JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Air Force human resources officials added a new feature in May to the Employee Benefits Information System Web application that allows Air Force appropriated fund civilians to request benefits-related actions online.

The HR Link module will help civilians prepare for retirement, request a retirement estimate and acquire the necessary paperwork to pay a military or civilian deposit.

“HR Link provides a means for civilians to submit a request for a retirement estimate as well as military and civilian deposit requests,” said Sharon Mack, Air Force human resources specialist. “The module asks a series of questions to help civilians submit their requests. After a request is submitted, they will be able to monitor the status of their requests through the myPers website.”

The module is the latest online tool developed by the Air Force Personnel Center Benefits and Entitlements Service Team to improve the customer service experience for civilians. It is accessible in EBIS through the Air Force Portal or the myPers website at For additional information regarding HR Link, go to the myPers website and enter 4408 in the search box. EBIS access instructions may also be found on the myPers website by entering 4872 in the search box.
