What to Expect in Your End-of-Year Mailing from DFAS

For those who still request postal mail from DFAS, each January we mail an end-of-year packet, which includes:
  1. Your 1099-R, which is the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form for reporting annuity distributions, and
  2. A one-page version of the December Retiree Newsletter, and
  3. An end-of-year Annuitant Account Statement (AAS).
All end-of-year packets will be in the mail no later than January 31, 2021

If you have opted to receive electronic mail, you will not receive this mailing. Your 1099-R and  AAS are conveniently available to print or download from myPay. 
Convenient Options for Getting a Replacement 1099-R

If you need an additional copy of your 1099-R tax document, we have easy, convenient options. Please note that requests for a mailed 1099R replacement cannot be fulfilled prior to February 10, 2021


Your 1099-R is available much earlier and more securely in myPay than those sent to customers who choose delivery by mail. If you're not using myPay, now is a great time to start. See the myPay article in this newsletter for how to get started.

Even if you are not a myPay user, you can get a copy of your 1099-R sent to your mailing address on record or to a one-time, temporary mailing address by submitting your request online. See our “Manage Your SBP Annuity” page for information: https://www.dfas.mil/managesbp


If you prefer traditional mail, you can send us a written request by mail (or fax), but please make sure you leave ample time for processing and for mail delivery:
