    Question When do you actually receive per diem?

    Advertisements
    Can someone explain when we will receive Per Diem? I know the rate and all but when do you actually receive the money? This is for a PCS, if that matters. Same question for MALT as well. I know this rate as well, just need to know when you get it.

    you can apply for it 30 days before PCSing or you can apply for it after you PCS - it is your choice.

    we always take those 2 allowances and the DLA in advance - that way we do not have to dip into our savings too much ( if at all)

    Since we have a gov't card we just turn in a travel voucher and get all our money after we PCS. That way they have less chance of over paying us and us having to scramble to give them money back.

    He has to go to finance and ask for any advance allowances he is allowed for a pcs. They will require a copy of his orders and than they figure out the distance between where he is to where he'll be going as well as how many dependents and figure out what the amounts he is allowed and than they give a percentage. Than once you are moved you submit all documents and are given the rest if there is any due.

    The Navy does not allow members to use the Govt. Card for PCS'ing.

    Our move in Aug we were told our move money should be to us 7-10 days before our move. If not you are to check into it. We didn't get our money 7 days before, so we had to find out why. Well come to find out our paperwork wasn't put in. We got it 2 days later.

    We always opt for the after move payback option. The navy is notorious for giving money and taking it back without much notice/notice at all. We like paying up front and then getting reimbursed. There is no confusion that way.
