Words of Wisdom


The administrative process for an Active Duty member to add a dependent begins at MPF. The AD member will need to obtain a dependent application, then complete and return the application to MPF. Although the documents required vary depending on the type of dependent, MPF is still the go-to authority in this matter and therefore better equipped at advising the AD member based on his/her fact pattern. Keep in mind that the procedure of adding dependents is strictly AF rule driven, and that a "glitch" in the process could constitute a legal conflict between the AD and the Air Force.
