Air Force officials to launch myPers

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Air Force officials are launching a new name for online personnel services and human resources knowledge: myPers.

Rebranding the Air Force Personnel Services website, previously known as AFPERS, requires more than just a flip of the switch. Members of the Air Force Personnel Center are in the process of addressing all IT and knowledge updates to ensure a smooth transition.

“The Air Force has made tremendous strides in providing world-class, online personnel services to our total force,” said Debra Warner, the Air Force’s Personnel Service Delivery Transformation chief. “Rebranding AFPERS to myPers is another step in the right direction. Our website delivers reliable, integrated and secure information technology to improve personnel services accessibility and usability,”

The myPers naming convention mirrors the myPay model that Department of Defense service members and civilians are familiar with and use to access their Leave and Earnings Statements, W-2s and Thrift Savings Plan information.

“The Air Force continues to fundamentally shift the way personnel services are provided, from primarily face-to-face interactions to a tiered model with services delivered through online self-service, the Total Force Service Centers and fewer in-person interactions,” said Lt. Col. John Silverman, the Air Force Personnel Center’s knowledge operations chief. “Airmen can view myPers from home and access personnel information from any computer.”
