Answers to these questions will automatically populate a DD 1351-2 (travel voucher) and other necessary forms. Additionally, SmartVoucher prompts travelers to upload the necessary supporting documents for a valid travel voucher.

Soldiers should monitor their emails for status updates or corrections if needed.

SmartVoucher allows soldiers to get paid for their PCS money up to 50% faster and can be accessed anytime, anywhere with a CAC or myPay username/password. Additionally, soldiers can receive text or email notifications to expedite the claims process.

DFAS also reports that this process reduces 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 home page. From there, travelers will be able to log in to their myPay account via CAC or their login ID and password.
