McChord unit gets new designation

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash.  -- The Airmen assigned to the 62nd Mission Support Group at Joint Base Lewis-McChord got a new unit designation and a more focused mission last week.

In a ceremony Sept. 17 in Hangar 9 at McChord Field, the 62nd MSG inactivated and the 627th Air Base Group was born. Colonel Kenny Weldon returned a ceremonial first salute from the newly activated group he now commands.

The unit reorganized to conform to the Department of Defense's joint-basing architecture by separating from the flying-mission wing and embedding its squadrons in the installation-support focused JBLM garrison. Five squadrons formerly called 62nd now belong to 627th: Civil Engineer, Communications, Security Forces, Force Support and Logistics Readiness. The former 62nd Contracting Squadron inactivated and its civilian personnel were absorbed into the JBLM garrison as Department of the Army civilian employees.

New finance system debuts at McChord

In an effort to expedite the payment of vouchers and save airmen time when it comes to submitting documents, the McChord Financial Services Office will debut the eFinance system Jan. 1.

eFinance is a secure, paperless process to submit financial documents with automated assistance from the McChord Financial Services Office. The process is accomplished via a "Turbo Tax" approach to guide the member through a wide range of finance functions. The system may be accessed via a secure Web site application using a common access card and pin at https://efinanceworkspace.wpafb.af.mil or through the Air Force Portal under the Money-Finance Central link. Once accessed, the eFinance site uses an easy-to-understand question and answer session to walk the user through the process of travel, allotments and entitlements from start to finish.

eFinance is designed to process financial documents or route the user to the appropriate system that can. For example, if the user is accessing eFinance and wants to change direct deposit information, the system will automatically route them to myPay to accomplish the change. The capabilities of eFinance include both military pay and non-DTS travel transactions for both reserve and active duty members, excluding CED orders. Highlights of the system include immediate e-mail notification on the status of vouchers, the ability to scan or fax supporting documents and off-site submission capabilities for reserve and detachment organizations. This makes eFinance a one-stop system that gives the user the necessary tools to efficiently manage their Air Force financial affairs.

Starting Jan. 31, the McChord FSO will no longer accept paper documents that can be submitted through eFinance or MyPay. Visit https://eim.amc.af.mil/org/62cpts for a complete guide to submitting documents. The finance office will also open eight computer stations with scanners to assist any member with eFinance submissions.

For more information, e-mail  62cptshelp@mcchord.af.mil.
