The My Service Benefits (MSB) program, which includes the MyArmyBenefits (MAB) and MyAirForceBenefits (MyAFB) websites, announced the upcoming launch of new online benefit calculators that assist Soldiers, Airmen, Guardians, and their families in planning for their future. The previous MAB and MyAFB calculators provided estimates of retirement pay for the Blended Retirement System (BRS), Redux, High-3, and Final Pay retirement systems as well as calculations for Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) Premiums, Survivor Benefits, and pay changes surrounding Deployment. The new calculators offer these same capabilities plus an improved user experience and additional calculators for Medical Retirement, RMC (Regular Military Compensation), and SCAADL (Special Compensation for Assistance with Activities of Daily Living).

Once the new calculators are online, Soldiers, Airmen, Guardians, and their spouses can use their Common Access Card (CAC) and/or DS Logon to access them on the MAB and MyAFB websites. Requiring a log-in allows IPPS-A (Integrated Personnel and Pay System – Army) and MilPDS (Military Personnel Data System, Air Force Personnel Center) to pull a military member’s data and prepopulate it in the calculator fields for personalized benefit estimates and information. The new and improved versions of the benefit calculators will provide the same great access to a personalized report that Soldiers, Airmen, and Guardians are accustomed to receiving from the previous benefit calculators but with added capabilities and additional calculators that help serve a larger population of service members.

As the MSB team works to make the new calculators available on the websites, the benefit calculators will be offline and unavailable. During this time, an alternative method of performing these financial planning estimates must be used.

Please choose one of these options:

  1. Contact the MyArmyBenefits or MyAirForceBenefits Help Desk for assistance in performing a calculation. Use the online contact form on the MAB and MyAFB websites or call (888) 721-2769.
  2. Visit the Department of Defense Military Pay website to perform a calculation.
  3. Contact your Retirement Services Officer (Army) or Financial Counselors (Air Force) for assistance with calculations.

The previous benefit calculators will remain offline until the new calculators are ready for their debut. Please follow our social media pages for MAB (Facebook and Instagram) and MyAFB (Facebook and LinkedIn), and check our websites for status updates on when the new and improved calculators will be available online.
