Estimated Earnings During Military Service for Federal Employees Only:

Public Law 97-253 requires us to provide estimated basic pay earned by federal employees for military service performed on 1 January 1957 and later. Any service performed prior to 1 January 1957 is automatically credited. These requests are commonly referred to as, "Catch 62's". PPC verifies only your Coast Guard service. If you have served in another branch of the service, you will have to go to that particular branch to receive your estimated earnings. Completion of an Estimated Earnings During Military Service can take up to 90 days.

Required Documentation:

In order for us to process these requests we will need the following documents:

  1. The Request for Estimated Earnings During Military Service worksheet (This link will open the PDF format form).
  2. A copy of your DD-214 or equivalent form. (For Reservists, if you don't have a copy of your DD-214 for Active Duty performed then you will have to provide copies of your endorsed paid orders (front and back) for any Active Duty performed).

We cannot provide estimated earnings UNLESS VERIFICATION OF SERVICE IS ATTACHED.

You may submit your request via mail or email (attachments must be in Adobe "PDF" file format):
