Director's Message


Greetings from Cleveland, where we are currently enjoying a short break from the usual December weather!

It’s the time of year when we all want to focus on the holiday season. But this yuletide month also brings something else. It’s the beginning of yet another tax season. As we enter tax season, we want to make sure you are aware of all of the convenient options available for getting your tax documents. Our tax season article should help with that.

Our status notifications and online upload tool initiative continue to expand, and in this issue, we highlight several new documents that you can upload via askDFAS online and receive status notifications for when you submit. 

Also in this issue, you will find helpful information on our progress in streamlining the retiree ROE process. We continue to push to make managing your pay account easy and convenient, with simpler processes and online options. 

We also include important information on the upcoming phases of the SBP-DIC Offset Phased Elimination and the 2022 COLA and pay schedule, as well as news from our partners. 

Keep in mind that our website puts a lot of helpful information at your fingertips. Check it out: https://www.dfas.mil/retiredmilitary.

We honor the service and sacrifices made by you and your family. We are proud to serve those who have served, and we wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
