follow this link to contact the DEERS/Dependency Section of Manpower (MRP-1).  That office is specifically designed to aid people seeking redress from nonsupport of a Marine.  If you have a court order for financial support then you will be required to provide that and other documentation as necessary in order to qualify for assistance.  Otherwise, the DEERS/Dependency Section will ensure that the military member is compliant with Marine Corps Order P5800.16A
