Retired U.S. military service members and employees of the Department of Defense can access their retirement accounts online through myPay, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service explains. Retirees with an existing myPay account use their established password and PIN to log in. Others must create an account.
To create a new myPay account, request a temporary password using the Forgot or Need a Password link on the myPay home page. You should receive your password via email if your email address is on file and by mail if it is not, states the Defense Finance and Accounting Service. Through myPay, you can set your retirement account options, request Form 1099-R for tax reporting purposes and manage direct deposits.
