Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the federal government, state governments, insurers, employers, and individuals are given shared responsibility to reform and improve the availability, quality, and affordability of health insurance coverage in the United States.
For the 2015 tax year, Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) is required to furnish a Form 1095 to each employee that worked any full time hours. MyPay has been updated to allow you to elect to receive this tax form electronically. Civilian employees are highly encouraged to log into myPay to turn on electronic delivery. Go to myPay and from the main menu of myPay, select “Turn On/Off Hard Copy of IRS Form 1095.”
Electronic delivery is the fastest and most secure method to receive your 1095 once it becomes available in January of 2016. Please opt in to receive an electronic copy no later than December 31, 2015.
Visit http://www.irs.gov/Affordable-Care-Act for more information on the ACA and tax reporting. For additional details on the tax information you will be receiving from DFAS, visit go.usa.gov/3pQUR.
If you have questions about logging into myPay and/or making changes to your electronic elections in myPay, contact the DFAS Centralized Customer Support Unit at 1-888-DFAS411 or 1-888-332-7411 and select option #5.
