FINANCE PCS UPDATE
In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the 86th Comptroller Squadron is temporarily transitioning to a virtual platform for PCS In-Processing.
Starting 1 March 2021, all members will in-process with finance through e-Finance. E-Finance is an Air Force tool available through the Air Force Portal. It allows members to submit travel vouchers directly to the Comptroller Squadron for review.
This shift to e-Finance will eliminate the need for appointments and reduce wait times by allowing members to file their travel vouchers at any time from any location, as long as they have a computer with a CAC reader.
A comprehensive e-Finance user guide is available on the home page of the Comptroller Services Portal, under "knowledge articles". It is also available on the e-Finance website. To access the user guide from the website, click “PCS” in the top right-hand corner of the website. After you begin creating your voucher, the guide is available under the “Briefings” hyperlink.

Comptroller Services Portal
Finance is expanding service while adding transparency to the status of your question! Customer service inquiries for Military, Civilian, and Travel Pay can use the Air Force Comptroller Services Portal (CSP). Customers with questions going forward will be asked to input & submit through CSP.

Members will be prompted to create a user profile and make any necessary updates (2-3 minute process) before submitting their initial request. Customers can then submit, review, and track their requests anytime, anywhere.
