Monetary Allowance in Lieu of Transportation (MALT)

MALT is used as mileage reimbursement for service members and their dependents during a PCS move.  When a member and dependents relocate on a service member’s PCS move, MALT reimbursement is authorized for two POCs, if used.  MALT is paid on a per mile basis for the official distance of each portion of the travel. The MALT Rate per authorized POC is $.20/mile for PCS travel beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2019.
