Q: How does this impact PCS moves?
New Accessions: Airmen being accessed into the Regular Air Force are authorized travel in accordance with Basic Military Training and Technical Training Student/Graduate Travel guidelines. Graduates with assignments to Level 3 COVID-19 locations will be diverted. AETC will continue recruiting and accessing Airmen, OTS and ROTC will continue as well as ACSC, AWC, and Advanced Air and Space Studies. Normal PCS entitlements apply; status quo.
Members who have PCS’d to Scott but are on restriction of movement (isolated or quarantined after arrival at the new Permanent Duty Station (PDS) and before TLE begins) may receive the standard PCS Per Diem Rates.
If a member is quarantined upon arrival, the date arrived station for the PCS voucher will be the actual date of arrival. The sign in date to the unit will also be the date of arrival. See TLE section for explanation of entitlements while on restriction of movement.
PCS Placed on Hold--PCS Entitlements: For Service Members who were supposed to PCS and have been ordered to remain in place, have out-processed/have not out processed and shipped HHG and/or terminated their lease, etc., they and dependents may be entitled to the standard PCS Per Diem Rates.
Continued PCS—PCS Entitlements: Personnel who have already initiated CONUS-to-CONUS (to include AK, HI and U.S. territories) travel as well as OCONUS-to-CONUS or CONUS-to-OCONUS travel to Level 2 COVID locations may continue travel so long as there is no travel to a Level 3 COVID location. Concurrent travel to OCONUS COVID-19 Level 2 locations is NOT authorized. In most cases, so long as the Service member and dependents are in an “awaiting transportation” status, standard PCS Per Diem Rates are authorized.
Standard PCS per diem rates are $151 per day: Members receive 100% entitlement, spouses and dependents over 12 years old receive 75% and dependents under 12 years old receive 50%. Members must maintain all lodging receipts in order to receive the full standard per diem allowance.
Members will not be charged PCS leave unless member goes over travel days after stop order is lifted or arriving members go over travel days after restriction of movement is lifted.
PCS Memo in lieu of amendments: Work with 375 FSS (375FSS.Outbound.Assingments@us.af.mil) to amend all PCS orders with the PCS Memo In lieu of amendments for outbound members. Inbound members will contact 375FSS.FORCEMANAGEMENT@us.af.mil. This memo will include details of the members quarantine dates, out-processing date for members held in place, and the date household goods were picked up prior to the stop movement.
Q: How does this impact deployments?
A: Airmen – military and civilian – who are tasked to deploy will continue preparing for their respective deployment; preparation includes all pre-deployment activities such as processing and training, and applies to all operating forces, including voluntarily and involuntarily activated Reserve Component members. For more, see: www.afpc.af.mil/Home/Coronavirus/
Q: What about my HHG pickup?
A: As of 2 April the following guidance applies to all HHGs moves:
USN/USCG: no current restrictions.
USA/USAF/USMC: Military and civilian PCS moves are at an All Stop until 11 May 2020, IAW SECDEF’s Stop Movement Order, dated 13 March 2020. Stop Movement of all international travel is in effect until 24 May 2020, IAW SECDEF’s MOD 01 TO REVISION 01, dated 24 Mar 2020.
For members affected by the Stop Movement, there are some exceptions that might allow for movement (primarily, a GO endorsed movement request).
Each branch has different requirements for local hardships, and temporary measures may be approved by squadron commander, (equivalent) that may allow partial movement options for a member’s HHGs only.
The Personal Property Processing Office (PPPO) is currently processing shipment requests virtually for moves outside the Stop Movement windows. When submitting your move request please provide a pick up/pack date after 15 May for CONUS shipments and for OCONUS shipments after 24 May 2020; per USTRANSCOM PP Advisory #20-0058C dated 27 Mar 2020.
Questions or concerns about the above info may be addressed to the 375 LRS PPPO team at 375LRS.SCOTTAFB.PersonalProperty@us.af.mil or visit move.mil for more information.
