    Travel Pay?

    Advertisements
    Ok, so hubby graduates Friday and we have to be at Ft Polk by the 25th. We are leaving here on the 16th. I attended a transportation briefing today and movers are coming the 11th. Now here is the question... we are doing a partial DITY and I know they give you an advance on your travel pay.. do we go to finance to deal with that? about how much do they give you?

    yes you will got to your transprtation office-

    it will vary by what your estimated weight - the number of travel days and the number of authorised miles-

    per diem is 109 for the member,75% for you and dependants over 12 and 50% for dependants under 12- this is per AUTHORISED travel day.

    malt is 27 cents a mile per authorised mile-

    the DITY ( now called PPM ) is based on a locality rate - and is from 65 cents a lb to 1.09 per lb on average- ( best to take a middle number x by the estimated weight)
    and you will get a decent round about figure.

    also DLA is paid at 100% and is at least 1800 dollars.

    Good to know... do we have to go to finance though to get the travel pay stuff figured out?

    I do not know how it is for your branch- we have a person called a Yoeman who handles all that stuff- and they are not in finance for us-

    a call to your TMO office should direct you who to see.
