    Question Ok got another ???

    Advertisements
    Or rather a couple more questions

    I have forgotten a few things since the ex joined the Army. So.....

    DF and I are getting married July 1st. Then he's going to put my kids and I on as his dependents. Does anyone know or remember how long it took for Tricare and Dental to take effect?? I wanna say I remember it taking effect as soon as we filled out the paperwork and was in the DEERS system but I dont want to be wrong.

    And how many days before payday does the LES post?


    Ok last one, I think, anyone use on post child care? Especially at Ft Hood.

    thanks ya'll.

    no the ex isnt in the army anymore. he used my oldest son to get out. he took him to CO and I was in TX. He was a single parent soldier and had no family care plan (thats why he took farren up there) so they told him he needed to get one. He said he didnt have anyone up there that could help with him so they discharged him, he was going to wind up being discharged medically if he hadnt taken Farren up there, he has PTSD real bad plus some schizo traits.

    My dental threw the navy didn't take effect immediatly..I had to wait I want to say a month for it to go threw..I remember because I was waiting for that day to hurry and come so I can get my painful wisdom teeth out but Tricare was immediate.

    Depends on when you sign up. If you sign up before the 20th, it was be effective on the 1st of the month (roughly 10 days later). If you sign up after the 20th, it won't be effective till the following month (so about 1 month, 10 days later). I believe that's how UCC works too.
