How to Update My DFAS Address

Save

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, or DFAS, is the Pentagon's Finance department. It pays military and civilian employees, retirees and annuitants, as well as contractors and vendors. When your account has been activated with DFAS, you will need to always keep your address updated on your DFAS account so that there will be no interruption in your benefits. DFAS has three easy ways to update your account information: through the mail, by FastForm, or via myPay, the department's online account management system.
