*** Physical Delivery of DD Form 214***

1. In an effort to minimize costs and utilize existing technology, effective1 December 2013, the hard copy DD Form 214 (copies 1 and 4) will no longer
be mailed out to members.  Since October 2010, separating or retiring individuals could electronically access and print their DD Form 214s. Eliminating the need of mailing paper copies reduces money spent on a redundant process.

2.   This policy affects those DD Form 214s that are accomplished at AFPC-Total Force Service Center (TFSC), Randolph Air Force Base only.  For
those individuals who are on terminal leave before 1 December 2013, their hard copy DD Form 214s will still be mailed out.

3. During separation and retirement processing, members receive instructions on how to access, review and print their DD Form 214 as needed. Copies 1 and 4 are housed on the secure server in the vMPF for a period of 60 days past the official retirement/separation effective date.  After the 60 days, members are able to obtain copies from the eBenefits website www.ebenefits.va.gov.

4. Members with an approved retirement or separation should retrieve a USERID and password allowing access to the AFPC Secure application.  This can be done while still on active-duty by using your CAC and either entering the AF Portal using the AFPC Secure link, or directly at
https://w20.afpc.randolph.af.mil/AFPCSecureNet20/CheckPortal.aspx.  Once at the site, utilize the  "Update/Delete Password" tab to generate a new USERID/password.  While on terminal leave, the member will be able to access the worksheet and be able to retrieve their DD Form 214 when completed.

5. Those who are not able to use their CAC should contact the A1 Service Desk at 1-800-525-0102, (option "8") or dial DSN 665-5004 and they will
provide assistance in obtaining a USERID/password.

6. AFPC point of contact is AFPC/DPSOR

Has AFPC sent you your official orders?  Then it is time to schedule a final out for your Retirement or Separation.  Members can schedule a final out appointment on either Monday, Wednesday or Friday through any relocations team member by calling 858-1776, option 2. After the appointment is scheduled, members will be sent an outlook calendar invite to remind them of their appointment.

REMINDER:  Members must attend their out-processing in uniform.  Those members not in uniform will not be allowed to out-process.  No exceptions.

Passports

To apply for a passport or visa, customers MUST have an appointment. Please
call 301-981-3915 ahead of time to schedule an appointment.
Please note, during the summer PCS cycle, appointment times fill up quickly.
The 11 FSS does not create passports or visa's and strictly follows the
rules of the Department of State/Defense.

NOTE:  Passports take 6 - 8 weeks to process, with Visa's taking an additional 4 - 6 weeks to process.

Personnel and their families who do not apply with enough time to process
Passports/Visas may be impacted and the departure delayed or terminated.

After you have been contacted that your Passport/Visa is ready for pick up,
contact the Passport agent ahead of time to ensure they will be available.
Non-passport agents are NOT authorized to release passports/visa's to
personnel; therefore, it will save you time and effort if you contact the
office ahead of time to ensure availability.

Due to manning for the Passport office, these appointment hours are
necessary.  Please note Passport services are affected by the sequestration
and furlough's and appointment times/services are limited during the
furlough timeframe.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
