Integrated Personnel and Pay System – Army (IPPS-A)

IPPS-A’s integrated HR capabilities enables Army personnel data updates to automatically trigger Soldier pay transactions upon IPPS-A’s Release Four. This capability ensures Soldiers receive timely and accurate pay once a personnel change is made (e.g., promotion or change in dependents). In addition, the Army has improved access to personnel and pay information by providing a self-service IPPS-A Web portal from any Internet connection with Common Access Card (CAC) authentication. Together, these capabilities create a more accurate and reliable HR system for Army Soldiers, Leaders, Commanders and HR Professionals. IPPS-A is CAC enabled.


IPPS-A Site Provides an overview of IPPS-A’s Use, Training, Deployment, News, and Resources.
