There is more than one way to check the status of your voucher...
DTS Users: Login to the Defense Travel System (DTS) website to check your status.
Status of travel processed in DTS is not available using the methods listed below.
Use the Online Payment Status Tool!
Simply enter your Travel Order/Authorization Number and email address in the form. You'll receive an email within minutes telling you the status of your voucher.
Army active, Reserve, National Guard and Defense Agency employees can check the status of travel vouchers in myPay. Login and select "Travel Voucher Advice of Payment" from your main menu.
Or, call 1-888-332-7366 (DSN 699-0300) the self-service telephone line to find out if your voucher has been paid. You will need your social security number and telephone self-service PIN.
