    I have tried numerous times to get a copy of my SF 50. It is an emergency.

      I need a copy of my SF 50 for employment. I have tried numerous times with no response. I have mailed two requests along with a fax and still no response. I have sent a fax March 31,2021 and have not received anything. This is an emergency request. I have employers asking for this form and I have been turned away from positions I qualify for. You are denying a service to qualified federal employees by not processing these requests.

          The Civilian Personnel Records Center closed on August 19, 2020 due to unsafe local public health metrics.  Recently, NARA has reopened the Civilian Personnel Records Center (CPR) in Valmeyer, IL since local conditions have improved.  During Phrase One, CPR will maintain minimal staffing levels to support emergency reference requests only. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
