About IRS 1095-B and 1095-C forms
As required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), DFAS continues to provide IRS Forms 1095-B or 1095-C via individual myPay accounts. These forms are created for military, retiree and federal civilian employees who receive healthcare insurance coverage through Tricare or Federal Employee Health Benefit programs. According to the IRS, these forms are not required to prepare or file income tax returns but will be available via myPay no later than Jan. 31, 2021. IRS Form 1095-B will only be available online via myPay, unless a request is received for a copy by mail.  

Customers urged to keep documents safe
Military members, retirees and federal civilian employees paid by DFAS are encouraged to rely on the convenience and security of their myPay accounts. Customers can restrict exposure of their important documents by opting out of hardcopy delivery. Deadline for changes to delivery for 2020 retiree 1099R forms is December 10. For military and civilian W2s the deadline is December 16.

Mail misrouted. No myPay? No problem
DFAS does have self-service options available for customers, including separated military members, to request tax statements quickly and securely..

Beginning in January, the agency’s Interactive Voice Routing System, which customers access when calling a customer service phone number, provides prompts for reissuing 1099Rs (military retirees only), and W2s (for active/reserve/separated military members and civilian employees).

The agency also provides for online requests via its askDFAS modules (/a> allowing customers, including military annuitants, to request reprints of current and past tax and pay statements. Both IVRS and askDFAS requests are answered in approximately 7-10 business days with printed and mailed documents.
