About Forms


This page lists Forms and Worksheets referenced in the Personnel and Pay Procedures Manual. These forms and worksheets are now published independently of the manual. This allows us to effect needed changes and updates without waiting for a published change to the manual.

This page also provides links to some frequently used forms from Other Government Agencies and Coast Guard (CG) forms.

Click on the form number. The form will open in Adobe Acrobat, fill in fields and print the form. PLEASE NOTE: Many people will try opening a PDF form and find that they get an error that says "Please wait."  This is not a problem with the form but has to do with the set-up of your computer's browser as the default for opening Adobe Acrobat forms.  Many computers use the web browser as the default for opening Adobe forms, but the browser cannot handle the macros built into the form. The simple solution to this problem is to save the form to your computer and then open the form in Acrobat DC. This allows full functionality.  Follow these instructions for opening the DD-2656 and other advanced PDF forms.

Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) forms: You need Adobe's free reader program to open Acrobat forms, visit the Adobe web site http://get.adobe.com/reader/ to download the program.

Printing Forms: If you experience any printing problems, please be sure you are using the printer icon (picture of a printer) in the Adobe Acrobat Reader tool bar and not the printer icon in the Internet Explorer tool bar.

CG-2020D Designation of Beneficiaries

Designation of Persons Authorized to Direct Disposition of Remains

Per the National Defense Authorization Act 2012 signed by the President on 31 Dec, the "Designation of Persons Authorized to Direct Disposition of Remains of Members of the Armed Services" (PADD) is now a "member-designated" benefit. As outlined in ALCOAST 427/08 only spouse, adult child, parent or adult sibling were allowed to be designated. If none were known or alive then any relative may have been designated, or finally, a close friend. The new law allows members to designate any person of choice.

No one is required to change any PADD designation as a result of the change in law or to update their form CG-2020D at this time. Existing PADD designations for someone other than a relative--which actually should not have been accepted at the time--will now be acceptable, no update needed. The change supports every Coast Guard member who has reason to designate a PADD other than a relative.

The Personnel Service Center (PSC) is in the process of updating the designation form and will be promulgating an ALCOAST once the revised form is approved.

Note: If a member has a spouse but designates a person other than the spouse to receive all or a portion of the death gratuity pay, the member's Commanding Officer is required to notify the spouse, in writing, about the designation. Here is a template (in MS Word format) for the Memo to notify the member's spouse.

Career Intentions Worksheet

Note: CG-Form 2045, Career Intentions Worksheet, has been updated to allow Command Approvers to electronically submit the approved form via email through a "Submit Button" at the bottom of the page. The new popup email automatically populates the Interservice Transfer Team's ISTT email address in the cc line providing them immediate notification of a member's intention to separate.   Giving them this visibility will provide for greater communication between the ISTT and a separating member helping them to understand all the benefits to affiliating with the Reserves after they separate.   

Note: Use the Submit button for final submissions only!  Command approvers will enter the email address for the Servicing Personnel Office for the unit in the "To" line of the message generated by the form. Do not submit unapproved forms to the Interservice Transfer Team.

  • DD 616,  Report of Return of Absentee (Replaces CG-2842)
  • *DD Form 794 CG, Discharge Under Other Than Honorable Conditions. (This is not a link, see *above)
  • DD Form 1299,  Application for Shipment and/or Storage of Personal Property
  • DD Form 1351-2,  Travel Voucher

  • DD Form 1351-3,  Statement of Actual Expenses
  • DD Form 1746, Application for Assignment to Housing
  • DD Form 2058,  State of Legal Residence Certificate. 

    General Residency Rules: The general rule is that legal residency is established when an individual is physically present in a state AND has the intent to permanently reside in the state.

    "Intention to permanently reside" can be shown through a combination of several factors: ownership of real property; registering to vote; registering a vehicle; obtaining a driver's license; and declaring of legal residency on legal documents (including DD Form 2058: State of Legal Residence Certificate). One of these factors by itself would probably not be enough to change residency, but if a service member moved to a state and registered to vote, bought a house, registered her car, obtained a new driver's license, and registered her children in the local schools, she would most likely be considered to be a resident of the new state. For example, if you were a legal resident of Delaware when you entered the Armed Forces, you remain a legal resident of Delaware for Delaware state income tax purposes unless you voluntarily abandoned your Delaware residency and established a new legal domicile in another state. A change in legal residence is documented by filing DD Form 2058 with your military personnel office.

USCG PPC does not process the SF 813.  Per the instructions on the form, the form must be sent to NPRC at the below address or submitted online at www.archives.gov
National Personnel Records Center
1 Archives Drive
St. Louis, MO  63138-1002
Be advised, CG members must allow 6 months after retirement date before submitting request to NPRC.

  • SF-1038,  Advance of Funds Application and Account
  • OF-1164, Claim for Reimbursement for Expenditures on Official Business


Note:  If you are in any uniformed service and you have full-time SGLI coverage; use the SGLI Online Enrollment System (SOES) (under the Benefits Tab, click Life Insurance SOES - SGLI Online Enrollment System.) to:

  • reduce or decline SGLI coverage
  • designate or update the beneficiary on a SGLI policy
  • restore or increase SGLI coverage when it has previously been reduced or declined
  • SGLV-8286,  Link to VA Site: SGLI Election And Certificate and other SGLI forms

    Note;: Please be sure to always use the most recent revision when completing new elections or changing beneficiary designations. Elections and designations completed using earlier editions of the SGLV-8286 remain valid. Members do not need to complete a new form if there are no changes to their elections or beneficiary designations.
  • SGLV-8286A,  Link to VA Site: SGLI Family Coverage Election and other FSGLI forms.

    Note: Per E-Mail ALSPO B/16, this form is only to be completed when a member is reducing coverage, declining coverage, increasing coverage, restoring coverage, or applying for coverage when member-married-to-member. This form is not required when a member, who is subject to automatic coverage, accepts the automatic coverage. 

    The form is not intended for use during annual validation or PCS reporting in where the purpose is to “continue” or “validate” previously existing coverage.  Completing the form unnecessarily during these circumstances creates confusion and frequently causes OSGLI to mistakenly deny coverage under the assumption that the member is applying for previously declined or reduced spouse coverage.
  • More SGLI and VGLI Forms

    The health-related questions (SGLV-8286, Item 4, About Your Health or SGLV-8286A, Part III - Spouse Information) on the forms are only required to be completed when the member has previously declined coverage or elected coverage for a reduced amount and wants to reinstate or increase coverage. Please refer to the Personnel and Pay Procedures Manual, for additional information on completing forms SGLV-8286 and SGLV-8286A.
