Retired Reserve 'Awaiting Pay' Notification Letter Update

  • Published
  • Headquarters Air Reserve Personnel Center Public Affairs

Effective October 1, 2020, Headquarters Air Reserve Personnel Center reinitiated the process to notify retired service members on the procedures to draw retirement pay.

Notification letters will be sent out approximately three to four months prior to the member turning age 60 or reaching their confirmed Reduced Retirement Pay Age date. Within this notification letter, retirees will be informed of the current pay document(s) needed for submission and how to apply for retirement pay online via myPers.

Letters will be sent via email and to the current home mailing address on file for the member in the Military Personnel System, not in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS).

HQ ARPC stresses the importance that ALL retirees keep their current home mailing and email addresses up to date in the Military Personnel System. Retirees may update their information by taking the following the steps.

1. Log into myPers

2. Under the Retiree Profile navigate to the "I would like to" option

3. Select "Update my address/phone/email address" and submit the most current information 

Retirees may log in to myPers and click on the 'Contact us' link, or call the Air Force Personnel Center at 1-800-525-0102 for more information.