Due to the possibility of Airmen being placed into Lodging immediately upon arrival, units can start the application process for inbound Airmen who might need a Gov’t Travel Card (GTC) once they arrive. To expedite this process, unit Agency Program Coordinators (APC) are authorized to initiate the Travel Card 101 training using the stand alone slides at the link below and the Statement of Understanding (SOU) via conference call. Units should advise their Airmen to use a unit mailing address and to request the card to be expedited.
Using the CITI Commercial Cards Website below, applicants will select Apply For Card, and begin the application by selecting invitational pass code. This pass code will be provided by the unit APC. After quarantine or the member has completed their temporary lodging stay (for Temporary Lodging Expense [TLE] purposes), the Travel Card 101 training and SOU must be accomplished in accordance with current policies and procedures provided below.

Cancelling an authorization:
You are expected to review your leave and earnings statement (LES) on a regular basis to ensure the accuracy of your pay and allowances, file travel vouchers on a timely basis [within 5 duty days], and use the government travel card (GTC) for authorized purchases only. REF: AFI 1-1, para 2.8
Persons who receive a payment erroneously from the Government acquire no right to the money. They are bound in equity and good conscience to make restitution. If a benefit is bestowed by mistake, no matter how careless the act of the Government may have been, the recipient must make restitution. In theory, restitution results in no loss to the recipient because the recipient received something for nothing. REF: DoDI 1340.23, Enclosure 4, p. 8.
Comptroller General's Decision B-191813 - NEGLIGENT OR ERRONEOUS ACTS: A member's pay and allowances are governed by the applicable statutes and regulations. Therefore, erroneous information supplied by government officers, agents, or employees cannot serve as a basis for payment of pay or allowances in excess of a member's entitlements. REF: Staff Sergeant Daniel J. Scott, USAF, B-191813, July 6, 1978.
The fact that an erroneous payment is solely the result of administrative error or mistake on the part of the Government is not sufficient basis in and of itself for granting a waiver [or remission]. The recipient has a duty to notify an appropriate official and to set aside the funds for eventual repayment to the Government, even if the Government fails to act after such notification. REF: DoDI 1340.23, Enclosure 4, p. 8
USC Title 10 - Sections 2774 & 9837 – (Website here)
If you do not have a valid reason to file a Remission/Waiver per the regulations, please coordinate with your Servicing Finance Office to repay the debt in full if possible via payroll deductions or check payment through the disbursing cage (IAW AFMAN 65-116, Chap 69, para 69.1). Return the Debt Letter by the established due date to your Servicing Finance Office; otherwise, payroll deductions will be initiated to collect the debt in full.
If you are suffering from a financial hardship, please work with our office to coordinate a longer repayment schedule.
To speed up the processing time of lump sum collections and ensure timely collection, we highly recommend selecting payroll deduction over check payment.
If you did not receive a debt notification letter, please contact our office via the avenues detailed in the CPTS SERVICES section.
Debt notification letters will present the following options.
- Payment in full by Check.
- Payment by Salary Offset. (Must select one option below):
- Single Payment. Total amount of the debt deducted from salary during the month of ______________. (must select current month or next month)
- Multiple Payments at 15% of Disposable Pay. Debt will not be recouped all at once.
- Multiple Payments at More than 15% of Disposable Pay. Debt will not be recouped all at once. Amount deducted will be $___________ each pay period. (must provide dollar amount)
WHEN TO FILE A REMISSION OR WAIVER:
A Remission is filed to request partial or full remittance of a member's indebtedness incurred while the member was serving on active duty if it is considered to be in the best interest of the United States.
- Please note a debt will only be remitted or canceled upon a finding that the debt creates an injustice, an inequitable situation, or that its collection would result in undue hardship and that remission is in the best interest of the United States (AFI 36-3034 from Title 10, 2774). You must read through the 36-3034 to validate that your reason for filing is substantive. The regulation walks through types of indebtedness that will rarely be approved in Section 3.
