MOVING ALLOWANCES

Military Finance is always confusing, and this is especially true when moving overseas.  Read our Military Finance Tips and Essential Information to ensure to find out more about your Military Money Matters.  Armed with this knowledge, you can protect your interests and ensure that you get everything that you are entitled to.


DISLOCATION ALLOWANCE
DisLocation Allowance (DLA) is an allowance given to servicemembers when they have a Permanent Change of Station (PCS), not including the servicemembers' PCS to their first duty station.  DLA also does not apply to a move to the servicemember's Home of Record (when leaving active duty).

DLA guidelines and applicability are covered in the JFTR, Chapter 5, Part G.  DLA is intended to partially reimburse the expense of relocating a household (in addition to the expenses not otherwise reimbursed).  While this allowance may not cover all of your relocation expenses, it will certainly help out.

How much DLA you receive is based on your grade and how many dependents you have at the time of your PCS.  Here you can access current DLA rates.

Partial DLA is also available to servicemembers who are ordered to move into or out of Government family quarters outside of a PCS (ie when quarters are being renovated).  This payment, as of 1 January 2003, is $525.30.
