The Air Force Personnel Accountability and Assessment System (AFPAAS) standardizes the method for the Air Force to account, assess, manage, and monitor the recovery and reconstitution process for personnel and their families affected and/or scattered by a wide-spread catastrophic event. AFPAAS provides valuable information to all levels of the Air Force chain of command, allowing commanders to make strategic decisions which facilitate a return to stability.
AFPAAS allows Air Force Personnel to do the following:
• Report Accounting Status
• Update Your Family Contact/Location Information
• Complete Needs Assessment
• View Reference Information
As we close out the summer PCS cycle and enter hurricane season, it’s important to take time to ensure that your contact information in AFPAAS and DEERS is accurate and up-to-date.
VERIFYING AND UPDATING INFORMATION FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
All Air Force Personnel are required to verify their address information ANNUALLY in the Military Personnel Data System (MilPDS) or the Civilian Personnel Data System (CPDS). Please TAKE TIME TODAY TO VERIFY YOUR INFORMATION is correctly reflected in AFPAAS at https://afpaas.af.mil/. Click on “Click Here” button under the “Airmen / Civilians” heading. Access is granted using a CAC card. To verify your information in AFPAAS, select the "My Info" tab to view/update your profile and family member information.
AFPAAS gets data from the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) which pulls from DEERS. Therefore, it is important that information in DEERS is updated and accurate. You can update DEERS info at: https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/.
REPORTING REQUIREMENT DURING EXERCISE OR REAL WORLD EVENT
In the event of an exercise or real world event, you and your family members may be required to report their statuses in AFPAAS. We ask that you remain cognizant of your AFPAAS reporting requirements by checking AFPAAS in the event of any type of disaster. Please keep in mind, if an event has been established and you and/or your family members aren’t identified in AFPAAS, you have a requirement to add yourself and/or family members (only if affected) to AFPAAS. Ensuring that you keep contact information updated and accurate enables us to reach you as needed.
FAMILY MEMBER’S ROLE
In addition, communicating the importance of having your family members use AFPAAS to report their status in the event of evacuation when you are not with them is critical. For your family members, the login process is also at https://afpaas.af.mil/. Click on “Click Here” button under the “Airmen / Civilians” heading. Then, under “Select Login Method”, they will select “Personal Information” and log in with their sponsor’s SSN, date of birth and last name. From here, they can update contact and location information for all of the immediate family members to be accounted for.
