Hey ladies...

I was just wondering about dislocation allowance. We are getting ready to PCS soon and it's the first time! I've heard you are supposed to either get this dislocation allowance or temporary lodging allowance. Do you know when we'll receive this? My DH is USMC and our flight date is June 4th.

I know with with Army you have to request it a few weeks before you leave to get it before. If you don't get the request in on time then you get it at a later date.

I know he did his transfer data sheet about two weeks ago. He said he requested it on there. Is that all we needed to do? Or should we call IPAC?

I really don't know. We are army. We got ours about a week before we left.

Ok thanks for the info you did have! I am asking because a friend PCS's from here about a month ago and they went to IPAC to put in for their allowance but never recieved it!

You should get both, but if he applies for it before you go, you'll get it about 10 days after her applies for it.

Where are you going to/from? That may be why things are different.
