Customer Service Email

We typically have a hard time finding a direct email address to reach customer service departments. Companies tend to prefer online forms to standard emails, but that is not the case with DFAS customer service. There are MANY email addresses to choose from.

We were able to find a master contact form https://corpweb1.dfas.mil/askDFAS/custCategories.jsp for DFAS customer service. Simply choose a primary and secondary topic to reach the customer service email form.

Our Experience

DFAS customer service is an automated system. There are detailed instructions listed to help navigate the customer service line faster. You can press 1 for retired military, 2 for current military, 3 for travel, 4 for debts, 5 for MyPay and 6 for garnishments. If you have any other issues not listed, press # for additional options. We were unable to reach a customer service agent because we are not employed by the military.

  1. I am trying to locate a phone number for someone within your IT department. Specifically, the person that updates your Pay Period Calendar. I have automated it completely so that all you have to do is change the year. No typing and looking things up. It even fills out the text at the bottom of the chart. I would be willing to share my Excel spreadsheet, if I can talk to someone other than a recording……

  2. LtCol. Georgia E.Phillips has not recieved her back pay due to your negligence saying they she had died in October,2012.We have on our recording the conversation admitting the mistake you had made.Her pay has started again but the back pay has not been given to her yet.What is the problem that you cannot correct your problem.She has to have a caregiver now due to a stroke in 2009.The money needs to be put into her account now!

  3. have tried for weeks to contact ANYONE that could help recover my user ID and Password in order to obtain my 2013 W-2. only
    recordings of call another time!! Cannot even find a viable email for my situation…

  4. I requested a temporary password for my pay account-received it today and mypay will not accept it. Need help!!!

  5. I have tried for 2 weeks to download my W-2 from MyPay. It is impossible to thread through all the passwords and requirements to even get to the point of viewing my W-2. I have a BA in computer science and worked for over 20 years as a computer systems engineer at KSC. Mypay is above my skill level. I have no choice but to give up. Who designed this fiasco? I will stipulate that your security has me beat.

  6. I’ve called DAFS to request Form to terminate our SBP in Aug 2013.Filled it out with proper notary stamp. Still receiving Payment reguest for balance due.
    Can’t get any help. Aging Vet need.

  7. I have started a home loan modification with my mortgage company. Therefore, I am respectfully requesting an Official Pension Award Letter from DFAS be mailed to my home address at your earliest convience,(#5051). I have made several attempts by Telephone and Fax(s)that I located in MyPay and I have not been able to make contact with anyone.
