DMDC updates schedule for MLA site enhancements
The Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) has posted a revised notice yesterday about its plan (announced in June to make significant changes to the Military Lending Act (MLA) website (https://mla.dmdc.osd.mil) to enhance security of the site and better protect the personal information of Service members. A user account will be required to access both the Single Record Request and the Multiple Record Request capabilities of the MLA website. No search for active service on the MLA website will be possible without a user account.
In addition to the username, password, company name, and challenge questions currently required to create a user account, beginning July 25, 2019, new MLA website users will be required to supply the user's first name, last name, address, and e-mail address in order to create their user account.
In September of 2019, existing MLA website users will be required to update their accounts with the additional fields (user's first name, last name, address, and e-mail address). The July and September dates represent a delay of about a month when compared with the earlier announcement.
