Do I have to use the on-line My AmeriCorps system to request payments?

In order to prevent a delay in the processing of Segal AmeriCorps Education Award payments, individuals must request payments electronically using our on-line system, My AmeriCorps. This is a secure, user friendly and fast method for requesting payments to be remitted to qualified schools or loan holders. It also provides electronic records of payments requested and there are no forms to mail.

The Corporation for National & Community Service cannot guarantee the prompt and accurate processing of requests for payments using paper forms. Payments requested by paper can take up to six months or more for processing and are less secure.

It is fast and easy to access your National Service Participant account in My AmeriCorps. To register, go to and click on “Register to create a new Member/Alum account”. Then follow the instructions.
