THE INS AND OUTS OF RETIRED PAY
This newsletter edition is all about making changes to your retired pay account. It contains information and advice to help you keep your pay coming on time every time, no matter what life throws at you.
WHEN TO CONTACT YOUR BRANCH OF SERVICE
Some details in your retired pay account come from your official military record. No matter how much we want to help, DFAS cannot change them without authorization from your branch of service. These items include...
HOW TO CONTACT US
When you request a change to your account, it may be anywhere from three to 60 days before you see it. The time it takes depends on how you send it to us.
WHEN TO UPDATE YOUR ACCOUNT
The best time to make changes to your account is within the first two weeks of the month. This increases the likelihood of your request being completed before the next payday.
