    From what I remember is is paid after the travel voucher is submitted at your new base. Correct me if I'm wrong though

    You have to specifically request a DLA advance to get it before you move. If you do that, you should get it as early as 10 days before detach and as late as after. If you don't request an advance, you will get it after your DH settles his travel when he checks into the new command.

    amanda is correct DLA is not automatic- you need to apply for it.

    also you can apply to get the per diem and MALT ( MALT if you are driving a POV) in advance .

    we applied for advance DLA and were told it should be deposited 10 days before we PCS.

    we also applied for advance pay just to have a cushion and that should have been deposited already, but surprise surprise it wasn't.......DH had to go in to talk to them and well, they never submitted ANY financial paperwork so more than likely we'll see the money after we get to Florida.....sigh.....things like this happen every single time we PCS. hopefully this will be the last.......

    well one thing we learned after it happened to us moving here was to build a moving fund if possible......we put in for advance DLA and advance pay (don't plan on using it, but if we need the money it is there and if not we'll just pay it back.....just a safety net)....so hopefully we won't have to use our own cash reserve. It will all work out.....
