    DLA Question

    Advertisements
    Does it come on its own or on payday??

    We applied for it a week and a half ago and I've heard it takes 3 weeks?

    Ours came on its own, separate from the paycheck. It came about 2 days before we moved... he applied for it about four weeks before we moved.

    It will be a seperate payment. When do you guys actually move? I know with Navy it's usually deposited 2-3 days before the move date.

    We moved 3 weeks ago, but it was straight out of Basic so. Thanks. Hopefully the 3 weeks is right.

    I'm thinking they aren't rushing because he got here so recently- they either know you're already here and you don't need the money to GET here, or they think you're not here yet and don't need the money YET. Either assumption is obnoxious, because you DO need the money- moving is expensive! They're just not used to wives getting here the same day as their Airmen...

    All of our PCS related money came on its own, not on pay day.

    this is not true- you can apply for it 30 days in advance- it is written this way in the JFTR- tell your DH to go and demad that they allow him to submit the paperwork for travel pay NOW- and tell him to reference the JFTR to get them to do it NOW!!
    I will promise you it will take longer than 10 days to process !

    we were told we could either have it before we moved or when we submitted our travel voucher after we moved - we chose to get it after we PCS.
