MIlitary Service Deposit

Before you begin your Military Service Deposit, you should keep in mind that this is a lengthy process which can take anywhere between 3-6 months.  The processing timeline begins with the employee submitting the required documents to HRO, and ends when the employee’s record is updated to reflect the paid deposit.

To make a deposit for military service performed DURING your technician employment with HING:

  1. Start here (DFAS Military Service Deposit Estimator) to obtain your estimated earnings.  You will need your DD 214 (member 4 copy), and a CAC enabled device.
  2. Fill out the SF 3108 Application to Make Service Credit Payments (Page 1 and 5 only).
  3. Send your Estimated Earnings Statement + SF 3108 + DD 214 to HING HRO Benefits Team to initiate your MSD process.
