    DLA?

    Advertisements
    I am trying to figure out what Dh will get money wise when he transfer in less than 2 weeks. Here is the situation.

    - DH's boat moved from VA to NH for an overhaul
    - Kids and I stayed in VA
    - DH made chief and now has orders to go to a boat homeported in VA

    He did not receive any kind of DLA hwen the boat moved up to NH, but since the kids and I are already in VA will he be entitled to DLA or just mileage and expenses? He has official PCS orders that are taking him from NH to VA, but he has been a geo-bach while in NH.

    if you are not moving in connection with the PCS and he moves on the economy he will rate DLA without dependants-

    if he is living on the boat - he will not get anything --unless or until you move- regardless if you move on the economy or into housing and then you will rate DLA with dependants even if you move at a later date.

    PCS allowances are Milelage and per diem- they do not pay based on expenses- they are both flat rate allowances
    mileage is 27 cents a mile and per diem for him is 109 per day.

    What do you mean when you say economy? He will not be living on the boat as we own a home.

    if he is moving back home to live with you in your home- no you will not get DLA- DLA is to offset the cost of moving INTO a new home.

    economy is non gov owned or leased housing or PPV-
