Travel settlements are typically paid within five workdays. Members seeking additional funds to set up households may draw advance pay up to 180 days after arrival with their commanders’ approval. Also, all members can use the government travel card for all official travel-related expenses. Be sure to visit your departing FSO within 30 days of your departure so they can brief you concerning your PCS pay and travel entitlements and prepare your records for departure.
