When Your Disability Rating Changes

If you are rated by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), please check your Retiree Account Statement to make sure your disability rating on file with DFAS is correct.

If you have recently received an upgraded rating, and have not yet seen the change on your DFAS account, please first contact the VA to ensure that your rating change has been processed and sent to DFAS. Once DFAS has received notification of your rating change, it may take up to 30 days to affect your retired pay account.

DFAS and the VA jointly manage the programs that pay eligible military retirees disability entitlements. Both agencies communicate with each other to establish and maintain accounts, but we also need you to ensure your disability percentage on file with DFAS is current.

For more information on what agency to contact when, please visit http://www.dfas.mil/dfas/retiredmilitary/about/contact-who.html.

You may also contact you local DAV Service Officer (Chapter 26 Havelock, 252-646-2229 or 252-349-0006. Serving Carteret and Craven counties.) Your local VFW and American Legion may also provide assistance.

Thank you and God bless
