Retiree Account Statement (RAS)
Your Retiree Account Statement (RAS) is a two-page document issued by DFAS that summarizes your pay, benefits and deductions at a specific point in time. It is a description of what you can expect on the next pay date. Understanding your RAS is an important first step in managing your retirement pay.
A monthly electronic Retiree Account Statement (RAS) is available to all military retirees currently receiving retirement payments. The RAS is available on myPay
, the official online account management system for military members and DoD employees. The statements will be available by the first of each month and you will be able to access up to 12 months of statements. Please register an email address
in your myPay
account, so we can send you an email reminder each month when your statement is available.
In addition to the monthly RAS, all retirees receive a RAS whenever you make a change to your account and an annual RAS each December.

If you cannot access myPay or you need a RAS that is no longer in your myPay account, send a detailed written request to:
Defense Finance and Accounting Service
U.S. Military Retired Pay
8899 E 56th Street
Indianapolis IN 46249-1200
In your request, please include:
- your name
- Social Security Number
- the date
Please specify exactly what information you need and the dates you need included in the statement. (For example: federal income tax withholding, Survivor Benefit Plan costs and allotments for June 2010 to September 2010).
Retiree Account Statements from past years require extensive research. Please allow up to 60 days to process an extended audit of your account.
Reading Your RAS
Once you've obtained a copy of your RAS, it's important that you know what everything that's included on it means to you. Keep in mind that your statement may not contain information in every field - only those that apply to your pay at the time your RAS is issued.
