DIRECT ACCESS CHALLENGES

Our Pay and Personnel Center team members are users of Direct Access –just like you– and are similarly impacted by challenges with the system.  Though the Pay and Personnel Center does not own or control repairs to Direct Access, we continue to advocate with the Program Office to prioritize repairs and the C5I Service Center to conduct those repairs.  We appreciate your patience and grace during this time period.

In essence, Direct Access is our ship . . . and our ship is damaged and undergoing depot-level repairs.  The crew at the Pay and Personnel Center are just as eager for Direct Access to come back to fully mission capable, so we can better serve our Coast Guard families.

Note: The issue which was preventing the issuance of PCS orders and entitlements has been resolved.  If you continue to experience issues with your PCS orders or entitlements, the Pay and Personnel Center PCS Assist Team is standing by to assist (844-727-2022, PCSAssist@uscg.mil).

mLINQS ISSUE

USCG is still facing an issue in mLINQS with selecting the "assigned to" option from the drop-down menu and in the employee tab for certain states such as California, Ohio, Connecticut and Maryland. mLINQS has indicated that this is not a problem with the mLINQS software, but rather a browser settings issue with the Coast Guard (the settings are currently inaccessible to the average user and unit IT support). We are currently in communication with CG-9336 to resolve this issue as soon as possible.
