For 10 years, the Air Force has provided some civilian employees access to online, self-service benefits and entitlements programs that have shed light on current efforts to transform personnel services.

The transformation, known as Personnel Services Delivery or PSD, seeks to establish convenient and simple access to other personnel programs like the Employee Benefits Information System provides AF appropriated fund civilian employees.

PSD is not new to civilians. The name is new, however Air Force civilian personnel has been doing innovative things in personnel for the more than 10 years.

Currently, Air Force civilians are using online applications that are not available throughout the federal government. As the transformation continues, PSD will provide civilians with greater control of personnel services and information.

EBIS is a Web-based automated benefits election and information system that streamlines the benefits and entitlements process. It provides electronic enrollment in health and life insurance and the Thrift Savings Plan and also provides retirement information and calculators.

Through EBIS, civilians can access and complete certain forms online, such as those required to designate beneficiaries. Once the applicable form is completed, the employee can print, obtain necessary ink signatures, and mail to the Benefits and Entitlements Service Team for processing at the Air Force Personnel Center here.

The process is virtually paperless for the majority of health and life insurance and Thrift Savings Plan transactions.

As the PSD transformation continues to grow, Air Force civilians may conduct more personnel business at a time and place of their choosing.
