FYI: Retired Pay Allotments
Similar to AAFMAA?s decision to reintegrate the Living and Survivor Assistance Services on July 1, 2010, the Department of Defense (DoD) is also reviewing its programs that are currently out-sourced to see if it makes sense to bring any of them back in-house.
Most recently, DFAS announced that in 2010 the Retired and Annuity Pay (R&A) program will transition back to the Government. The R&A program has been outsourced to a private contractor since 2002. DFAS believes that bringing the R&A program back in-house will result in a more securely managed processing environment, better service, improved efficiency and the potential for significant cost savings. DFAS? reintegration of the R&A program, and AAFMAA?s reintegration of the services function, show that both entities are committed to providing a seamless transition of functions.
This will not change AAFMAA?s processing of R&A allotment input for members who provide authorization.
