    TLE:

    from the JFTR:

    PART H: TEMPORARY LODGING EXPENSE (TLE) ALLOWANCE WITHIN CONUS



    U5700 PURPOSE


    TLE is intended to partially pay for lodging/meal expenses when a member/dependent(s) occupy temporary quarters in CONUS due to a PCS.



    U5705 AUTHORIZATION



    A. Authorized TLE. A member is authorized TLE reimbursement NTE the number of days authorized in par. U5710:



    1. Before leaving the old CONUS PDS, designated place (see APP A), a member’s CONUS HOR, and/or technical school if the member is reporting to the first PDS; or



    NOTE: TLE is payable incident to a move when entering active duty to the first PDS.



    2. After arriving at the new CONUS PDS, designated place, and the member’s first PDS, if the member is reporting there from HOR or initial technical school; or,



    3. When house-hunting is performed after the member completes PCS travel to the new PDS (i.e., in conjunction with a PCS after arrival at the new PDS); or



    4. For the elapsed time between PDSs when per diem is not payable; and



    5. When the member’s PCS order is cancelled or revoked after the member occupies temporary quarters. The member is authorized TLE reimbursement up to the maximum number of days allowable; or



    6. Upon initial arrival at a CONUS PDS and waiting for Government quarters assignment, or while completing arrangements for other permanent living accommodations when Government quarters are not available.



    NOTE: The ‘TLE days’ covered must be used in the vicinity of the old/new PDS, designated place, and/or the member’s CONUS HOR or initial technical school if the member is ordered to active duty.



    Example: If a member has 8 days elapsed time (e.g., proceed, delay, travel, etc.) between PDSs and the allowable travel time is 7 days, the member may be paid TLE for one day if spent near the old or new PDS. The additional available 'TLE days' may be claimed for days spent:



    a. Near the old PDS before (or after) the member checked out of the activity at the old PDS; and/or



    b. At a designated place (see APP A) en route; and/or



    c. Near the new PDS before (or after) the member checked into the new activity at the new PDS.



    If a member has 22 days elapsed time between PDSs and the allowable travel time is 7 days, the member may be paid:



    a. The maximum allowable TLE allowance for days spent at/near the old/new PDS; or



    b. A designated place en route as described in the 8-day example.



    Change 258
    U5H-1

    6/1/08







    B. Not Authorized TLE. A member is not authorized TLE:



    1. When leaving active duty; or



    2. For a house-hunting trip taken before the member moves to the new PDS (i.e., not in conjunction with a PCS); or



    3. On behalf of dependent(s) acquired after the effective date of a PCS order; or



    4. On behalf of dependent(s) who returned from an OCONUS location prior to PCS order issuance (see Chapter 5, Part J); or



    5. On behalf of dependent(s) relocating for personal safety (see par. U5205); or



    6. When ordered to Indeterminate Temporary Duty (ITDY).



    NOTE: A member is authorized TLE for the acquired dependent for the next PCS assignment which also includes the vicinity of the place at which the dependent was acquired.



    U5710 TIME LIMITATIONS



    TLE reimbursement is limited to:



    1. 10 days for a PCS to a CONUS PDS (a member may split the days among old CONUS PDS, new CONUS PDS, and designated place in CONUS); or



    2. 5 days for a PCS to an OCONUS PDS (a member may split the days between old CONUS PDS and designated place in CONUS);



    3. 10 days for a member reporting to the first CONUS PDS from the HOR or initial technical school. A member may split the days among CONUS HOR, initial technical school, CONUS designated place and CONUS PDS; or

    basically if you stayed in a hotel while waiting for housing, or after checking out of housing you can receive TLE.
    You just have to save your receipts and file the claim. It is not for while traveling, but once you reached your destination or before leaving your original starting point. hth


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

    K, Thanks so much. We had to stay in a hotel for over 2 weeks before getting housing here so I was just wondering if we would get reimbursed or not.

    did you apply for TLE when you first arrived? you needed to show your reciepts for the first 10 days, filed a claim to be reimbursed.

    BUT you have to be approved first-

    if you were not pre approved - then your DH will have to walk the claim in step by step - and it will only be for 10 days if you did not get an extension for the 4 extra days. also there is a chance if you did not get pre approval you will not get reimbursed at all.

    also there is a set rate for hotels- this is based on area- and the food costs are not reimbursed dollar for dollar- food costs are based on number of dependants and is a flat rate regardless of what you spent out of pocket.

    AND if your hotel had a kitchen ( ette) the food allowance is greatly reduced.

    you can never go over 180 per day- for hotel and food costs- again regardless of how many dependants you have and what your out of pocket costs were.
