Retirees: You Can Now Upload Your SBP Election Change Form Online

As part of our work to modernize Retired & Annuitant Pay and make the processes easier for you, we added a convenient, online upload tool for retirees for the DD2656-6 (Survivor Benefit Plan Election Change Certificate). Instead of mailing or faxing your completed form, you can now upload it directly in a PDF through AskDFAS on the website. You’ll also receive an email notification that your information was received. And starting soon, you’ll get status notifications via email when you upload your documents through this online tool (see the status notifications article in this issue).

It’s easy to use the online upload tool. Just click on the link below, fill in the required information and attach a PDF of your completed and signed form and any associated documentation. When submitting additional documentation, it is important to include your name and social security number on every document.

Please note the AskDFAS online upload tools can only accept the specific form and documentation noted on the upload tool. Other requests or documents cannot be processed through the online upload tools.
