Army/Air Force members:
DFAS would like to thank you for your patience as we strive to deliver first class customer service during these unprecedented times. We have restored our retrieval and printing of Military Pay records operation effective May 7, 2020. As a reminder, myPay provides access to the last 13 months of LES; therefore, we kindly ask to only request retrieval and printing of records that are not available in myPay.
Please understand due to precautionary measures implemented to protect against the spread of the Coronavirus there are still delays in our manual processing of older records as these records are maintained on microfiche and must be manually retrieved. This impacts requests for the following periods:
*Regular Army (Active Duty) : All prior to September 1991
*Regular Air Force : All prior to January 1982 and the year of 1984
*US Army and Air Force Reserves/National Guard : All prior to January 1994
If you are currently serving in the military and require older LES’s, we also ask that you submit a request through your unit who will submit on your behalf to the local finance office.
Please know that any previously submitted requests are still in progress and will be processed in the order they were received as soon as the current conditions allow. Please avoid opening new or multiple tickets for any records request you have already submitted which is still in processing as this will delay processing.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we all continue to stay safe during this pandemic.

Combat Zone Tax Exclusion (CZTE) for Sinai, Egypt
Effective June 9, 2015, Congress declared that the Sinai Peninsula is a qualified hazardous duty area. Members who serve in a qualified hazardous duty area and also receive Hostile Fire Pay (HFP) or Imminent Danger Pay (IDP) while performing service in that area are entitled to CZTE. This includes service members who were assigned (Permanent Change of Station (PCS) or Temporary Change of Station (TCS)), on Temporary Duty (TDY), and/or mobilized to the Sinai.
If you served in this area at any time from June 9, 2015 to December 31, 2017, please bring a copy of one of these forms of substantiating documents to your finance office: (1) PCS/TCS/TDY mobilization orders, (2) the DD Form1351-2, Travel Voucher or Sub voucher, and/or the (3) Defense Travel System (DTS) voucher. Your finance office will take action to adjust your taxable wages and issue an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form W2c, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement, for June 2015 through December 31, 2017, if needed. Traditional Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) contributions may also need to be changed from tax-deferred to tax-exempt.
Starting January 1, 2018, if you serve in the Sinai, the CZTE will be processed with no action required by you.

POWER OF ATTORNEY
There are times when spouses, parents and even tax preparers need to talk with us regarding pay issues for our military customers. By law, we must respect the privacy of all our military members and cannot discuss any aspect of their pay unless you have a valid special power of attorney. Powers of attorney give someone the ability to act on a military member's behalf. Discuss this with your chosen representative and a member of your legal assistance team.
