CLAIMS:
Claims for lost or damaged household goods, privately owned vehicles shipped at government expense and theft or vandalism of private property located on the installation may be filed online, 24-hours a day through the Air Force Claims Service Center at:https://claims.jag.af.mil/. Questions and/or assistance can be directed to our local claims assistant by calling 634-3029. Every other Tuesday, at the Right Start Briefing, the legal office provides useful instructions on how to process your claim.

Two important things to keep in mind for household goods claims: noting the damage on the DD Form 1840/1840R (pink forms) and turning in the DD Form 1840/1840R to the online claims service center within 70 days of delivery. First, it is important to note the damages or loss on the DD Form 1840 at the time of delivery and unpacking. If loss or damage is discovered at a later date, annotate the specified damage on the reverse side of the DD Form 1840 (DD Form 1840R) and submit the DD Form 1840 and 1840R to the online claims service center within 70 days from the date of delivery. Failure to note damage/loss or to deliver the forms within 70 days from the date of delivery may have adverse effects on your claim. Although claimants have two years from the date of delivery to file a claim for loss or damage, it is not recommended to wait until the statute of limitations are about to expire to file a claim.

INCOME TAX PREPARATION:
The tax center, located in bldg. 2529, next to the contracting office, on the corner of B Street and Doolittle Road. The office provides free state and federal tax return preparation and filing. This service is normally offered from February through April 15, but it is expanded for returning deploying members and their families. For more information, contact the tax center at 634-5536.

Yesterday members of Beale came together for a speed networking event as part of Women's Equality Day. The focus of the event was to foster small group conversations on a variety of topics, such as the inclusion of men and women across the armed forces, progress that has been made, and how we can improve in the future. 25th Air Force 9th RW Commander Gen Mike Holmes
