DFAS Retiree Newsletter: March 2021

March 24, 2021

The March 2021 Retiree Newsletter is now available online. If you are still in need of tax documents for your retired or annuitant pay account, this newsletter contains an article on convenient options for getting them that don’t involve calling and waiting on hold. You can use myPay to get both current and past tax documents, use our AskDFAS online request form, or use our convenient telephone self-serve ordering option.

Speaking of myPay, please read the article in this issue on the start of mandatory two-factor authentication for myPay.  Two-factor authentication helps keep your online accounts secure and prevents thieves from stealing your personal and financial information.

This edition also contains great information that will help you manage your account so you can smooth the way for your loved ones.  Please share the article in this issue about what they need to know when you pass away. We also have a good article in this newsletter that will help you ensure your SBP coverage is correct if you want coverage for a former spouse.

One of the initiatives we’re excited about this year is the new status notification project. This will provide basic notifications about the receipt and status of a request from our retiree or annuitant customers via an email.  We’re still in the early stages, but we want to make sure you know about some of our exciting innovations on the horizon.

Spring is the start of another busy time: School Certification season. Last year we made sweeping changes to simplify the process for student SBP annuitants who are over 18 and need to certify their full-time attendance in school.  We want to make sure that all of them know what they need to do as the school year ends. There is an article in this newsletter with all of the details.

Please remember, we also have a downloadable PDF version of the newsletter you can share with friends.

To access the newsletter, please copy and paste the link below into your internet browser.  You will find a list of topics in the newsletter with a brief description of each article. Click on the link in the list of topics for the article you want to read, and the full text will appear. The bottom link in the list of topics is to the downloadable PDF version of the newsletter.
