    Separate clothing allowance??

    Advertisements
    So I know how the regular clothing allowances work. However my husband is at the NSA and the shop that he is requires they were civilian clothes. He's already done everything he needs to do to get the allowance, however we're wondering how long it usually takes to get something like that since it's not dependant to his enlistment date. Anyone have insight?

    Thanks!

    if memory serves when hubby was in similar type of unit it took about 2 months. I suggest your hubby get minimal what he needs and then just wait for the reimbursement. He likely will not get the allowance prior to when he needs to start. he will get two allowances, one for military clothes, one for civilian.

    Thank you! He's already received his yearly clothing allowance, so he'll be just getting the allowance for civilian clothing. He purchased things he's needed already. Luckily, he already dresses the way they want him to, so he hasn't had to buy much.

    yes he will get an additional allowance.. save it, or use it however you wish.
