As I’ve mentioned before, there are some topics that I feel like I talk about over and over and over. And I worry that this is boring to you. And then, I get another batch of email asking the same questions, so I’m obviously not talking about these issues enough. What to do?
Here are a variety of questions that I have recently received that all ask about issues dealing with retirement pay:
My Dad receives military retirement benefits, and we need to change the direct deposit of where the monies are getting deposited. I can’t seem to find the correct form to use. Please help me either find me the correct form to fill out and mail in or other info.
You can change the address through his online myPay account, FastForms, or via the mail. Complete directions are available in Retired Military Change of Address.
What is the monthly retirement pay supposed to be for an 0-5 who retired in 1991 after 27 years of service?
Hello, Kate. My name is C. I am retired and am on 100% disability. Could you please tell me why I am paying $48.93 per month to DFAS?
Dear C. Without seeing your retiree pay statement and your statement from the VA, I can not even begin to guess what that amount may be. You need to contact that managing agency for the payment from which this amount is being deducted to determine what it represents. Sometimes things can get coded oddly. Good luck!
Keep those questions coming, and I will keep working on answer.
