Keeping Retiree Pay Records Up-to-Date

It is important that you periodically review your military retirement pay account status to ensure all information is up-to-date.

You should notify DFAS (or Coast Guard RAS) as soon as possible about any change in marital or family status, beneficiaries, mailing address or bank account information. This ensures that your retirement pay and other important communications are received and provides for proper monthly premium deductions, if applicable.
