Records for departing civilians
Air Force Personnel Center
RANDOLPH Air Force Base, Texas ---Air Force civilians are now able to access their electronic Official Personnel Folder for up to 60 days following their date of separation.
This new capability allows employees to log into the AFPC Secure website from a personal computer using a user ID and password and download a copy of their final separation Standard Form 50, Notification of Personnel Action, or any other eOPF document.
The user ID and password must be created prior to separation. For instructions on how to establish a user ID and password, visit the personnel services website and enter keyword "eOPF."
Allowing separated employees access to their eOPF for up to 60 days gives them immediate access to their final SF 50. Previously, employees had to wait for a hard copy to be mailed.
