    In the AF it takes about 10-14 days from the time you request it.

    It just depends, can take anywhere from 10-30 or more days. They should give him a timeline when he does his paperwork. I am going to guess you are talking about moving money, not actual pay.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Yes, we will be requesting advance pay on the travel pay's as well as on his base pay! We cant move till we receive something since we are completely broke...

    ah ok. just remember the advance pay will have to be paid back and I think you only get a year to do that, so that will be taken from your next 12 checks. You may also not be approved for advance pay. They can deny that. but you will still get your other travel money.

    Its to prevent people from using it for other things, We have never had to take advance pay as our advance travel and DLA is more than enough to get us down there and set up shop(so to speak) they really don't like giving advance pay because it messes you up for a year and can cause other issues.

    You can ask for it be paid back in 24 months but you have to ask for it. We are paying back money over the course of two years

    I really dont know why they would refuse a person an advancement on their base pay for a move.. Interesting though...
