The Defense Finance and Accounting Service is making it easier to log into its online pay-management site, myPay, and expanding access and services. The site will allow shorter passwords that expire less often, permit additional personnel to access their pay statements online and provide other reports and options to certain personnel. Passwords will have to be only nine characters long rather than 15, but they still need to contain a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. New passwords will expire every 150 days instead of 60.
Sailors and airmen will be able to add a second direct deposit account to their profiles, giving them another way to receive travel and different payments. Soldiers and airmen will also receive annual military compensation statements that give a rundown of pay and benefits received “to more accurately show what military service is worth,” according to myPay DFAS Mil. The update will give Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps Junior ROTC instructors access to their leave and earnings statements online rather than by mail only.
