7/26/2010 - DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. -- Reservists are now eligible to participate in Microsoft's Software Assurance Home Use Program, which enables reservists to purchase a licensed copy of most Microsoft Office desktop applications to install and use for a home computer.

Under the HUP, reservists who use qualifying applications at work, such as Office Enterprise, may acquire a copy of the corresponding HUP software to install and use on a home computer. Members may continue using the HUP software while serving in the Reserve and as long as the corresponding software used at work has active Software Assurance coverage.

Reservists must know that some product and language versions may not be immediately available at the time an order is placed. To keep track of up-to-date information on the availability of HUP software, visit http://microsoft.com/licensing.

To access the Microsoft HUP website:
  • Go to http://hup.microsoft.com/. Select the country to which the order should be shipped to. Then choose the language for viewing the order Web page.
  • Enter the correct work e-mail address and insert the program code supplied by the member's group client support technician.
  • Place the order online and it will be shipped to the member's chosen location. There will be a fulfillment fee to cover packaging, shipping and handling costs. 
  • After the order has been placed, it will be shipped to the Airman's chosen location. The site allows the option to select download for the discount price and under Other Products the option to purchase the Backup DVD.
For program codes, Liberty Wing Airmen should contact their group CST. For questions or additional information, contact Lucille Green, software benefit administrator, Air Force Reserve Command Headquarters at (478) 327-1562.
