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.
â€œThe Air Force has made tremendous strides in providing world-class, online personnel services to our total force,â€ said Debra Warner, the Air Forceâ€™s Personnel Service Delivery Transformation chief. â€œRebranding 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,â€
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.
â€œThe 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,â€ said Lt. Col. John Silverman, the Air Force Personnel Centerâ€™s knowledge operations chief. â€œAirmen can view myPers from home and access personnel information from any computer.â€
