DD Form 2660 Statement of Claimant Requesting Recertified Check

What Is DD Form 2660?

DD Form 2660, Statement of Claimant Requesting Replacement Check is a form used by intended recipients of U.S. Treasury checks to request a substitution in cases when the checks are lost, stolen, destroyed or canceled due to limited payability. The current DD Form 2660 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Executive Services Directorate website.

The information provided on the form will be used by Disbursing Offices to make the final decision on a case or cancel the original check and may be disclosed to the Department of Justice for law enforcement purposes (under 5 U.S.C. Section 552a of the Privacy Act).

The DD 2660 - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 2660 - was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) in August 2015 with all previous editions obsolete.
