A 1099 Retired Statement, also known as 1099-R statement, shows your income from pensions, annuities and other retirement plans and the federal tax withheld for that income. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, DFAS, begins sending out 1099-R statements to Air Force retirees and annuitants beginning in mid-December and these statements should arrive by mid-January. Retirees and annuitants may not receive these statements if they have recently changed addresses or if they have agreed to receive their statements in electronic format through their myPay online accounts. In these cases, retirees and annuitants can request another copy of the 1099-R statement.
