Q. How do I report the death of a uniformed service member or sponsor?

A: You have three options when reporting the death of a uniformed service member or sponsor.
First, you can take a copy of the death certificate to the nearest uniformed services ID card-issuing facility.
Second you can mail a copy, without mail origins annotated, of the death certificate along with the sponsor’s social security number to the DMDC Support Office at 400 Gigling Road, Seaside, CA 93955.
Lastly you can fax it to the Defense Manpower Data Center Support Office at 1-831-655-8317.
If the sponsor was retired Army, Air Force, Navy or Marines, a copy of the death certificate must also be sent to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service. To notify DFAS, please call 1-800-321-1080.
To report the death of a an annuitant, Lighthouse Keeper, or Coast Guard or Nautical Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration retiree, please call the US Coast Guard Personnel Service Center Retiree and Annuitant Services Branch at 1-800-772-8724. You may also fax them at 1-785-339-3770.
