GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — U.S. Army PCS travelers can now use the DFAS SmartVoucher tool to quickly and easily complete their travel vouchers. This streamlined process allows Soldiers to get their travel expenses paid faster.
The SmartVoucher is a web-based tool that guides travelers through user-friendly questions regarding their travel and dependents. The responses to these questions will automatically populate a DD 1351-2 (travel voucher) and other necessary forms. Additionally, SmartVoucher prompts travelers to upload supporting documents needed for a valid travel voucher.
Once PCS travelers log into SmartVoucher with their CAC or myPay ID and password, they will answer a series of easy questions similar to tax software, attach required forms and submit the completed voucher. Soldiers should monitor their emails for status updates or corrections if needed.
SmartVoucher allows Soldiers to get paid their PCS money up to 50% faster and is accessible anytime, anywhere with a CAC or a myPay login/password. In addition, Soldiers may receive texts or e-mail notifications to expedite the claim process.
DFAS also states this process cuts PCS claim returns by up to 50%.
There are two ways to access SmartVoucher: go directly to htpps://smartvoucher.dfas.mil/voucher or visit the myPay website and click on the Quick Links tab at the top of the homepage. From there, travelers will be able to sign into their myPay account via CAC or their login ID and password.
In addition to traditional PCS Vouchers, Soldiers can use SmartVoucher for the following:
