Electronic Leave & Earning Statement MOA
DFAS and AFGE Council 171 previously agreed to a one-year pilot for the use of E/MSS (myPay) to receive Leave and Earnings Statements (ELES) electronically. During the pilot, many efficiencies and benefits were gained through its use. Now that the pilot has ended, the parties agree to encourage continued use on a voluntary basis.
MyPay provides a great opportunity for DFAS to reduce costs. We spend in excess of $10 million annually to print and mail LESs to our customers. Using myPay to view and print your LES and voluntarily electing to turn off the hardcopy distribution mailed to your home can further reduce these costs. Additionally, the electronic LES is available to employees generally two days prior to the pay date.
While we recognize there may be instances where some employees are not able to take advantage of this benefit, DFAS and AFGE Council 171 will continue to work together to develop proactive solutions to facilitate increased participation.