A Waiver is filed to request a debt be waived due to erroneous payment of pay and allowances including travel or transportation allowance if recovery is determined to be against equity and good conscience and not in the best interest of the United States. Debt collection cannot be suspended while waiting for waiver approval.
Note: You can file a Remission and then a Waiver if the Remission is denied. However, you cannot file a Remission if you file the Waiver first.
A completed package includes: DD Form 2789, Waiver / Remission of Indebtedness Application, Section I, with your Commander's endorsement and signature in blocks 20 - 22 (not optional), AF Form 2451 Financial Statement Remission of Indebtedness (only if claiming hardship), Remission Checklist and all supporting documentation. If the completed package is not returned within 30 business days, payroll deductions will be initiated.

Once the debt is fully generated in the system and stamped by DFAS, a debt letter will be sent from our office to inform you that you are indebted to the United States Air Force. The debt letter will include the gross amount of your overpayment, the suspense date, payment options, and a 9-digit Transaction ID that can be used for Pay.gov payments.
Payment of Your Debt:
Please pay the debt in full no later than 30 days from initial notification. You can submit your payment(s) electronically from your bank account, debit card, or credit card through
https://www.pay.gov/public/form/start/64632045 (9-digit Transaction ID required).
If you are unable to pay the debt in one lump sum, you may agree in writing to pay the debt in regular installments by completing the Voluntary Repayment Agreement and submitting them to our office via the avenues detailed in the CPTS SERVICES section.
If completing the Voluntary Repayment Agreement, it must be returned before the 30-day deadline or collection action will be started automatically. The Department of Defense Financial Management Regulation (DoD FMR) contains general information concerning debt collection authority at Volume 16, Chapters 1-4.
If You are Unable to Pay Your Debt:
If you do not repay the debt in full, or do not submit a Voluntary Repayment Agreement within 30 days from the date of the letter, our office must collect the debt using other collection procedures. Beginning on day 31, our office will initiate collection of the debt involuntarily from your pay by using salary offset procedures (payroll deductions). A maximum of 15% of your net disposable pay will be deducted each pay period until your debt is paid in full. The salary offset amount may fluctuate each pay period depending on your available net disposable pay.
If you retire or resign before your debt is paid in full, the entire amount of your final pay (salary, allowances, lump-sum payments, and leave sell) will be withheld from you and applied to pay off your debt. If you file for bankruptcy, you are required to notify our office as soon as possible. Failure to notify our office will result in further collection of pay until we are officially notified.
Opportunities Available to You:
You have the right to inspect and/or receive copies of the record related to your debt. If you have questions regarding the debt, please contact your unit ODTA for assistance. If they are unable to assist, please have your unit ODTA reach out to the Scott DTS Helpline.
You may request a review by Finance if you question the validity or amount of the debt or contest the involuntary repayment schedule. Finance will provide you with a written response to your request for a review of the debt within 60 calendar days.
You may contact our office to request corrections, or changes, to your pay record if you have additional documents to support the payment you received.
You may file for a Waiver using DD Form 2789, Waiver/Remission of Indebtedness Application. Please submit completed waiver application to the local Finance Office for review and submission. By submitting an application for a Waiver, you acknowledge that you do not intend to dispute the validity or amount of the debt. This process is for Active Duty Military, Civilians and Military members not on Title 10 at the time the debt was incurred.
You may file for a Remission, using DD Form 2789, Waiver/Remission of Indebtedness Application, from the Secretary of the Air Force through the SAFRB process. Submit your remission application to the local Finance Office for review and submission. IAW AFI 36-3034, Remission of Indebtedness, the SECAF is authorized to remit or cancel any part of the indebtedness of a person to the United States Air Force incurred while serving on Title 10 active duty as a member of the Air Force, if the SECAF considers such action to be in the best interest of the United States. You may request that your debt be remitted or canceled on the basis of hardship, injustice or both. Applicants who have previously applied for a waiver and received a decision on the merits of the waiver, are not eligible for a remission.
You will be refunded any amounts you have previously paid or that were deducted for your debt which are later waived/remitted or found not to be owed to the United States.
