DD Form 2558 Authorization to Start, Stop or Change an Allotment

What Is DD Form 2558?

DD Form 2558, Authorization to Start, Stop or Change an Allotment is a form used for starting a new allotment to deduct from a retired pay account, or to stop or change an already existing one. The form is a necessary tool for providing financial support to dependents during the absence of the service member.

The Department of Defense (DoD) updated the form in December 2017. The most recent DD Form 2558 fillable version is available for download and digital filing below or can be found on the Executive Services Directorate website.

Filling out the DD Form 2558 is usually the most secure way of ensuring that the financial needs of the service member's family are met. The process requires establishing a bank account for the allotment payments.
