The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) operates the Defense Retiree and Annuitant Pay System (DRAS). The DRAS replaced the former systems performing military and annuitant pay processing through the Department of Defense. The system is a standard combined system. It uses advanced data processing techniques and telecommunications capabilities.

The simplest and quickest way to manage your retirement account is through myPay , DFAS's online account management system. For any questions or concerns regarding myPay , call 888-332-7411 (option 5) for a customer service representative.
