    Help Relocation Question

    Advertisements
    I am sure this has been asked a million times but I am potentially moving down to North Carolina from Boston and wanted to know if the military would pay for my relocation. If so how does it work? I know they pay for base to base but obviously I am not near a base. Thank you for all your help in advance!

    heres what ive been told, if your soon to be husband has not done a home of record (where he signed up for the military) to base move, they will pay for it. But if he has & it's just you moving to be with him, they won't pay.

    can't really find much on it, but this might help:

    Timing can be important in a military marriage. If you have PCS (Permanent Change of Station) orders, and get married before you actually make the move, you can have your spouse added to your orders and the military will pay for the relocation of your spouse and her property (furniture and such). However, if you report to your new duty assignment first, and then get married, you will have to pay for the relocation of your spouse out of your own pocket.

    DH and I got married after he already reported to San Diego so we had to pay to fly me there from HI. After that we moved to TX and since we were already married I was able to move with him through the military.

    it does not have to be "base to base"

    but everything else is correct.

    actually you can get reimbursed for a spousal move, I know we did, we got married when he was on leave between duty stations, I wasn't on his orders so I couldn't get pre-moved, but after we got up there we got reimbursed for my plane ticket and what not.


    I will miss you SOS...
