The household claims process has been streamlined with the development of the Air Force Claims Service Center. You can contact the CSC help desk at DSN 312-986-8044 or 877-754-1212. They are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except federal holidays).

Please come to our office for guidance regarding the submission and completion of any other claims, such as government, hospital and Army and Air Force Exchange Service claims.
The Altus Air Force Base Office of the Staff Judge Advocate offers free professional legal advice concerning a wide range of personal civil legal matters. Legal assistance appointments may be provided to those with valid military identification. Specifically, legal assistance is available to active-duty personnel (including National Guard and reservists on Title 10 status or in preparation for deployment), their dependents and retired military personnel, regardless of service branch or unit of assignment.
Air Force attorneys may give legal advice but cannot draft court documents, represent members or their families in court, provide advice regarding civilian business matters, or provide advice regarding criminal matters. You can call the Legal Office to schedule an appointment. However, Air Force attorneys may not provide any legal advice or legal information by phone. Attorney-client confidentiality is strictly observed.

We are located on the first floor of Building 52 in Room 1701. Normal legal services hours are Mon - Fri 0730 – 1630, except Thurs when we are closed for training from 1300-1630. Our phone number is 580-481-7294. Our goal is to make appointments available during the week requested or soon thereafter. Emergency cases will be seen as soon as possible.
Notary, powers of attorney (POA), and claims services do not need appointments. These are walk-in services that are offered daily. For POAs, please make sure to have the name and address of the person to whom you are granting the power as well as any relevant information for the specific POA you would like. For example, if the POA involves a car, please bring the VIN, license plate number, and other identifying information for the vehicle.
The Legal Office is equipped to perform basic estate planning. Please go online to https://aflegalassistance.law.af.mil and complete the will worksheet.

Types of Services
Legal advice is available on personal civil legal matters, such as:
Air Force attorneys may not represent members in civilian court or civilian business matters, but they can offer legal advice early and often in order to prevent problems from escalating.
Area Defense Counsel
The Area Defense Counsel (ADC) serves as the public defender for Altus AFB. The ADC is separate from the Legal Office. The ADC defends military members in courts-martial or when any negative administrative actions are being brought against the member. These types of actions include Article 15s, unfavorable information files, control rosters, letters of reprimand, admonishment, and counseling, Officer Performance Report and Enlisted Performance Report referrals, denials of reenlistment and just about any other action that could negatively affect a member’s career. The ADC staff ensures confidentiality with regard to the information provided by clients. Again, the ADC is independent of the base Legal Office and the base command structure, meaning the ADC reports to no one on Altus AFB. Please call 580-481-7501 or DSN 312-866-7501 for assistance. The ADC is located on the second floor of Building 52 in Room 2101.
