NEWS RELEASE DEFENSE FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING SERVICE 8899 East 56th Street Indianapolis, IN 46249 Press Release 0911-002 For Immediate Release September 2, 2011 1 of 2

 Military Retiree Pay Dates to Change

CLEVELAND (September 2, 2011) – Paydays for military retirees and those who receive portions of retired pay are changing for Sep tember and December,as the Defense Finance and Accounting Service changes its pay schedule to comply with the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act.

The 2011 NDAA requires military retiree pay to be processed on the first day of the month. When that day falls on a weekend or national holiday, the pay date is moved to the previous business day.

 

This year payments normally scheduled for Oct. 3, 2011 will be issued on Sept. 30, 2011 and payments normally scheduled for Jan. 3, 2012, will be issued on Dec. 30, 2011. For the calendar year 2011, this means military retirees will receive 13 rather than the normal 12 payments.

The 13th payday on Dece mber 30 falls within the 2011 tax year, which could affect the tax liability of some retirees and those who receive portions of their retired pay. Customers should speak with a tax advisor, the Internal Revenue Service or their state tax authority to determine if their tax withholding will satisfy federal and state income taxes when they file returns next year. DFAS cannot provide tax advice.

 

For tax year 2012 and beyond, retirees will receive their normal 12 payments.

 

This change affects regular retired pay, Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay and Combat Related Special Compensation. The new rule also applies to retiree allotments, garnishments and court-ordered former spouse and child support payments. It does not affect annuity payments.

If retirees need to make changes to their federal or state tax withholding, the quickest and most secure way to do so is through myPay. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, myPay enables eligible users around the world to make routine changes to their pay information, including tax withholding, that become effective within days.

 

Customers who cannot access myPay can change federal withholding amounts by completing a new IRS Form W-4 or W-4P, or change state withholding amounts using a DD 2866. These forms can be found on the DFAS website (www.dfas.mil/retiredmilit ary/forms.html) and should be mailed or faxed to the below address once completed:

Defense Finance and Accounting Service U.S. Military Retired Pay P.O. Box 7130 London, KY 40742-7130

Fax: 800-469-6559

It may take up to 30 days for changes to be made when mailing in a paper form. Defense Finance and Accounting Service, News Release 2 of 2

“Two months left! The deadline for Retroactive Stop Loss claims is Oct. 21, 2011. The DoD's Retroactive Stop Loss Special Pay page has more information.”
