Congratulations! You're on your way to "the best hometown in the Coast Guard." Our offices are located in the Frank Carlson Federal Building at 444 SE Quincy Street in Topeka, Kansas. Topeka is known for its history, beauty and great family atmosphere.
PPC's primary mission is to provide pay and personnel services to all Coast Guard active duty, Reserve, Retiree and Annuitant members and to process travel claims for all Coast Guard employees, including civilians and Auxiliary members.
To help ease your transition, the PPC staff has compiled the resources listed on this page. If you have questions about any of the subjects listed, please contact your sponsor or PPC (PERS) at (785) 339-3600.

If you are an Active Duty member and Kansas is NOT your legal state of residence, you can bring this form (Military Affidavit Vehicle Registration) along with a copy of your latest payslip, current orders, and title/registration/proof of insurance to DMV and significantly decrease the cost to register your vehicle(s).
Additionally, if this is the first time registering your vehicle in Kansas, remember to bring it and the title to KHP to have the VIN inspected and verified. Bring the MVE-1 form KHP gives you to DMV, as well.
