ADDRESS CHANGE PROCEDURES

NOTE TO RETIREES AND ANNUITANTS:
PLEASE DO NOT send change of address information to the Retiree Services Section at the Air Force Personnel Center. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service is the agency responsible for maintaining and changing correspondence addresses for retired members and recipients of Survivor Benefit Plan annuities who may receive correspondence (including the Afterburner, News for USAF Retired Personnel) from official Air Force agencies.

NOTE: When changing your address with DFAS, be sure to also change your address with DEERS. Just click on DEERS

INDIVIDUALS WITH INTERNET ACCESS

People with myPay accounts may change their address on the Internet by going to https://mypay.dfas.mil/mypay.aspx, entering their personal identification number and then changing their correspondence address. Because there are other changes that can be made electronically, retired members and annuitants are encouraged to go this route. Those without a PIN should use the same Web site and request a PIN which will be sent through the mail in a short time.

Those people who subscribe electronically to the e-Afterburner and the Air Force Retiree News Service can change their e-mail address by clicking on the "Subscribe" option on the top navigation bar of this page. From there find the Afterburner/Air Force Retiree News Service block. First unsubscribe the old e-mail address, then subscribe with the new e-mail address.

INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS
