Your Coast Guard Military Human Resource Record (CGMHRR)

COMDTINST M1080.10 (series) outlines the policies and authorized content of your CGMHRR, which includes your Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). The CGMHRR Section is responsible for all Active-duty officer and enlisted and Reserve officer and enlisted CGMHRR records IAW NARA guidelines and USCG policy. 

The Coast Guard Military Human Resource Record (CGMHRR) documents your career, meets legal requirements, serves as the record to justify Human Capital Management (HCM) transactions, and answers audit questions while you are a member of the Coast Guard.  Your CGMHRR was composed by combining 3 geographically separated records:

1.The Servicing Personnel Office (SPO) Personnel Data Record (PDR) which was maintained by your assigned SPO, contained various documents about your career, and primarily functioned as the source document repository to justify your pay and benefits.

2.The UNIT PDR was maintained by your Unit and functioned as a “working” copy of your SPO PDR in situations where underway missions were too lengthy and distant.

3.The Electronically Imaged (EI) PDR was maintained by Head Quarters in an electronic system and functioned as your Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). 

On October 31st, 2022, the USCG delivered a federally compliant electronic records management system called the “interactive Personnel Electronic Records Management System” (iPERMS).  On November 29th, 2023, the USCG activated the Defense Personnel Records Information Retrieval System (DPRIS), which allows the Veteran’s Affairs Office direct access to view records retained in iPERMS.  On February 23, 2024, DPRIS also turned on the capability for veterans to access their CGMHRR though MILCONNECT.

PPC Customer Care (sharepoint-mil.us)

Customer Care Branch (CCB) provides:

Travel Approving Officials support for travel claims: Travelers will work directly with their AOs to complete claims, resolve errors, and obtain information regarding claim status, audits, supplemental claims, travel policy, or requests for explanation of travel payments. This change will provide the most rapid resolution of member travel issues, will improve AO/traveler communications and efficiency, will improve AO proficiency and expertise, and will reduce overall claim processing and reimbursement times. If travelers call PPC Customer Care directly for assistance, Customer Care will direct callers to contact their AO.  If an issue cannot be resolved at the AO level, the AO can submit an electronic ticket only that will go to PPC Travel. 


It really helps to include a screenshot or required documents when contacting us by email. This instruction provides how to attach information.

Servicing Personnel Office Auditors support for military HR/Pay issues: Customers are directed to contact their P&A Office for any errors or questions on pay and/or personnel issues.  If the P&A Office is unable to resolve it, the P&A Office is to contact the servicing SPO.  If the servicing SPO is unable to resolve the issues, the SPO will contact PPC. NOTE:  P&As that have transitioned under the PSI will work with the SPO as stated above. If they are unable to resolve the issues, the P&A Supervisor or SPO Payment Approving Official shall submit a ticket per the Task/Timeline attached to the Interim Technical Authority Guidance (PSCNOTE 5402). Customers should not be contacting PPC directly for any pay or personnel issues. We will continue to reroute inquiries directly from customers back to the serving SPO and contact the servicing SPO Chief to inform them that the ticket was rerouted. Some Trouble Tickets require specific information or formatting in order to be accepted and provide timely service. Be sure to include all the required information in the "Description of Problem/Request" section of the PPC Trouble Ticket email.
