united states coast guard

Due to the Pay and Personnel Center's reduction of staff physically working in the building as a result of the coronavirus, the Call Center will temporarily cease answering live phone calls beginning 26 March 2020. Phone support will be limited to customers leaving a message. PPC staff will check messages daily, create trouble tickets, and work tickets via telework.

The phone number for PPC Customer Care is 1-866-772-8724.

All customers are encouraged to submit trouble tickets through electronic means, if possible. You can submit a trouble ticket by emailing PPC-DG-CustomerCare@uscg.mil. For those with CG Portal access, you can submit the online trouble ticket form found at https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/ppc/SitePages/Contact Us.aspx. Thank you!
