Local Notice (16-2006) as is a summary of corrections
CG Personnel Service Command (PSC) and the CG Finance
Center (FINCEN) have restored the capability for people
who have submitted Coast Guard travel claims to view
their associated Travel Voucher Summaries (TVS) online.
A TVS will show you what elements of your travel claim
have been reimbursed, and how they add up to the Electronic
Fund Transfer (EFT) that is deposited directly into
your prescribed bank account. This system only reflects
TVSs for official travel claims (e.g. - travel associated
with attending a C-school or conference on Coast Guard
orders...not for Auxiliary patrol orders) for the past
You can access this capability a couple of ways:
- If you are at the PSC web site (http://www.uscg.mil/hq/psc/):
- click the "Travel" button in the top horizontal
menu bar - this will take you to PSC Travel
- then click the "Travel Claim Status & Voucher
Summaries" button immediately below the top
horizontal menu bar - this will take you to
the "Travel Claim/Voucher Status" page
- plug in your Social Security number where
indicated (it's a secure entry)
- click and your TVS history for the past
90 days will appear.
- If you want to go directly to the TVS web site,
type the address (https://www.fincen.uscg.mil/tvs_aux/)
- once there, plug in your Social Security number
where indicated, then click for your TVS history
for the past 90 days.
As reviewed and summarized by the Auxiliary's Information
and Communications Services Department, with online
access to your Travel Voucher Summary (TVS) system restored,
there are now three important resources to make Coast
Guard travel reimbursement and review much easier:
Combined, these make for an easier and more accurate
way to process and review your
Coast Guard travel (not patrol order) claims.
The increased accuracy reduces processing
time which means faster payments.
*** To get a status on your Patrol orders go to the
CG Finance page and enter your 13 digit patrol
