All retirees and annuitants are reminded that the Mailing Address listed in Direct Access (DA) is the address all your year-end tax documents will be sent to. Please note that your Home Address will NOT be used for these mailings.
Option 1: It is recommended you verify your Retiree or Annuitant Home and Mailing Address and update as needed, by 1 November 2021, using DA Self-Service. DA Self-Service Sign-On Link: https://hcm.direct-access.uscg.mil/. The following DA User Guide will provide step by step instructions on verifying/changing your address: https://www.dcms.uscg.mil/Portals/10/CG-1/PPC/RAS/GP/ChangeMailingAddress.pdf.
Option 2: If you are unable to validate/update your address listed in DA via Self-Service, you can contact PPC Customer Care at 1-866-772-8724 or (785) 339-2200.
