Upcoming Schedule

Diversity and Inclusion

The Diversity and Inclusion is looking to establish a committee to help us propel us in 2021 and make it a successful year. If you are interested, please contact TSgt Ashley Ishmon or SrA Devonte Brown.

Comptroller Services Portal

Your 90th CPTS Finance Office has a virtual option available for customer convenience! By using the Comptroller Services Portal (CSP)  (https://usaf.dps.mil/teams/SAFFMCSP/portal/SitePages/Home.aspx) you can take advantage of this electronic option to ask questions, upload documents, or inquire on recent changes to your pay. Once your ticket is submitted, it is assigned to one of our skilled technicians who will quickly reach out to you and give you step-by-step instructions on what is needed to get you squared away on whatever your finance issue may be. This is also a great option to submit tickets outside of business hours or if you are out in the MAF all while minimizing any necessary foot traffic on your part.

DBIDS Credential Issue Change

Beginning Jan. 20, 2021, all DBIDS credentials (Cards and Passes) will be issued at the Visitor Control Center located outside gate 1. The Visitor Control Center is open Monday – Friday from 7 a.m.  to 4 p.m. with the exception of holidays and AFGSC Family Days. Visitors requiring a pass arriving outside these days and times will need to go with their sponsor to Gate 2 located off of Missile Drive. Memorandums for DBIDS cards, entry authority lists and pre-notes will continue to be processed by the pass and identification section. For any questions please contact Mr. Gilbert Chavez at 307-773-3110.

Social Security Payroll Tax Deferral

At the end of December, the 2020 Social Security tax deferral will end. Beginning January 2021, the normal 6.2% Social Security tax withholdings will again be deducted from pay for military members and civilians, and an additional deduction for the deferred 2020 Social Security tax collection taken from pay.

Personal Transportation and Delivery Services on F. E. Warren

Starting Nov. 23, personal transportation and delivery services (e.g. Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Grub Hub, etc.) will be authorized for use on base. DoD affiliated personnel will be allowed to use their DoD credential in order to provide this service to the base. No additional processes or procedures will be necessary. Non-DoD affiliated personnel will also be allowed to service the installation pending a criminal background check that will be accomplished at the gate at time of service. If non-DoD affiliated personnel plan to provide service to the base on a recurring basis and wish to avoid wait times associated with the background checks for each visit, they may contact the 90th Security Forces Squadron Pass and Identification section at 307-773-1853 to obtain a long-term access credential.

TRICARE

TRICARE Open Enrollment Season

TRICARE Select Group A Changes

Effective Jan. 1, 2021, TRICARE Select Group A retired beneficiaries will be required to pay TRICARE Select enrollment fees. This must be done via allotment, where feasible. In order to maintain health care coverage, TRICARE Select Group A retired beneficiaries must take action and pay their TRICARE Select enrollment fees. Beneficiaries should take action now and contact their regional contractor to set up an allotment for enrollment fees. If the beneficiary contacts their regional contractor after Nov. 20, 2020, the contractor may request two months advance enrollment fees upfront to establish monthly allotment. Beneficiaries who don't set up their TRICARE Select enrollment fee payment by Dec. 31, 2020 will be disenrolled from TRICARE Select due to non-payment. Beneficiaries will have 180 days from their termination date to request reinstatement. They must contact their regional contractor to request reinstatement. Beneficiaries will have to pay all enrollment fees back to Jan. 1, 2021. If they don't take action, beneficiaries will only be able to get care from a military hospital or clinic if space is available (i.e. all civilian healthcare costs will be their full responsibility).
