Veterans who receive retirement income from the Department of Veteran's Affairs receive 1099-R statements each year. These tax forms provide the amount veterans received in retirement income for the previous tax year, which veterans then report to the Internal Revenue Service on their tax returns. If you have not received your 1099-R, or if you have misplaced it, you can request a copy from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service online or over the phone.
Press "4" to enter the 1099-R request menu.
Enter your Social Security number. The system will mail a copy of the 1099-R to the address the DFAS has on file within seven to 10 days.
