This online upload tool is for submitting the Claim for Unpaid Compensation of Deceased Member of the Uniformed Service (SF 1174) form and supporting documentation (e.g. death certificate). This form is used by surviving beneficiaries of deceased members so DFAS can calculate and pay the member's final pay.
Ensure that your SBP Annuitant SSN, along with the Member SSN, is included ON ANY FILE so DFAS can identify and process the request as promptly as possible. Any cover page or supporting information on your request should be included within the main file and not as a standalone page.

**Important Requirements to Ensure a Successful Submission**

  • Any non-PDF file is prohibited. Examples include: Word, Excel, Image, or Text Files.
  • If needed, please convert your file to PDF ("Save As" PDF or "Print To" PDF) before submitting.
  • Ensure the Member's SSN is present on every document (preferably on each page). For requests pertaining SBP Annuitant(s), please make sure the SSN(s) are present for SBP Annuitant(s) as well.
