Civilian Relocation Debt Notification - If you incur a travel related debt, a letter will be sent through e-billing that will allow you to pay the debt in 30 days using the system. This letter will provide a link to and an access code specific to your debt. If you have not paid your travel debt within 30 days, you will receive another debt letter with additional options to pay your debt.
