DYESS AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
The 7th Comptroller Squadron opened a Satellite Finance office located in the 7th Maintenance Group, building 5003 at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, beginning Oct. 1, 2018.
The office hours are Monday through Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. The office will be closed Thursdays and the second Friday of every month. The office is open to all Air Force personnel assigned to Dyess AFB.
“The satellite office is being created to bring financial services closer to the majority of our customers, which are in flightline operations,” said Maj. LaToya Smith, 7th Comptroller Squadron commander.
Services will include military pay, dependency status updates, in and out processing, permanent change of station, separations and retirements, however, Defense Travel System assistance will not be available at this location.
“This center will allow the Airmen to get the one-on-one assistance they need,” said Tech. Sgt. Marlynn Cruz, 7th CPTS flight chief of financial operations.
The Satellite Finance will remain open on a trial basis and its future will be based on the level of utilization. If it is successful, the finance office will look at rotating to other locations for other Airmen around the base.
“The gain from this center is to minimize mission delays by bringing the services to the Airmen’s front door,” said Smith. “This will reduce the time Airman spend away from the office or off the flightline. This also gives our finance personnel an opportunity to embed in the units and see a different side of the mission at Dyess.”
