DFAS Retiree Newsletter

The September 2020 Retiree Newsletter is now available online.  It contains helpful information on how to keep your SBP and AOP beneficiary information up to date, including information on how to make changes to your beneficiary designations with no fuss in myPay.

To keep you current on the best way to get things done, we will also share information on our newest form wizard.  This tool is intended to assist child annuitants who need to fill out and complete the School Certifications 2788 form.  Our new tool includes an electronic signature option, making it possible for child annuitants to completer and submit this form entirely online.  In addition, we will share information on myPay's upcoming Two Factor Authentication option, and what that means for you and your myPay account.

We also include information from the Navy Retired Activities Office (RAO), Air Force Assistance Fund Charities, and the Armed Forces Retirement Home.  Finally, TRICARE has some updates for you about new enrollment fees for some TRICARE Select Retired Beneficiaries.

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