FY2001 Dislocation Allowance
|Note: These rates are only payable when a second DLA is paid IAW par. U5630-B6.|
You may be entitled to a dislocation allowance (DLA) when relocating your household due to a PCS. However, keep in mind that DLA is intended to partially reimburse relocation expenses not otherwise reimbursed and probably will not reimburse all of your relocation expenses.
DLA payment limitations are based on a fiscal year. Ordinarily members are entitled to only one DLA payment per fiscal year. However, there are some exceptions. For more information, please see JFTR, par. U5620. If you still have questions please contact your local finance office.
By law there is no DLA entitlement when the PCS is from your home (or the place where you entered active duty) to your first permanent duty station (PDS). In other words, theres no DLA entitlement when coming on active duty.
By law there is also no DLA entitlement when the PCS is from your PDS to your HOR/HOS. In other words theres no DLA entitlement when leaving active duty.
If you do not move dependents, you receive DLA at the without-dependents rate if you dont occupy Government quarters at your new permanent duty station.
