Civilians must create eOPF account to access records

Air Force Personnel Center officials are reminding Air Force civilian employees that they need to create their Office of Personnel Management electronic Official Personnel Folder account in order to access their personnel records.

The OPM eOPF application, which replaced the Air Force Civilian Electronic OPF, is a secure electronic personnel folder which contains civilian personnel documents, such as notifications of personnel actions for Federal appointment, awards, promotions, and the recent furlough notice. It also includes documentation of benefits elections, such as Thrift Saving Plan contributions, life insurance, and health benefits.

“This is an important tool in managing your career and ensuring your records are correct,” said Chuck Zedek, eOPF program manager. “We highly urge employees to set up their new eOPF accounts and view their records sooner than later, because if there are delays or issues we can get them resolved now rather than at the last moment when an individual needs to have the information.”

This self-service tool enables employees to electronically view and print OPF documents, and to update emergency data. Civilian employees will be prompted to change their password every 60 days.

For guidance on how to create an eOPF account, visit the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil. For additional assistance, contact the OPM eOPF help desk at 866-275-8518 or email eopf_hd@telesishq.com. Employees with questions concerning specific personnel actions or documents should contact their servicing personnel representative.
