23. REMARKS
POLICY GUIDANCE
The purpose of an advance of pay incident to PCS is to provide a Servicemember with funds to meet the
extraordinary expenses of a Government-ordered relocation, per DODPM Part 4.
An advance of pay shall not be authorized for the specific out-of-pocket expenses covered by advances of
other pays and entitlements if such advances are used. The Servicemember may be authorized an advance of pay
to the extent that incurred or anticipated expenses exceed those covered by the following advances or
reimbursements, or are outside the scope of those entitlements:
a. Overseas station housing allowance;
b. Servicemember and/or dependent travel allowances and per diem;
c. Dislocation allowance;
d. Basic allowance for quarters and/or variable housing allowance.
An advance of pay for a PCS move in the same geographic area of a Servicemember's prior duty station, or
place from which ordered to active duty, is only authorized when the Servicemember moves his/her household
effects at Government expense. Proof of HHG shipment is required before advance pay for PCS moves in the same
geographic area is paid.
An advance is not intended to provide funds for such items as investments, vacations, or the purchase of
consumer goods that are not the result of direct expenses resulting from the Servicemember's PCS orders. Except
under extraordinary conditions, an advance pay must be repaid before an advance for a subsequent PCS may be
paid.
Servicemembers should consult appropriate Service regulations concerning grade levels requiring Command-
er's approval of a PCS advance that does not exceed 1 month's pay.
AIR FORCE MEMBERS ONLY:
E4/SRA and below must have Commander's approval for all PCS advance pay
payments.
