DA Form 7574 Incapacitation Pay Monthly Claim

What Is DA Form 7574?

DA Form 7574, Incapacitation Pay Monthly Claim Form is a document used for claiming incapacitation pay and providing the information necessary to determine the service member’s eligibility to receive it. The incapacitation pay monthly claim form has no security classification and is approved for public release with unlimited distribution.

The latest version of the form – sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 7574 – was released by the Dept. of the Army in March 2008. An up-to-date DA Form 7574 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the APD website.

Upon being notified of a soldier’s injury or disease, unit commanders must immediately ensure that appropriate medical care is provided to the soldier depending upon the type of affliction or illness. The soldier must then be assisted in preparing the necessary claim form and be given travel orders to go to a Military Treatment Facility.
