Address Change Procedures

NOTE TO RETIREES AND ANNUITANTS:  Please DO NOT send change of address information to the Retiree Services Section or the Afterburner 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) from official Air Force agencies.

 

Individuals with Internet Access

 

People with myPay accounts may change their address online by logging in at https://mypay.dfas.mil/mypay.aspxBecause there are other changes that can be made electronically, retired members and annuitants are encouraged to go this route.  

 

Those people without a myPay account who subscribe electronically to the Afterburner can change their email address by sending their old and new email addresses to afpc.retiree@us.af.mil.
