Separating or Retiring Military Service Members
Are you separating or retiring from service? Read more on what you need to know regarding your travel claim at the end of your military service. You are authorized the following entitlements:
Monetary Allowance in Lieu of Transportation (MALT)
Plus (Per Diem)
Personally Procured Moves (PPM)
When you complete a PCS move, you will in-process with your local Defense Military Pay Office (DMPO) if DFAS pays your PCS. Your DMPO/travel office will answer specific entitlement questions and assist with completing your travel voucher package.
If DFAS does not pay your PCS travel claim, contact your servicing travel office.
List any previously paid advances on your travel voucher. Including your travel advance information is critical to make sure you are paid correctly. We don't want you to owe the government at some future date for an uncollected advance.
If DFAS settles your PCS travel, your DMPO sends your travel package to our DFAS Rome, NY location. We process the following types of vouchers for Army members:
- Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves
- Do-It-Yourself / Personally Procured Move (DITY/PPM
- Retirement claims
If DFAS does not process your military PCS claim, ensure you check with your servicing travel office for any additional specific requirements.
Include a current email address
Make sure you enter a current, valid email address on your DD1351-2 travel voucher. We send your 'notification of receipt' email to the address you provide. We don't want you to miss messages from us about your travel voucher!
