2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Direct Access & WebNow Systems Maintenance Scheduled

  1. This announces necessary preparations in advance of a scheduled period of limited availability to Direct Access. This is required to support mandatory system security updates for the Coast Guard's Human Capital Management system.
  2. At 1900 EST, Thursday, 25 February 2021, availability to Direct Access will be limited to only those users who will be performing tasks associated with security update. Direct Access will be reactivated at 0600 EST, Saturday, 27 February 2021. This limited availability is necessary to avoid the submission of self-service and Servicing Personnel Office (SPO) transactions that potentially conflict with legislative and regulatory changes.
  3. This will impact all Active Duty, Reservists, Retirees, Annuitants, and civilian supervisors of military members. During this time frame, access to self-service for all users will be unavailable. This means no login access, including no ability to submit absence requests, no processing of pay or separation transactions and no processing of orders to include Reserve IDT, ADT, etc.
  4. Following the update, the logon access to Direct Access will remain the same; however the Universal Resource Locator (URL) will change upon reactivation on 27 February 2021. Anyone who accesses the previous URL will be directed to the new URL via the home page. It is recommended that any web browser favorites are updated with the new URL to ensure quick and easy access moving forward. The updated links will also be available at the Pay and Personnel Center's website, located at: https://www.dcms.uscg.mil/ppc/pd/da/.
  5. In addition to the Direct Access URL's being updated, the WebNow URL will also be updated as a part of this security update. It is recommended that any web browser favorites are updated with the new URL to ensure quick and easy access moving forward. The WebNow URL will also be available at the Pay and Personnel Center's website, located at: https://www.dcms.uscg.mil/ppc/pd/da/.
  6. Due to the short duration and work associated with this limited access period, there will not be a capability to provide access to members outside those testing and implementing the CAP.

Issuance of Form DD-214 to Reserve Component Members

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

If you are not already aware, Change 3 to Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214/5 Series), DoDI 1336.01, was released January 2019.  One big change is in Enclosure 3, Article 2.d.(1) stating "Reserve Component personnel ordered to active duty for a contingency operation for a period greater than 30 days will be issued a DD Form 214."  This is a change from the previous edition where we were supposed to issue a DD-214 regardless of the number of days they were on a contingency.

Going forward, all CONTINGENCY reserve orders with an END date on or before 1/22/2019 will be issued a DD-214 regardless of the number of active duty days served.  All CONTINGENCY reserve orders with an END date on or after 1/23/2019 will only be issued a DD-214 if they served 31 days or more of consecutive active duty.

Reserve active duty orders not in support of a contingency remains unchanged.  A DD-214 will only be issued for non-contingency orders if the member has served 90 days or more of consecutive active duty.  Back-to-back reserve orders with no break in active duty will be combined.
