FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED, RETIRED OR SEPARATED...

COMBAT-RELATED SPECIAL COMPENSATION

Combat-Related Special Compensation was created to offset the reduction in military retirement pay for veterans who receive Department of Veterans Affairs compensation for service-connected disabilities. In June 2003, Congress enacted the program to restore that offset pay when the veteran's disabilities are combat-related.

PERSONNEL RECORDS REQUESTS

Retired or Separated on or after Oct. 1, 2004
Those who separated or retired on or after Oct. 1, 2004, please contact the Total Force Service Center (TFSC) at 1-800-525-0102, or visit
milConnect. You can also e-mail, mail or fax a signed Standard Form 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records

 

Those requesting a deceased relative's record will need to provide their relationship to the former military member so next of kin (NOK) relationship can be verified. If the relative was deceased after their separation or retirement, proof of death must also be provided as described on the instruction page of the SF 180.

AIR FORCE BOARD FOR CORRECTION OF MILITARY RECORDS (AFBCMR)

If an Airman has separated from the Air Force, their only option for appeal is through the Board for Correction of Military Records. This board, established under Section 1552, Title 10, United States Code, is the highest level of administrative appeal in the Air Force. If they believe an error or injustice has occurred, they may apply to the AFBCMR. The Board considers all applications properly brought before it. In appropriate cases, it directs the correction of military records to remove an error or injustice.  

AIR FORCE RETIREE SERVICES

The Air Force Retiree Services website offers the retiree family in-depth information on the Survivor Benefit Plan, plus a list of Air Force Retiree Activities Offices worldwide and various other resources.


SPECIAL SELECTION BOARDS

The Defense Officer Personnel Management Act established special selection boards effective Sept. 15, 1981. U.S. law gives military services the authority to reconvene boards to consider officers for promotion, regular Air Force appointment, professional military education, selective early retirement, reduction-in-force and/or selective continuation. In addition to considering active duty, Guard and Reserve officers, retired or separated officers are also considered provided they meet all board requirements.
