How to Deal with SF-50 problems?
August 12, 2010 at 12:21 am #107977
Anyone else have problems getting their SF-50?
I have a friend who is applying for a new job and he is having trouble getting his latest SF-50 from HR. Any tips?
That’s why I always scanned, copied my SF-50 so I’d have a copy myself.

All I could find was the following:
Visit the U.S. Office of Personnel Management website. This website provides numerous documents used for U.S. federal employment and benefits opportunities.
Find the SF-50 link (it should be the third option), and click the Portable Document Format (.PDF) logo on the right. The SF-50 document will show on your computer screen as long as you have a .PDF reader program on your computer.
Print the SF-50 .PDF document, and fill out the necessary items as directed with a black or blue ink pen. Be sure to review all pages before you begin to ensure you fill in the proper information.

If HR is not able to help, then you may request a copy of your final SF-50, a complete copy of your official Personnel Folder (OPF), or certain other forms by writing to:
National Personnel Records Center, 111 Winnebago Street, St. Louis, MO 63118-4126

Where does this person work? At Navy we have Total Workforce Management System (TWMS) which allows employees to pull this information themself. It is CAC enabled so it is secured. The info for TWMS flows from our personnel database (DCPDS) so it is as accurate as what we have on file. It’s complete self-service and brilliant! https://twms.nmci.navy.mil
If they are within another agency, they just need to contact their prior HR POC. Either way, HR can retrieve their SF 50 much quicker than OPM.

Steve ~ If your friend is having trouble getting a copy of his most recent SF-50 from HR, he has the option to request (in writing – e.g., via email) to review his OPF as soon as possible, at which point he can make his own copy. If he has electronic access to eOPF, he can download his SF-50 through that application. If it were me, after multiple, unsuccessful attempts through HR, I’d inquire about the issue to whomever HR reports (and copy HR of course).
