Tech Sgt. Jackie Summers, 88th CPTS Financial Operations NCO in charge, said they’ve been working on the CPS program since receiving the results of a 2018 survey conducted at 29 bases.

According to Summers, the majority of the survey’s participants said they wanted better communication with their finance offices and preferred for that communication to be in an electronic format.

Finance customers can access the portal and submit accounting, budgeting, civilian, military and travel pay inquiries by going to https://usaf.dps.mil/teams/SAFFMCSP/portal/SitePages/Home.aspx. The only user exceptions are reservists and traditional guard Airmen.

Summers said those Airmen should be able to access the portal sometime next year.

To access the site, customers will not need VPN access, but they will

California State Controller’s Office: Unclaimed Property

California’s Unclaimed Property Law requires banks, insurance companies, corporations, and certain other entities to report and submit their customers’ property to the State Controller’s Office when there has been no activity for a period of time (generally three years). Common types of unclaimed property are bank accounts, stocks, bonds, uncashed checks, insurance benefits, wages, and safe deposit box contents. Property does not include Real Estate. Controller Betty Yee safeguards this lost or forgotten property as long as it takes to reunite it with the rightful owners; there is no deadline for claiming it once it is transferred over to the State Controller’s Office. It is easy to find out if the Controller is protecting property in your name.

Claiming Your Property

Did you receive an unclaimed property notice like this? The Controller’s team sends out notices annually in an effort to connect rightful owners with their property before it is

Writing the Personal Statement for Medical School | Office of Career Strategy

The personal statement gives you the opportunity to present a compelling snapshot of who you are and perhaps why you want to be a doctor. Use your personal statement to say what others can’t. The personal statement can be a tricky genre to master. On the one hand, you want to give the admissions committee a sense of your personality and who you are. On the other hand, you must sound focused and professional, which sounds like it might impede your ability to capture your personality.

But this does not have to be the case. What you need to do is figure out how to say what drives you to want to become a healthcare professional in as specific a way as possible. The more specific you can be, the more the admissions committee will feel as if they have a sense of who you are.

You don’t need gimmicks,
