Current federal employees can contact their human resources departments for this information. Form SF-50 is officially a "Notification of Personnel Action" and it determines an employee's retirement eligibility and pension based on work in a specific time period.

  • Q:

    How can a person get a copy of their DD-214?

    A:

    In order to obtain a DD-214 (or separation document) from The National Archives, it is necessary to compile personal information, such as name and dates of service, and complete an application form. It is important to note, however, that it is unlikely (although not impossible) that DD-214 documents will be available for those who served in the Army prior to 1960 or in the Air Force prior to 1964. This is because a fire in 1973 destroyed most of the military records from before these years.
