    DH is being Discharged

    Advertisements
    And we are kinda lost. We are planning to move back to the east coast when his papers are final. But he doesnt think they will give him the money to move back there.

    The military will pay to send us home right?

    As long as your command sponsored (and they don't have a legal reason not to) they will move him back to his home of record or to where ever he has decided to settle.

    Separating from Service
    Members separating from the service on a Voluntary Separation with Incentive (VSI) or a Special Separation Bonus (SSB) have the same entitlements as retirees. Members separating on the transition management program (TAMP) or separating involuntarily between have the same entitlements as retirees.
    Separation Orders
    Members separating from the service have 180 days from the effective date of discharge to move personal property at government expense. If unsure of where they want to move, local storage of up to 180 days may be requested.

    Types Of Moves And Basic Entitlements | Military.com

    "Members living in government quarters and separating or retiring, may move locally out of the quarters (Local Move) and still have their shipping rights within the authorized time limit."

    As I recall you don't get any of the money that you (DLA etc) However if you do a DITY move (Do it yourself) then they pay you 75% of whatever it would cost the military to move you. If you plan right, that will pay for your gas, renting the truck and any hotel stays/food etc and still have a little left over although it may not be a lot depending where you are moving from.

    It still depends on what is on his discharge paperwork. Way back when they used to only discharge to home of record only. Don't hold me to it, but I think now they will pay to move you where ever you want to go as long as it is not farther than your home of record.
    So say your dh's home of record (where he first enlisted) from Ohio and your stationed in Washington state, they will only pay for the mileage equal to your mileage to your home of record. It is on you to pay for the rest of the way.

    where is his home of record? if his home of record is in those states or as far from WA as those two states are then yes. If its Idaho or Colorado, then no. but yes they will send you to his home of record, if yours is different unless its shorter in distance than his than no.

    Also he needs to get started with the VA. Getting that started will help him later on. He will need to get a packet done including his discharge orders, medical files etc. Even if he isn't eligible for anything now, it will help him later for benefits as he ages or for other benefits he may be eligible for.

    it depends on the seperation code- but unless retireing or medically retired- or medically seperation with severance they will pay to move you to the HOR or equal distance.

    example- DS got out at the end of his contract- his HOR was chicago IL- but he was going to live in MI- they paid for him to go as far as chicago and he paid the 600 dollars for the difference from CHicago to central MI. they just took the money from his last check.
