Using myPay To Update Your Correspondence Address
If you choose to receive your 1099R in the mail, it’s important to make sure the mailing address you have on file with myPay is current.
If you need to update the correspondence address you have on file with DFAS, make sure you also update your correspondence address with the U.S. Postal Service. If the two addresses are not the same, it can create confusion and result in a misdirected 1099R.
The quickest and easiest way to update the mailing address you have on file is to use myPay (https://mypay.dfas.mil/mypay.aspx).
To change your mailing address using myPay:
1. On the Main Menu page, click on the Correspondence Address link.
2. Enter the correct address.
3. Save your changes and confirm the changes you made are correct.
4. From the top of the page in the gray bar, you may select Main to return to the Main Menu or Exit to close out your session.
You can also the DFAS Change of Address Fast Form or send us a written request.
Fast Forms (http://www.dfas.mil/retiredmilitary/forms.html) are electronic versions of DFAS paper forms. They are processed automatically, and they save paper and postage costs. You will receive email confirmation of your submission and your account will be updated in three to seven business days.
If you choose to mail or fax a written request to change your address, please include both your old and new mailing address along with the effective date for the new address. Additionally, please include your name, Social Security number, and signature with date on your request. It will take 30 to 60 days to process your written request.
If you have questions about what other account information you need to keep current, and when you should be updating it, you can access a video tutorial at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmZywoPSMZo&list=PLhx_8nsfXqVhB9fkFUpcpXIERDHWQIwc_.
