Elimination of Multiple RAS Mailings to Reduce Confusion and Costs



As part of our work to identify efficiencies that can speed up processing of requests and reduce costs, we will stop mailing multiple Retiree Account Statements (RAS) during the month.

Starting in April, those retirees who still have their statement preferences set to hardcopy postal mail will receive only one monthly RAS in the mail near the end of the month if there are changes to their net pay. This will reduce confusion when there is more than one change made to a retiree’s account during the month, which previously generated multiple RAS mailings. 

Retiree Account Statements are only mailed when there is a change to your net pay. Changes to your pay may happen for a number of reasons. It might be because of a change in an allotment that alters your net pay, or an annual Cost of Living Allowance that increases your pay. 

The additional “Daily or Change” Retiree Account Statements that are generated by the system when there is a pay-impacting change during the month will continue to be available to view and download from myPay.

Did you know your Retiree Account Statement is available in myPay each month a few days prior to payday? And that you can view, print and download your Retiree Account Statements and your tax statements? 

If you’re not using myPay, now is a great time to get started. Go to https://mypay.dfas.mil and look for New User.
