    Does anyone know when this form is due?
    Also where can I get the information needed under the 'Payee' portion.
    Address, tel.....
    I need to get it to my bank but I'm sure they'll need it fully filled out before they can do their thing..

    I really don't know... and so far the treasurer's office has not gotten back to my email asking if they've received it.

    The instructions for the Payee section should be in your "Instructions for Candidates Offered Admission".

    The only thing my bank was kind of confused about was in their section, it was the "Account Title" box. So they just put "[my name] - Primary". Hopefully that works.

    I think you want to get the 1199a form turned in soon so that the USMA Treasurers office can set up your Cadet Account. I know the deposit is due prior to 1 JULY 2012. Some banks (USAA) have the form available for a new account owner to dowload. The form already has Section 3 completed and signed.

    Here are the specific instructions:

    To authorize the Defense Military Pay Office – West Point to deposit your pay into this account,
    you must complete Section 1 of the Authorization for Direct Deposit Sign-up Form (Standard
    Form 1199A). You can find the form at http://www.fms.treas.gov/eft/1199a.pdf.
    There are three steps to the process:
    1. Complete items A through G in Section 1 of Standard Form 1199A as indicated:
    a. Block A: Name of payee, address, telephone number. Print the address and phone
    number to which the financial institution can return the completed Standard Form 1199A to you.
    Do not forget the zip code.
    b. Block B: Same name as payee.
    c. Block C: Print your Social Security Number.
    d. Block D: You must open a checking account at a bank of your choice.
    e. Block E: Enter your account number.
    f. Block F: Type of payment is: Fed Salary/Mil. Civilian Pay.
    g. Block G: Leave this blank.
    *Sign your full name and date the form in the Payee/Joint Payee Certification block.
    Section 2: Government Agency Name, enter U.S. Military Academy; Government Agency
    Address, enter West Point, NY 10996

    2. Send or take the completed Standard Form 1199A to the financial institution of your
    choice. The financial institution will complete the form. Make sure you receive copies of the form.
    3. Please mail your forms to the address below or fax them to (845) 938-1827, ATTN: Cadet
    Pay/Class of 2016; you may also email the form to Catherine.osterhoudt@usma.edu.
